    Waiting out a downpour, but we'll be leaving shortly on a 2,400 mile loop consisting of Hwy. 395 north from here in SoCal to Carson City, Nevada, then Hwy. 50 "The loneliest Road in America" across Nevada (3 towns in nearly 400 miles) and Utah into Colorado. Then down to new Albuquerque, New mexico and back to Cali via Rt. 66.



    That is, if the weather changes. If not we'll flip a coin in Barstow this afternoon and do the trip counterclockwise.



    Our nuptials were yesterday, with our own JS5Owner presiding. All present stated that his was without question the most spiritual, personal and meaningful ceremony they had ever attended.



    Thanks Jeff. We love you.

    Good luck and have fun on the Turtle Tour 2,400. Also, congratulations on your marriage! Hope you have plenty of stories, all good ones, to tell us upon your return.

    Congratulations and travel safely. Sorry I'm not going to be in NM when you come through. I could leave the key under the door mat, but then again its the trip not the destination that is important. Me, I'll be pedal biking through the humidity and rain of the NE US and maritime provinces of Canada, and perhaps pining for a 200 cc motor and the sunshine of RT. 66 etc. Tom

    Well, we're doing it backwards, which due to fluke weather is only marginally better than going the way we'd intended. Slightly less rain, cold and snow.



    Whodathunk the west end of 66 would be this cold in May?

    Lizrdbrth, I'm not leaving for about a week or 8 days so if you get close to Albuquerque by the the 22 or so, give me a call so I can buy the couple a couple of plates of New Mexico Red Chile Chicken Enchiladas, and or offer other available hospitality (lodging if it works). 505 859-0593 or 861-5365. It would be nice to hook up. Tom
