Parting Shots From Bisbee, Arizona...




  I can't believe we pulled out of Bisbee's only RV park without meeting the Wheeling It gang. I was in a Blog Fog Funk (it happens...) and hadn't checked in on them, or anyone else for that matter, for a while. Turns out we overlapped in Bisbee... probably a few feet from each other. Oh well... maybe next time. Nina did a terrific two part review of their Bisbee Experience, including some great photos. Have a look by clicking here


A guy can get pretty thirsty after a full day of hiking Bisbee's numerous steep and narrow meandering lanes and alleyways. On our way back to the RV park I caught the unique scent of spent hops. Sure enough, there it was... The Old Bisbee Brewing Company, dead ahead. Maikel and I opted for the Double Hopped IPA... potent, but smooth. This full bodied unfiltered recipe went down easy... a little too easy (Insert Double-Hopped Hiccup Here!).     



Let's just say it's worth the time and expense of a trip to Bisbee just for the O.B.B.C. IPA. In fact, get a growler, the bottle is cool. And be sure to tip the tattooed Bar-Maiden.



Jay Walker! 





One day we biked from the RV park, though Bisbee, to a road that led to the top of Signal Mountain. A real grunt of a grind... as you can see Bisbee in the valley far below.



Then we biked about every street in town. There are a lot of dead ends in Bisbee, so we were forced to take the stairs a few times. We couldn't get up the nerve to ride down... maybe a few years ago, but not now.

That's it! Now, on to Chiricahua... a "rock'in place!
Thanks for tuning into the BCB.

  3. You can get a good workout on the stairs in that town. When I was in Rico, CO I was camped next to a blogger that I follow, but we didn't realize it til about a week later when we read each others blogs. The sites were set up for privacy, so we didn't really see each other coming and going from the RV's.
