Government Canyon in the "Rag"

So much to my surprise and delight my latest issue of the rag arrived on Friday in the mail. My wife called and told me it was here (yes, very exciting times at the FatBob household) . What she neglected to inform me of was that on the cover is mention of riding destinations, in particular Texas, specifically San Antonio, more specifically Government Canyon or GC. Since I've only lived in Texas a short while you can imagine my delight in finding out that there's a mention of my new home town in my favorite zine. So I refrain from looking for the story directly and begin my ritual of thumbing through (Back to Front, pictures first, then looking for reviews and stories that catch my eye). By the time I get to the article about GC it's getting late and the Mrs. is into her must see tv viewing. I sit quietly reading when to my utter shock and amazement there are two words I never expected to see "Fat Bob"! That's right kiddies, yours truly has been immortalized in his favorite zine.
Well, I've got a honey do list from hell today. If you want to read more about GC or my escapades, read this article, or pick up the latest issue of Dirt Rag magazine.

Supercool! What page is that reference to you? I got the Rag earlier this week, but haven't had a chance to carefully go through it.

Sorry man, I've been too busy signing autograph's at the local bike shop to have memorized the page number. When you're a big star like me, you have people to worry about the little details.... I'll have my peeps call yours, we'll do lunch... very hollywood....
