3K miles ride to CCR about to begin. Leaving 0-dark thirty Sunday morning for CCR via OR, WA, BC, MT, to SD. We’ll be visiting a few National Parks along the way including Jasper & Glacier. We’re planning on arriving Monday night. We may never get there if old gal doesn’t stop finding places to stop along the way so she can see and take photos. I’ve had to stop just so she could take a picture of an old falling down barn in the middle of a field before. I hope the 8 days I have allowed to get there is enough time! I’m doing the final touches to get the bike ready while my bride is stacking clothes & stuff to take with us and to ship to the Ramkota Hotel. Her stacks keep getting bigger. I’ve been reminding her we’re going on a bike and not a Hummer. If any of you see an overloaded LT in route say hello but don’t stop or I’ll try and convince you to take some of our stuff with you. Of course, we may be divorced before then. We go through this every time before a trip but by the time we leave we’ll work things out and will be all smiles. I can’t wait till we get out of the SoCal desert and the 110 degree temperatures. I’m so longing forward to riding on the coast and in the mountains. Again, thanks to the CCR staff for giving us the required excuse to do what we love – ride!
