Good luck with the family thing, your family sounds a little like mine. Anyway the West Coast is just not the same without you. Stay warm and dry.

cold and wet is miserable, but cold and wet and stuck on the slab is even worse!

I wish I had known. I don't live far from where you were, and I have a truck and a trailer...

Hello or goodbye..........

I had a wonderful visit.
We ate too much pizza, played a few games and stayed up until almost 3am chatting away like school girls.
(well, not all of us.........Some of us were snoring away on the other couch )


I had gone to sleep in the baby's room and crashed hard. Didn't hear them get the baby or start playing a game and making breakfast.
I was a great feeling to wake up and go out in to the kitchen and see this great little family buzzing around.

It's finally clear out and we decide around noon or so to get on the road.
Clear, but COLD!
Most of the gear but my gloves and boots dried out. Luckily I had brought another pair of gloves, but still ended up wearing Grant's heated ones! The circulation in my hands and feet are not great. So for those items including the heated jacket, I was grateful.



The take off.......











The sad goobye.........











And we're off again..........
Pretty much looked like this the whole way back to Memphis.........










Yep, lots and lots of this..............












And one of these........

Nice first video. You'll find that it can become addicting - I made a bracket that mounts on the headlight "ears" of my /6 to which I attach my digicamcorder to make ride videos. You can't really move it around, but it keeps both hands on the bars and lets you make cool movies in the twisties.

Glad you've had the time to visit with family.
