Hello! I am in California

Hello, hello!  getting on the internet and posting on my blog has been more of a challenge then I had anticipated.  But I have been trying to post on facebook to keep family and friends up to where I am.

In short we left and drove to Shrevesport, LA.  We stayed there for 4 days and left the morning of the 5th day.  We drove to Witchita Falls, TX, then to Alburquerqure, NM.  We stayed there 2 days and did a day trip ride up to Santa Fe and Taos.  We drove about 325 miles on that day trip and were able to ride part of the Enchanted trail.  We rode across the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge and saw so many wonderful things.

From Alburquerque we headed to Flagstaff for 2 days.  Did another day trip up to the south rim of the grand canyon.  We started at the east end and drove around the south side of the canyon to the west end, then back into old town Flagstaff.  From Flagstaff we made a stop in Tehachapi, CA and then onto Galt,CA where we have been ever since.

We are staying at Bug's parents home which is in the greater bay area.  From here we have done day trips to Lake Tahoe, San Francisco and Yosemite National Park.  We have taken other trips just around this area where Bug has lived and seen so many wonderful things.  Tomorrow we will head to Sacramento and then Monday we will get back on the bike and head to Nappa where we plan on camping and doing some wine tours. 

I am able to get on Facebook easier then I can into my blog, so if you are interested in keeping up with cross country tour, visit me at Facebook.  When we get home at the end of the month, I will post blogs of the trip so I can add more details.  I do not want to forget this most amazing adventure of my life.

We have travelled more then 3500 miles, especially when you add in car and train trips.  We are about half way through the trip and will probably cover as many miles as we have already driven.

It is hard, I guess.  It has been so hot at times, and other times I have already had to wear everything I brought.  I have named my two hip bones that press into the seat, the Filmore twins because I can feel more of the seat then anyone should.  But nothing has been hard enough to regret the decision to do this.  We are having such an amazing and wonderful time.  I am loving this more then I could ever express.

More later, if I can get on the internet, otherwise, I will keep posting on Facebook, just so I don't forget too much.  We are doing so many  things, there is no way I will ever be able to remember it all. 

life is amazing and cancer, whatever, it can't hold me back!
on to life
