Mark, so awesome to meet, sit, and chat with you at SweatFest. I'll be checking back here daily, as usual. Lisa and I get home tomorrow. Buen viaje.

I didn't realize you were heading out so soon.

I guess this means we have already said our goodbyes, so let me add: Safe Travels, and Good Times.

See you when you return.

Thanks so much for the visit today and it was a treat to help you change your tires for the first leg of your RTW to Mexico and South! Glad we got that rear heidenau tire installed ok - that tire has some very stiff sidewalls

I can't believe you are off for a very long time on your RTW, but we are all hoping you do make it back to Portland eventually

Have a great ride south and enjoy the sun for us PNW'ers - I think summer is just about over.

Have an EPiC RTW!
