The trip begins....slowly

I left TorC about 9 am yesterday and am now in Durango where I will hang with Kit and take of my honey-do list.

I may be here a week or two but don't know how I will do that long with the elevation...I usually only stay here a week.

Everything is going well with the rig and usually the first day tells the story....

One pesky little development is that my GPS is giving me not turning on when I need it....not good and I will make some effort to correct the problem or will leave it here in DGO...

I realized I  forgot an item or two and that I left the A/C turned on in the TorC house. I will ask a friend to take care of the A/C  but the forgotten items I can't do anything about...s'ok!

More as it happens....

To hell with the little Stanley thermos! It is too much hassle for too little gain....

I instead will stop in stores and buy things like RiceSides that make two meals out of each package for me with a little canned or dried meat of some kind...summer sausage or foil packed Spam slice...maybe tuna fish or Chinese dried, shredded pork. Hey, we live in America where there is at least one food store in every town.

That's all, just got that out of the less thing to carry...

The call of the road....

I am sneaking up to a leave date for a summer on the rig up to and around the PNW...

The bike is in good shape. My camp is sorted out and I am now taking care of the things around the property that need doing so I can leave it with a good feeling. I just finished up the yard and now it is the painting that needs doing....

When it feels like time to leave, I'll ride up to visit with my sweetie in between her job demands, take care of some honey-dos, have a couple of days with Kit to enjoy ourselves and then head west....

I will try to keep up on the blog and get some photos on it as I go...still trying to decide on which computer to take....the old "boat anchor" that has everything on it and is easy to use, or the  netbook with Ubuntu that is light and small and that I have about zero skills's a toss up.

I will try the netbook out for blogging and see how it works for that before deciding. I would really like to take it instead of my older Compaq.

I have been messing around with a 16 ounce wide-mouth thermos for cooking brown rice on the road...I think I have it worked out for short grain brown rice and if, after a couple more tries, I feel good about it, I'll take it along so I can have freshly cooked rice meals.

That's about it....stay well and happy trails,
