I wasn't sure that I even wanted to make this trip. Six weeks on a motorcycle??? My non-biker friends were taking bets as to how long it would take before I booked a flight home. Well I not only surprised them, but I surprised myself as well.
This trip was more than I could have ever imagined...jaw dropping scenery, mouth watering local food, and local people who made you proud to be an American.
The experiences taught me that I am one tough grandma. I can not only survive extreme heat, sleet, high altitudes and "numb bum", I can laugh about them over a beer with my friends that evening. It doesn't matter if I have dirt on my face, or if I wear the same clothes for 3 days (underwear does not apply!).
Things I should have left at home...
- curling iron
- makeup (what in the world was I thinking???)
- tennis shoes
- white sweatshirt (never came clean)
I am really disappointed that our trip came to an early end because of our accident. I am, however, really grateful that our injuries were not more serious.
Thank you Mike & Judy for sharing all of this with us.
