One More Day!

Only one more day before leaving on my road trip. I modified my itinerary slightly to go through Corvallis but it is only a guideline. It just sort of depends on how things go. The SPOT map on the right under the heading "Where Am I?" should show my current location. I plan to continue posting throughout the trip but it is dependent on the availability of Internet access along the way.

    I will be following along wile I can. But I'm really excited!

  3. Richard:

    ride safe, stay alert. Summer is arriving on Wednesday, going to be HOT down here

    Riding the Wet Coast

  4. Another post on trips..while I am stuck here in guys really know how to rub it in!

  6. Have a great trip Richard! I know you'll have a lot of fun on those roads!

  7. Wow, tomorrow is the day. Sure got here quick.

    Let us know iffin you need to leave anything with us to take to you in Baker City. You have my cell number and I think Brad gave you our address.

    Have a great ride and enjoy yourself.

  8. Safe travels my friend, see you soon.

  9. Hi everybody, this is the wife left behind. Safe travels, honey, and I'll be following you on this blog and the SPOT all the way. See you in Santa Cruz!

  10. I'm jealous as hell. Have a great trip!

  11. Dude, I am closing in on the last 300 miles of a 2500 mile ramble over five days through the Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge on my GPS-free Bonneville, where most of the time I had no phone and no idea where I was. It would have driven you mad I think judging by your somewhat anal itinerary.
    Say hullo to Santa Cruz for me and defy the grumpy servers at Marianne's for a pistachio cone. 20 years in that town and I never could get them to be vaguely personable though the ice cream rocked.

  12. Looks like you are further than planned! Kluane Lake. How many miles did you travel today? If you can read this, take a picture of the Lake and your campsite, please. How about every place you stop?

    Love, Your Wife
