    The BIG BIG trees of Ca... and a cup of coffee...

    [​IMG]


    The BIG BIG trees in CA... and a cup of coffee!

    Moving means busy... I get particular as to where we camp and sometimes it is not too easy finding the right spot. And then there is cooking, riding and exploring, Spirit and our playtime,

    you know such things are laundry and Murphy’s law to always fix the unpredictable...

    I would not trade my days anymore for anything you could offer me to replace these times...

    Including today’s ride to Sequoia amongst the BIG trees... they are huge!... and always wondered... why there?

    The first part is already on the Blog... with the story of a cup of coffee... beware!

    You be well... part two will follow very shortly... we are moving again tomorrow... for a week or so... it will be a bit more permanent... like a week?

    Be well...

    Rain or shine we ride... in CA.

    [​IMG]

    Rain or shine we ride!!!... CA.

    The worse detriment in our Journey is bad weather. We have been lucky... I cannot take the credit that I follow sunshine throughout as we have had bad surprises... from actually lack of forgetting to check the weather sites! Today started heavily forecasted... but it did not keep us down...

    Too many roads and sites to see... even if it is a short loop we were out there...

    Nice roads... nice scenery... California does not cease to amaze me... unfortunately the prices of goods also take me a bit back...

    Our day... and some of the past day on our Blog... in great colors of Spring.

    You all be well... have a great weekend...

    Under the clear skies of California.

    Thanks 14rock...

    Under the clear skies of California...

    The skies are finally clear... Sequoia and Yosemite are waiting for us, but there are clouds of pain within me! A kidney infection... stones perhaps also... have managed to make their way since yesterday...

    Already on medication... awaiting for all this to end... soon I hope... still took a chance for a little ride and mingle with some friends for some great food and conversations. Might have been a slight judgement error as now I am paying even a higher price for that escapade... but the road... at least half of it was worth it and so was the scenery as written on the Blog...

    Karma has been good as you might read about it... and as always my thoughts are... so many have it so much worse. This too shall pass...

    Till later... be well... I am trying myself to go there!!!

    On to the Gold Country of CA...

    [​IMG]

    On to the Gold Country... CA.

    Maybe a couple hundred miles further north tonight, I don’t keep much track of mileage truly.

    More important are the roads traveled, the scenery and the feel of it.

    Past Pioneer on 88... ahead of the riders coming up for the Pashnit Gathering and feeling very fortunate to be allowed to stay here. Beautiful country... much luscious green trees... great weather which I hope holds up for everyone else.

    The route is on the Blog and so are a few other pictures...

    Be well...

    Do you believe... again!!! Lake Tahoe

    [​IMG]


    Do you believe it?... again! Lake Tahoe

    At least, again, we did not crash... You must be getting used to this... anyone would like to by a used hack???... Look at it this way... every time something breaks, only 5 times however by now,

    it is fixed better... stronger... OK... Maybe you want to wait a little longer, we are getting near completion... not much left that could break... This was a fabricator part by the way...

    Besides that, the ride was just fantastic... 88/89 to Lake Tahoe at this time of the year must be the best... cool, just right temps, the roads are dry and open, even Tioga pass is opening tomorrow at noon!

    Want to see some pictures... see what happened?... The Blog is up to date...

    Smugmug was down for maintenance last night, could not post the pictures and that is OK too...

    They are the best in the business...

    You be well...

    A Great time at the Pashnit Gathering... CA.

    A Great time at the Pashnit gathering... CA

    This will be one of those memorable weekend... no doubt about it. Great people making us feel so welcomed, a family oriented gathering, nice to see and feel the togetherness, the friendships, the camaraderie... good food (at least I hope it truly was Friday night too...). The names will surface as we would love to come back next year.

    I still need to have a square piece of metal, which a bolt goes through, permanently repaired with a solid piece machined, drilled and welded... Waiting word from South Lake Tahoe... if not... will look into Sacramento or Stockton... I just got word that this man does not have a drill press...

    It will all work out... as it normally does.

    Simply Spectacular Views... CA

    You might be surprised at my Spectacular views of today... but I see them... and hope that you do to.

    The rig is fixed and more... another bracket broke while there and being removed... Ah! I am so glad that I bought the "heavy duty" mounts... You might have had to send me flowers instead of reading this!

    A ride to Yosemite coming up... I am ready... we are ready... I even took a night ride to the adjacent campground!... Make sure that my seven headlights are working... all is fine.

    Check it out in the Blog...

    Lots of "WOW"... Yosemite, CA.

    [​IMG]


    Lots of "WOWS"... Yosemite, CA.

    Why did it take 18 hours from camp to Yosemite and back??? I am still wondering in amazement...

    Great company... too many pictures taken... incredible roads and tired eyes from all the witnessed wonders.

    Is there ever any bad weather here?... Perfect.

    We are laying low today... real low! Getting ready to move to Cupertino tomorrow putting us closer to SF... and "that" will be a change for us. Are we going to do the tourist thing?... will see.

    But Yosemite, part I anyhow, the start... is in the Blog...

    A day in San Francisco... CA.

    A day in San Francisco... CA.

    With well chosen hours the traffic was light, with clear skies and hardly any haze blown away by the winds, it was however an emotional day to go back into San Francisco... It has been over three years...

    The City had put on its best composure yesterday, helping out for clear pictures... and some narrative which are up now on the Blog.

    A loop through Santa Cruz... CA

    [​IMG]


    A loop through Santa Cruz... CA.

    More upper body workout on the rig today... sweepers, curves, tight curves... hair pins...

    California has it in abundance and more! Some great blue skies... some wet and cold fog... I am learning to add and subtract clothing in a heartbeat... Every few mile has is own weather pattern!

    Considering Santa Cruz was not too far... I am not exaggerating!

    It was great ride, with a new tire on the sidecar and disc brake functioning close to perfection all day... (that is another story... for another day...), what more can one ask...

    More of it on the Blog...

    Till next time...

    You be well...

    Locke, old town of the Delta... CA

    [​IMG]


    Locke, an old Chinese Delta town, and some new friends… CA

    One of course never realize the importance of anything till, in this case, they are about to loose it!… my old faithful lap top! So we have gone through the motions of moving every thing over… a new one, not an easy task… even for me watching my good friend Brian doing his “magic”.

    Windows Vista?… Like taming a new wild animal… to say the least!

    And a ride in a very interesting little and old Chinese town… I met some people that keep going back as if magnetized by its “space”.

    Many pictures of the town, bumping into a rider with who I had corresponded… (what would be the chances!!!)

    This new laptop is like a stiff pair of new shoes!… it is all on the Blog however…

    Till then…

    Be well…
