After the avenue of the giants, between Leggett and Fort Brags, Valentino erased some of the chicken strips from the rubber. Indeed it was sweet.
Stopped in Santa Monica to visit a friend and
Sample local delicacies and enjoy some of the local culture
First anecdote of the trip:
Valentino walks into a gas station in Centralia, WA, this conversation with the young lady behind the counter ensues.
- Good morning sir!
- Good morning.
- Are you German?
- Huh… no
- Are you sure?
- Huh yes, I am Canadian
- Really! And you came all the way from Canada on your motorcycle.
- Yes, but British Columbia is only about three hours away from here.
- But it is so cold!
- Huh… well not really.
- Ok, if you say so. By the way I come from Alaska, but I live here now. - Bye bye have a good day now.
Just getting warmed up with the video cam set up. We will get better as we inch our way south. Tomorrow we party, Monday we recover, Tuesday we hit Douglas, AZ.
