First Day full of questions

Should we go east (there was rain)? ... Or, west (we almost headed back to California)? ... Or, south (there was no rain)? We went South and ended up in Indianapolis. Nice town. But, when we got here I wanted to ask five questions: 1) For Al Gore - can you go home and get mine and Robin's chaps? We thought there was a global warming crisis so we left ours home ... moron! 2) For Harley and Davidson - how can you make a machine that rides that good, looks this nice and still have an endless amount of chrome available to buy? What a great ride we had on a smooth bike! 3) For the Governor of Indiana - don't you know there is an economic crisis happening? We saw more officers today than we saw in 30 days to the west coast. (The bad news was that there were so many; the good news was we didn't personally meet any of them). 4.) For Robin - why do you love me? I put you on the back of the bike and ride and you just follow me ... I love you!!! 5). God - Why do you put up with Al Gore? How did you get those ideas into Harley and Davidson? How did you get me to slow down under that bridge back on 31 near Carmel ... and just in time!! How did you make a women like Robin and make her so blind to still pick me?

Great day - 250 miles - great fun.

New Adventure Countdown

Go east young man, go east! We know that is not how the saying goes but we already went west in "08 so why not go east in '09. So, Tuesday, June 30, we head south to Gatlinburg, Tn and then east to Mrytle Beach, SC. But, you can only go east for so long. So, after MB we will be heading north ... way, way, way north ... Maine north. On the way to Bay Harbor, Maine, we have scheduled stops at Washington D.C., Philadelphia, New York City and all the little towns in between. We invite you to travel with us. This is a "working vaction" as we will be riding in the mornings, writing in the afternoons, again, and resting in the evening. So, the trip begins ... first stop ... actually we haven't decided that. So, we will let you know on Tuesday when we get there. All we know is it won't be in Michigan.
