    Hi James and Colleen,
    How nice that you got bumped up to first class on your flight. Great idea. I'll have to ask next time. We're headed out tomorrow for Vegas so if you want to join us out there later in the week feel free to stop by.
    Love the pictures and especially the laundry one. :rofl
    Hope you have a good flight back. Liked the statue in the airport too. That's really nice that they can still do something like that in SA.

    I dated a girl who was a year older than me, in High School. She was "moving away" after graduation and I knew it. I'd get an empty spot in my throat when I thought about it. I'm getting the same feeling now; knowing that this is coming to an end!

    This is kinda a ride report, my son who is in the Philippines has taken out some sort of 'bike' I quote from his post. ' Epic adventure on a bike today involving a snapped key in the seat lock, three hot wiring Philippinos , a punctured tyre fixed by a father and son team for 60p , an almost flattened snake , an almost flattened tortoise, and a man who tried to sell me a four bedroomed beach house for/£20k, oh and an abundance of stunning scenery' :huh

    As his mom, am I worried?

    Hi all, it's been a blast following along on the ride with James and Colleen and getting to know some of you too a long the way. Maybe we'll meet again someday on another trip or on the road somewhere. If any of you are ever in Milw. WI and want to go for a ride or just stop for a beer you are welcome to PM. Mike

    Here we are!!!:clap:clap

    It was wonderful walking onto the property, walking into the kitchen and then up the stairs to OUR bed!!!

    We didn't get home until midnight on Monday.

    Tuesday a.m. we jumped in the VW..... that was weird.......where's my motorcycle????

    James turned the key, and, click, click, click....... dead battery!:lol3

    Duh!!!!!

    So, we headed out on foot down to Travis and Megan's and to the three boys.....

    Actually, our little Jack was there waiting to see us too!

    They are all thrilled we are back home. It great to shower them all with hugs and kisses.

    It's surreal walking around Claremont and being back home.

    There's all of this happiness mixed with loss.

    We'll be up at Newcomb's on Saturday morning on our GS's....:clap.....

    By this weekend, I am going to go back through our pictures, folder by folder and post a few from each folder in chronological order ....... a compilation from day one to our last day out.

    Don't leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:cry

    Colleen

    Really stretching out, aren't I?

    At some point I'm going to have to let go.......!:lol3
