Richfield, UT...“… and here in the land of ATVs is quite the Jamboree…”
The Trekers are on the mountains on their Honda ATVs and I am looking for food……yes, food has been sometimes hard to find on this trip. **Note to food provider on next trips…always prepare double the usual amount!However, this time we are eating out…first to a Steak House and then to a Mexican Restaurant…both good and fun here in Richfield, UT. But the main thing is the ATV group.As I entered Richfield from I-70 the first thing I noticed was that I was out of place. I was certain that I had made the wrong turn and was in an amusement park…but no, it was that the ATVs were on the streets and in the gas stations and cars were not. What a scene. Once I met up with everyone and walked the streets things seemed ok. It just seemed that this was the land of make believe…and we all drove ATVs. During the stay we had a round table discussion with all the local dignitaries and more , with opinions on how things were progressing and how wonderful the event had been. The trails here are fantastic and even I hopped on the new Honda Rincor and took off for the ride of my life! To see the city from one of the highest peaks was awesome…… scary for me, but I am ready for my next ride-hopefully today again. Why can’t we just rides these in the neighborhoods…it makes perfect sense. Just to buzz around in??? I loved the bright red Honda ATV……hint ,hint…….J
