A long delayed update...

I won't try and catch up on all our travels since I originally signed up for this blog site. The stories from our wandering across the US by VW van, the two months in New Zealand, the trips to SW Utah and Iceland, and the cruising by sailboat in Maine and the Bahamas will have to be related in person - or you can at least get the visual story from the photo page at my website, http://web.mac.com/steve_hoge .

Now Kate and I are embarking on a somewhat more ambitious, long term trip with our bicycles, beginning in Spain and onto Morocco and beyond. In the usual frenzied final weeks before leaving Boulder, we rebuilt our bikes, put our finances on computerized autopilot, got all of our shots (THREE weekly injections for a rabies vaccination?) closed up our basement apartment, and left the house in the capable hands of our upstairs tenants Jim and Carolyn.

Now we've got our cheap tickets on Aer Lingus to Malaga, Spain, the bikes are boxed-up (free carriage on the flight!) and soon the hint of an impending Rocky Mountain winter will be behind us. Stay tuned for the next installment!
