Day 1

Day 1

After we finally sort out our GPS issues, it's time to say goodbye to our lovin' families. That's my wife Jodie:

John's wife Leah, baby Nora, and the O Boy...Owen the Corgie.

Let's roll! Our thirst is for dirt, dust, and open spaces. City streets and refrigerators, we shall miss you.

To avoid I-25, we slab 285 for a few hours into Salida. First dirt marks the proper start of the adventure. Marshall Pass is first up on a list of many passes.

Colorado is a familiar landscape to us, but the riding was incredibly beautiful. I think we both came away from the trip feeling lucky to live where we live.

Avoiding one of many rain squalls

On a safety note, let me recommend riding and playing with your camera at the same time:
