We arrived at daughter Cheri and s-i-l Lee's house on Thursday around noon-thirty. Both were home on lunch hour and helped us park in their driveway. After parking and plugging in, I hooked up the pressure washer and gave the bus a much needed wash. We had quite a lot of rain between Elko and Green River. As a matter of fact, the salt flats had standing water 3 or 4 inches deep. No racing at Bonneville anytime soon.
Friday I spent the day fishing on the Roaring Fork River with a guide friend of mine, Glenn Melus. We caught and released some nice trout. Janet and Cheri went for a massage and then made a Costco run. Poor Lee was at the office all day. Pity!!
Saturday Glenwood Springs held their annual Strawberry Festival. Main street is closed and they have a small parade and vendors set up booths in the city park. We rode the bikes down and spent a couple of hours there. Saturday was also Cheri's birthday and that afternoon some friends came over to the house for burgers and beer. Just a couple of blocks from the house, Bicycle Ride of Colorado started at an elementary school. There are1700 riders taking part in the race/ride, some 513 miles in seven days. The race begins and ends in Glenwood this year. Thunder boomers came up the canyon about midnight and it rained pretty hard.
Sunday Lee and I worked on a project together. We made a portable picnic table that they can take camping. It really turned out nice. After a quick shower and shave, the four of us went out for a Fathers Day dinner. We'll meet up with Lee and Cheri a little later in our journey. Lee's folks live in New Hampshire and we'll be there Aug. 11 for a visit.
The adventure really begins now, as we head for new places. The bus will not stay in one place very long.
Bye for now,
