So we left Vancouver yesterday morning, heading to the misterious South America.
It took us about an hour and a half to cross the border. And then another 2 hours to wait for our good friends, Traian and Razvan, who are pretty much going to do the same trip as us, but on a G-Wagon, and in half the time. We saw them right behind us, but it turned out they had the truck searched at the border, so it took a while.
We finally reunited, so we can part ways again. We will head to San Fran, for a couple of days, and they will head to Yellowstone National Park.
We will most likely meet again in Los Angeles, and cross the border together.
We had a great ride the first day. Nice twisties, beautiful weather, until we hit the mountains. It all changed in the evening, so the first night we camped in the pouring rain, at New Haven. We enjoyed it though: some Grand Marnier and Cyder warmed us up, and good friendship and company made a great evening.
Next day the weather looked a lot better, so we got up after very little sleep (too cold for me, so I could not really sleep much), and back in the saddle. Beautiful ride through Winthrop, and then we decided to stop in this little gorgeous Bavarian town called Leavenworth.
After having a delicious Bavarian sausage, and a very good glass of wine, we are ready for a good sleep, and then the next ride:)
And you know what? I realized I didn’t come all the way here for nothing. Suddenly, when I saw this little thing, it dawned on me:)
So this is not just a ride, it’s free therapy (well, free might not be the right word).
As we got back to our time share (I know, we got fancy this time:) Mat and Robin have “relations”) we just found an email from Razvan that they got stuck with the G-Wagon in Missoula. Something wrong with their transmission. They are waiting for parts to come from Vancouver. Hopefully they will still catch up so we can meet in Los Angeles.
