The good news is that my leg has healed up very well. I have almost no discomfort when I do most things. I do get reminded when I stretch it or bend over to pick something up off of the ground.
In the past month, I have not taken a ton of pictures, but here are a few of my favorites.

Here is a shot of the pit area during the races. It is always amazing to see this large field turn into a small city and then back to a pasture in the matter of just a few hours.
This young man is just 15 years old. I have had the pleasure of watching him ride since he was about 7. I think he will be the next big thing in our sport. The best part is that he is a better young man from a great family than he is a rider/racer. Meet Noah Clark.
It is fall in the Ozarks and time for pumpkins. Here is a picture of Amelia, my favorite little pumpkin. She is growing up so fast. She will be 1 year old on October 23.

We love to camp with other couples. Please come join us on the road when we come to your area or just travel to a point along our trip, we would love to see you.
I did an upgrade to our battery and solar system. I installed the battery monitor in the middle. This thing will monitor the state of charge of the batteries and tell me what the rate of flow of power in or out. I also relocated my solar charger to inside the rig behind the TV. We are now doing a better job of using that dead space.
We moved my printer in the hole and have some other storage in there, now that the TV will pivot out of the way. This was just one of the major projects that I was able to complete while we were at the ranch. We are now prepared to take on the beach and desserts of the SW US. I can't wait to be sitting in a lawn chair looking out at the gulf checking my surf casting rod.
We got the boat out for one last run on Bull Shoals Reservoir. It was a beautiful day and the boat ran great. It has now been winterized and put to bed for the long winters sleep. The goal is to work on my conditioning over the winter and spring to be ready to ski next year when we return to Missouri.
As the weather cools off, I have been able to spend some great days out on the ranch cleaning up after the events. I have been able to go riding twice. I have tried to keep it slow to let the leg heal and that works most of the time.
We had Isabella, Will and Amelia come out for the night on Friday. We rode and hung out in the trailer.
