Everything is finally out of our Tahoe rental home…damn, and just when we finally acclimatized! I have packed a change of clothes and toiletries to leave in the truck for easy access when we eventually return? By the time everything was sorted it was a full on, packed, 12 hour day….we still had a lot fiddly, button-up projects for the bikes planned for the evening that may not get done. We had dinner and visited with Kevin's parents, returned to their home and fitted my new communication system into my new helmet while watching a movie. Not exactly interactive quality time. Unfortunately, having the bikes out of our reach, although fortunate that they were out of the snow and ice for the last several weeks had complicated and compromised our tweaking timeline. Not to be confused with twerking!…ha ha ha
We wake early to fiddle with the bikes, but can't do it without a coffee….today is the day!
Our son Christopher traveled up to collect a few household items we packed up that would make his life easier…..a vacuum, microwave, our left over cleaning supplies and food! It was fantastic having him see our final preparations and then follow us to visit our dear Uncle Frank. Frank, I am disappointed that we didn't get a picture of us all looking at the bikes…but I'm going to hold you to that dance! We filled up the bikes and Christopher's car…what are parents for, hey….then hit the road. We really had not figured out exactly what road to take, we just wanted to get going before the sun set. Finally, we hit the freeway. The bikes are very heavy, very efficiently packed and running beautifully. Yes we do need to get a new battery for Kev's bike…that will be the first stop on the list! Christopher…was that you on the freeway?…..NICE!…Love you heaps Tiger!
Ok… so how long is it from Roseville California to Manteca California???? 73.9 miles. We are out of the congested traffic, the sun is setting, time to call it a day!
Woo Hoo Hoo….we are back on the road!….Ya Ya hoo!
