Busy, busy, busy
The last couple of weeks it seems like we have been riding, driving at every turn.
We flew to Spokane, WA and were picked up by the owner of the yellow Valkyrie trike and taken to Moses Lake - where we purchased the trike and stayed the night. If you are looking for a good place to eat Michael's is good.
It was an incredibly cold ride home. We left Mose Lake with temps below 50 degrees and I think the maximum was 55. We were in such a hurry I mistakenly agreed to forgo installing the wiring for our heated gear - stupid me! We ran into a mini blizzard in Crescent, Oregon but made it as far as Klamath Falls the first day. Thank heavens the Super 8 has a hot tub. The next day we waited until 10 a.m. to leave because it was once again below 50 degrees. By the time we rode to Weed, CA we were peeling off outer layers. Made it home safe, sound and reasonably warm.
We were home 4 days and headed for Coarsegold, CA for the brake upgrade on my trike. That was another 2 day adventure and chilly ride.
We now have 6 days to get ourselves organized before we leave for Nebraska and Wyoming.
