A note about the future of this blog. The post for the last day of the trip is in the queue, and some photo posts are coming up. The blog isn't done, though, as we'll still have more bike adventures; there will probably be a trip out to Denton, NC, next month, and various other … Continue reading Don’t touch that dial!
We started the day with an early lunch at a classic drive-in in Huntington, West Virgina, then got on the road. The ride was uneventful, but I did have a surprise for Angela - stopping at a yarn shop in Meadows of Dan, Virginia. During the ride Blue Bird rolled over 64,000 miles. That's 55,200 … Continue reading The End, Act I

I loved the ride up Black Rd to Skyline, but Angela didn't. It's full of sharp turns and not much fun when towing a trailer. Skyline was … Continue reading So long Santa Cruz, we’re heading home.
The situation is this: I forgot either cable that would let us get the photos off our DSLRs, so they're going to be downloaded, processed, and posted once we get home.
Friday we checked out of the hotel in SC. I had a consultation in San Mateo. Afterwards, we met a friend at Pizzaria Delpfina in Burlingame, then went over the hill to the coast and rode down to Santa Cruz, where we decided to spend the night. This was a tiring but wonderful day, and … Continue reading San Carlos to Santa Cruz
