The Plan

Our original plan was to fly to Holland, leave the kids with Grandma, and tour the Alps on a rented bike. The plan was affected by several economic factors. I purchased the 990 this year, We were bidding on another house with property, and airline tickets (we needed 4) were very pricey. We decided to keep the money in savings. I was a little bummed to abandon this plan, but I know I will someday get the opportunity to tour the Alps.

Hel did agree to a motorcycle tour though...

So why not visit California's Trinity Alps instead? Last year when I did a big solo tour of Western North America I really enjoyed the ride in California, and found myself wishing I could share some of this with my wife. So I hatched a plan to lap California at a much more leisurely pace than I am accustomed to.

The planned route looked a little like this. About 3200 miles in 10 days.

Not everything goes as planned though........
