    Drove from almost Salt Lake City to Tacoma in 14 hours. Good to be home. Abbey was very happy to see me!

    So far it’s been two days of cleaning truck, bikes and gear. And probably need another full day of it to include maintenance and some minor repairs.

    I'm on a road trip to Flagstaff for the Overland Expo 2018 will do some riding and camping. On a shoestring budget. Nice article in Tractionerag.

    I need to catch up here, but watching the news, it did blow pretty hard. Did she get out?

    PS: great little article there!

    Yes. She is safe but her house is probably a lost cause. The volcanic activity is indicating a high risk for a massive explosion.

    She's safe, that's the important thing!
