Where's DnvrFox?

Anyone know?

Last I remember he was going to be in California for a few days, but that seems like a while ago.

Right now he is in Fort Bragg, CA!

To return the 26th.

Having a great time.

Thanks for checking. Without my computer, internet access has been skimpy, to say the least. There was some at the Westin, st Francis is San Francisco, but they wanted $40 per hour. No thanks.

I am now at a Quality Inn with free Internet access.

I hope you find time to do some riding in CA. From the pictures that have been posted lately they have some beautiful places to ride!

My wife and I rode at Stanford, but besides that, no. Nora is not happy about riding unfamiliar styles of bikes.

However, we have done some gorgeous walks and hikes along the ocean. It is gorgeous.

Wait a minute, wasn't Nora just starting to recover just a few months ago? This trip must be sweet for you both.

Pics?

She is walking up to 2 miles now.

This morning, on my early morning walk, I discovered a wonderful trail (boardwalk) out over the grasses to a "seal watching" place - Point Laguna. Very rugged, cold and windy - we both love that.

Also, a 1.5 mile board walk and trail around a small lake (pond?). We will do both today.

Temp is about 48F to a hhigh of 55F, winds from the northwest (off of the ocean) at 15-20 mph. Ocean temp is 52F.

No pics - didn't bring my card reader to plug into the USB.

While you're in Fort Bragg there's a very nice hiking spot at the foot of the trail to the Pygmy Forest. The hike to the forest itself is probably a little more than you want (5 or 6 miles round trip IIRC) but there's a really nice beach in a cove very close to the parking lot and lots of nice little loops out toward the coastline.

15-20mph winds would ruin riding for me!!! I hope you folks have a great trip!!

Hey Denver,

Best wishes to you and Nora. I love Fort Bragg -- we had our family reunion last summer in Cleone (Greek for "gracious and beautiful."

All the best,

John
