I stopped a lot to call my wife Marcia,
I was missing her a lot by this time and she had been sick the past couple days, so that would play a big part in my decisions later that day.
I rode up to Santa Barbra where I called Marcia again. I was not enjoying myself as much as I thought I would, and I know the reason was because Marcia was not with me to enjoy it too. So I decided to head home and come back when Marcia could come too.
We had plans for a vacation in late Oct, but I knew it would be too cold for Marcia and myself to be riding a motorcycle up the coast to Washington, (or Alaska) And I had promised my dad I would take him to see his brother in Tucson AZ. So our plans for a motorcycle ride up,(or down) the left coast has been put off until next year, or the year after.
We will be spending our 14th aniversary somewhere in AZ, or maybe CA. The only plans that we have so far is Fly into Phoenix on the 24th/25th of Oct. Rent a car and take my dad to Tucson. Then back to Phoenix on the 26th for the Allen Jackson concert at the AZ State fair.
What we do from the 27th until we get back on the plane on the 2nd of Nov is up in the air. Marcia has never been west of Alabama so the Grand Canyon is almost a must see for her. ( I have been there and done that) ( but not with her) So it will be a pleasure to see it again with my wife.
Our aniversary is the 29th so I'll be looking for something romantic for that day/night. Marcia dose NOT like cold weather, so I'm thinking we might head south, or maybe southwest after a visit to the Canyon.
My plans when I left the left coast was to buy a van to haul us all three out there pulling a wee-Strom for Marcia and I to ride up the coast. But I didn't get the van and time restrictions caused us to fly and rent a car. I did get the wee-Strom. Laughing
