Just got home from about 4000 mile trip to Denver then San Diego and back. I had a great time visiting with grand kids and their parents. Went through some really nasty rain in Colorado/Utah. You may have seen some mention of the flooding in that area I still think that I prefer the rain than the 100 degree plus weather that I hit the next day.

Ride home from San Diego was much nicer. The GSA handled everything perfectly except needing a battery in San Diego. Thankfully there was a Batteries Plus close by.

I need to change the oil and then I'm ready for more. It would be great to have a Ride To Eat sometime before weather gets cold.

All who wander are not lost!! Sounds like a great ride. I did 1000 miles in two days last week and had similar heat in SE Oregon. +1 on your comments about riding in rain vs. 100 degree heat. I'd trade, except for that Colorado rain!!

Re: Home

Sounds like a great ride. Glad to hear you are enjoying retirement and burning up tires and lots of fuel. Now if you could only talk John into retiring you guys could enjoy more rides together. Yes we do need to plan an ride to eat soon. Just say when and the masses will come.

Brian and I made the trip down to Ft Bragg and back, we also found our share of rain. Out of the 2100 miles over three and half day we spent 600 or so miles in heavy down pour rain. Time flies when you on the road, now it's Monday and her I sit at work again.
