Santa Fe NM
Second Street Brewery at Second Street
This guy is the owner, Mark Waugh, holding my Rocket Republic sign.
We immediately hit it off. After learning about Corvettes Conquer Cancer, he gave me a donation for the American Cancer Society and signed the hood! He had recently lost his mother to cancer.
Mark insisted that I meet him at Santa Fe Brewing (owned by a friend) on the south side of town for a couple of brews.

The manager took us on a tour of the brewery
Mark's friend, the owner, finally arrived. They obviously have fun!
At Mark's suggestion, on the way to Albuquerque, I took the back country route
through Madrid, where the main part of the movie "Wild Hogs" was filmed.
This is Maggie's Diner, where most of the action between the bikers took place.
This was the hangout for the cast & crew during filming
The road toward Albuquerque
The legendary Musical Highway required a little redirection,
as it is only "playable" on the Eastbound side of Historic Route 66.
