    I'm surprised it looks so green... did you get some rain?

    That sage brush and the pinions in the back stay green, unless they are just dead (or it's winter, for the sage)

    A week or so ago my new tires showed up. Followed a few days later with my new lighter and cooler gloves.
    Now, to pick a nice hot day this week to fight with tires. :imaposer

    Right now my plan is to head maybe to the a KOA I've stayed in before over in Glendale from the beach here. A very long day's ride, but I figure that will be cool enough to be comfy sleeping. And they have a shower and there is a German bakery about ten miles south of there for my dinner sandwich.
    So, planning is progressing of sorts.

    I'm sorry to say that Jim and I will be riding up in Idaho during that time.

    Bummer.

    Best regards,
    Uli

    Ride safe,

    Without you guys being there as a bad influence I'm sure things will be much calmer, quieter and... a lot less fun. :(

    Ride safe,

    Here I sit about nine days from my departure into the ride.
    I've made a reservation for my first night on the road, I think I know where dinner will be had. And I've got a pretty good idea of how I plan to wander into 3 Step.
    Sorting my gear and such I find clothing items that have worn out and need replacing. Missing straps and bags that are nowhere to be found. I'm certain these will turn up once I buy replacements. :lol3

    This has been laying on my side table for a few months. Once a person manages to survive past a certain age they can qualify for one of these.

    I've found the chargers for the camera and GoPro and I even found the spare battery for that thing. And no it was not in the box marked GoPro and Digital camera. :imaposer

    Retiring to life at the beach I've worn shoes and socks only a handful of times. And my motorcycle wool socks that fit my travel boots even less. So, I found of course that all of these have worn out heels.
    A shopping trip to REI this week seems likely.
