I'm still along. Its great to see your progress and the places you travel. Its particularly welcome as its snowy and about 10 F right now. Not complaining, I prefer being cool, as I can dress for it, compared to being too hot, which I am told I can not undress enough for...and not end up in trouble.
One of the things I am discovering from your and other ride reports is that in CA - apparently one can adjust temperature by changing elevation..nice! (Yeah, it happens everywhere, but not as dependably it seems...)
Its also VERY satisfying to hear first hand reports from some of these places, when there is so much negative rumor and innuendo from people who are NOT traveling. Its pretty sad when it comes to light that some people's comfort zone is living with such a level of fear and ignorance.
I just appreciate the time and effort it takes to A, take the pics, B, write out and document your experiences, and C, upload them to share them. Much appreciated.
Hoping you have a great New Year to come!
