Man, I really need to get back down to Louisiana. Thanks for the crawfish education, I love those little boogers. A most excellent report!

Ara, I am already designing next year's shirt...it will have a nice drawing of Spirit, with a caption that says "SPIRIT RULES!" and he will be jumping out of a sidecar. Maybe he should get a cape...

And we are moving on to... Texas!

It is a “commute” day for us... not a long one as I need to regroup and decide where I will make home for a while... Your comments, you should know, are always appreciated. And also... while in an area maybe interesting to you, if needing any information, just let me know.
I will be happy to look it up... let me be your... traveling agent! I would say us... but Spirit is turning out to be a lazy bum on this Journey...
Someone has to do it!... and write about it... this is your own backyard, accessible... right under your nose, no Oceans to cross, we all speak the same language, the food is good, the water drinkable... and how can you not love your... ATM!
Lets see what you think after reading about it...

A restful Sunday...

So why would someone rests on a Sunday?... because they can... because the winds blew me everywhere but where I pointed my nose at... because it got colder and colder going north...
And the fact that, hopefully there will be a tomorrow... Of course I can always say that Spirit was cold... made me turn around...and that would be it for my Blog but there is a bit more... but lets not always blame the lazy bum!... he makes up for it with his personality... and his great companionship, he is a good listener, always agrees and low maintenance!
Should be in San Antonio tonight... I repeat... Texas is huge!!!
And then I found out the weather for Big Bend for Friday night... might need some Gerbings for the rig...


Till then... Ara & Spirit

Parked in San Antonio...

Parked in San Antonio since yesterday... going to sightsee for a while and find some good Tamales!... the Riverwalk... anything else?
How do I manage to meet such great people?... How can my Karma be so good and so kind to my present life?... I must have lived right I guess... I can just imagine... trust me when I say “don’t let the few bad seeds of our society give you the wrong impression about human kindness”.
One always needs to be planted firmly on their two feet... but what a lift it is when one similarly meets good hearted people that open the doors to their home and heart!
Spirit had a blast yesterday playing with a buddy!... over one acre fenced was his playground... can this dog run or can he run!... He is so much in my care that it felt so great to see him have a good time! Such a shame that Pits have such a bad rap... it is slowly I think changing however... punish the owners... not the breed!...
On my way to discover the town... and make preparations for Big Bend...

Be well... have a great day...

Ara & Spirit

Love the pics and the report.....spirit looks like every sweet, goofy pit I've ever known.

just curious, have you had to tailor any travel plans to avoid places with breed specific bans? Some of the authorities in these places can be pretty narrow minded and heartless.

Hi Ara and Spirit

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your trip planning mind-melt and now the fruits of your efforts.

I crossed pathes with these Pennsylvania folks in Dawson Creek. I have no idea what is required for Spirit to cross the Canadian border but the proof is in the pudding!

Look forward to more of your adventures under the stars ...

Ara....

Im glad to see you started posting some of your exploits over here. I have been trying to keep up with things on your website also. Let me know if you plan on doing any more time in Arkansas (spring maybe?). Bills cabin on the White River is almost done...might be cool as a home base for a few days.
Enjoy yourself!
Seth

A bit too Urban... but nice.

Some riding yesterday... urban riding... amongst the city traffic... the stop and go and engine overheating surrounded with the fumes of freshly lay out tar... Somehow one has to sacrifice sometimes the comfort to be able to witness what some cities have to offer on an historical view point, touristic... it is after all a Holiday season... at the height of its commercialism and lights...
It was a great day, a full day... ending with a with a great culinary experience, a kind of food I am fond of... report on the Blog with pictures...
Tomorrow morning we will be leaving... yes... I know, I have been saying that for days... but it is true...



Enjoy... stay aboard... and be well...

Ara & Spirit
