Are We There Yet!!!

Here it is, the night before we leave..........I can't stand it. I have tons of work to do at Tweeter, yet I can't wait to get on the road. I love road trips! Nothing like seeing new things, eating in new places and just being out on the road. I missed my calling. I should buy a big rig and long haul for a living!

Everything is packed..." A place for everything, and everything in it's place".....The bike is ready, and as soon as I finish my budgets at work and take in one more meeting tomorrow, we're on the road. I'm going to spend the night at Bob's house in Western Mass and get a good start early Thursday AM...........

Something that I hadn't really thought about, is that we will be traveling up through Canada during the 4th of July holiday.......Now I know it isn't a holiday in Canada, but I hope we don't have a difficult time getting camping sites during this coming week......We'll see.

So that's it...wish us luck. The next report will come from the road!

Ride safe and enjoy. A couple of us are riding vicariously through you two; we're planning a trip up that way next year. You're our dry run! :)
