Sure, we'll be right there.... in about 5 hours (after we finish breakfast, change into our bike clothes, check the bikes, load 'em on the hitch, and drive down there). Just sayin' ...

Hey what are we doing at the computer on a nice day like this anyway????????

Why don't you all stop by for some pie when you finish. Apple or rhubarb?

You're late!

If you had ridden yesterday, you could have rolled on over to Little Rock and finished off the day at Riverfest. We would have provided your bike with attended parking for free and you could have seen ZZ Top followed with a great fireworks show.

I've already been on a 32 mile ride this morning Had you joined us you could have helped clear a path through this mess. We called the park rangers and they sent a maintenance crew to clean it up.

Not on Asphalt- If they made a mess of it- they would not have a soft landing.

Yep... great trip! Stopped at Cannon Beach which was one of the highlights! Now we're glad to be here, and just waiting to move across the street in a couple of weeks.

I'd like to ride, but the sky is leaking, the wind is blowing, and I'm a wimp! Tell me again why I live in Northern Utah?

Good to hear. One of my "dream" trips (I have many, of course) is to do that trip by bike...
