Trip of a lifetime...
Have a wonderful trip...enjoy, remember and photograph everything. I am just a little scared at the prospect which is why you are the ones going and I am sipping tea and watching the adventure unfold! Take care. Mags. x

Nice to hear from you. Just crossed from Arizona into Utah. Its like being in a western movie all the time! The roads are all that I hoped they would be, and more. The bikes are all good so far, getting more used to them all the time, even fully loaded they don't feel much different. Hope all OK with you x

Hey there dudes...hows it hangin? I am not too sure how the locals speak...come to think of it i don\'t even know who your locals are! Where are you? No...it\'s ok, I remember you are in America it\'s just I\'m not sure where? Well one thing is for sure and that is the weather will be sunny and hot in the US of A. Sadly not so here...still sod it all we\'re off to Crete next week - nice! Well you jolly duo, I trust all is well with the travelling game. Hope your tent hasn't been eaten by a coyote (is that right?) Stay safe and fairly sober...yes alright Jim - I said FAIRLY sober! Love Mags and Jim x

Nice to hear from you. Glad to hear you are off to foreign climes, it'll be lovely. Actually overcast here today, but still warm. Generally its been fantastic, but without whinging, it does get a little over the top in the heat with all the bike gear on - ho hum! Off to Bryce canyon tomorrow, hopefully early as its a first come first served campsite, historically not a great system for us, but we're getting better at getting up, but its still the distances we need to cover. Not that much drinking going on, you'll be surprised to hear. We're carrying some whisky for emergencies, but not touched any yet, well, not since Claremont anyway. Have a lovely trip. Love from us both x

I am hoping you will put some pictures of Mr Ranger on when you have them. It sounds amazing and good to hear you are getting comfortable with the bikes. Lucky things. Hope the jacket is doing its job. Still pretty cold here, annoyingly! Take care xx
17th May 2013

I will remember to take a piccie of Mr ranger when we get to jelly stone, but still a long way to go. We were warned against our preferred route tomorrow as it was still closed due to snow! Its all over extreme. Off out for a bite to eat for lunch. Take care x

Hello Intrepid Explorers
We are back from our little trip...how is the 'big' trip going? I'm not sure how to access photo's on this site. Have you posted many since the start of the journey? Well I guess all will be revealed in due course as they say. How did the camping go - very warm and whiskey inducing or not too bad and wonderful sunsets. Hope the latter; I captured a beautiful sunrise one perfect Cretian (that right?) morning...sunrise/sunset really do it for me! Well my lovlies I hope you are harnessing all the positive vibes winging your way via t'internet. I imagine a whole cohort, some known and some not, all living vicariously through your adventures. Ehhhhhhhhh, what wonderful memories! Take care, Love Mags and Jim. x

Hope your trip was lovely too, they go so fast. Even this one seems to be whizzing through at an alarming rate. Not sure how to explain on viewing the photos I've downloaded, I can only view them on my tablet, and I think they come up differently when I actually log on. I can only suggest trawling through it all. My sister has been viewing them, but I gather she has to start at the beginning each time and trawl through the blogs again, including a number of adverts, before she can find the latest ones. I don't know if that is any help. Must go and update it again. Lovely to hear from you xxxxx

Hello how are you getting on? Please tell me you didn't get caught up in any of the tornadoes? At last it is warmer here, who knows for how long. Still waiting for pictures on this site jiffer!! Take care both of you xx
4th June 2013

Photo probs
No tornadoes for us.....yet anyway! Sorry you haven,t been able to view the photos, there are lots there! You're not on your own having trouble viewing them, and I'm not sure what I can do other than suggest clicking on different things or working your way back through the blogs, maybe starting at the beginning again. Pick a day you're bored at work! Hope you're able to keep up with the rest. I thought of you the other day, as we rode past the end of a liitle road in the middle of Idaho called Pope Road!
