40,000 bikers and 1 rug

Huh? Yeah, the title refers to my Sunday. After waking up at 5:15am because the crazy alarm clock in our hotel room was somehow set, I putzed online, talked to mom for an hour (boy did I scare her when I called at 6:15 my time), and then convinced NavyGuy that we should continue our […]

For all of you who have called or sent well wishes, we have arrived in Anacortes, WA, and it was great to get your texts and voice mails. (As I’ve been traveling through cell-phone-reception-less-zones for the […]
