disconnected the batteries,



and wedged the bikes in.

We checked out of

the hotel, and spent the day with Lisa, eating our way along Seattle's waterfront. I actually tried my hand at iMovie, and put together something a little more polished than the raw clips I've been foisting upon the world to this point... so, I give you:

Topped things off

with a visit to REI, and a cuppa joe.







It was a great way to ease ourselves back into polite society.

Lisa was kind

to offer to schlep us all the way back down to the airport even though it was totally in the wrong direction from her home.

Mount Rainier seemed to float above the earth:





We said our good-byes, and see-ya-laters...



but it was still three and a half hours before boarding.

Always a treat to follow your continuing adventure.

Let me know if I can assist with some fun GPS tracks through southern BC for Mobius V.

Funny you should mention that... 'cause at the airport, we were already starting to think about Mobius-V... and we saw a sign:



So I may just take you up on that offer.

We found a bar/restaurant, and spent some time eating, drinking, looking at tiny photos on the camera screens, recounting our adventure, and debriefing :



Finally, our flight left... non-stop this time.

It was still raining

in NYC, just like when we had left,



we made our way up a deserted Broadway the last two blocks on foot since the cabbie wouldn't drop us off north of Houston since it was in a different "zone" from the airport.



waiting outside our door was a package... Hey Roy... I have your case cover, and we owe you a new stator.



it was good to be home.

Guys, this trip has been a morning staple for me for quite some time. I've really enjoyed going along for the ride, watching the growth that has happened in both of you and also seeing the way you two communicate. It's fantastic.

Let me be the second to offer services in routing through southern BC. There's a ton to be experienced, with more than a few vistas along the way. Also, if you haven't already, www.dualsportbc.com is an excellent resource for finding routes through BC. We can help you out.

Travis

PS: I first heard of Sweetcheeks from this report. Since then, I recommended them to my Dad for his DRZ, and he rolled for 6K miles in booty comfort up to Inuvik, NWT, and back this summer.

Yeah, good to be home in the land of lazy bastard rip-off artists. Hope you saved the receipt and that passenger information tag they handed you on line at the airport. I'll be happy to help you make a complaint...
