Mark, I was in Washington a couple of weeks ago. It's a beautiful state. We were over on the coast around Kalalock area of the Olympic NP. Then I had to drop ,my wife off at SeaTac airport so she could go home to work. I then headed up to the Upper Cascades National Forrest and camped there too before heading off to Yellowstone. I was hoping to run into you somewhere along the way.......just didn't happen though. Keep up the adventure. Jack

T MINUS 5 days....

My time back in the USA is coming to a rapid close. Have had a good time being home, seeing friends and family and getting some projects done, but I am ready to get back to South America so I can keep riding to Tierra Del Fuego and beyond.

As I continue this journey I am learning and watching technology evolve. As a marketing tool in the US you now see lots of square barcodes appearing on signs, packaging etc. It is a way to share web sites for information.

To stay current, I created one that links to my own Blog which is a double post of my Ride Report for non advriders. if you have a scan app on your phone this will take you to it.....



and I also decided to make some sticker made up for my ride..... They will be ready Monday!



Last weekend I was up on Whidbey and had the pleasure of meeting and Hosting GuateRider and his wife on there return ride from Alaska!!

Here is his Ride Report

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=765375



Since it is the last part of summer ....... I had Julio help me pick some Blackberries....



Something he has not seen or done in Guatemala.



We took a Blackberry Pie to the community Potluck meal. Funny, but by the time we finished eating the pie was gone so we did not get to have any

Had a great evening together!





Great Sunset!



Sunday we rode into Langley to check it out.



Had to park next to some Harley Riders.



I had the chance to meet up for Lunch with some High School Buddy that I had not seen in many years! Great to see you John and Mo!



Then back to our House to relax! Beautiful Pacific NW!



Had another great evening with Julio and Luisa!! Lots of conversation about Life, Riding, Travel, Family and Politics!



Monday Morning Julio and Luisa packed up and headed out to the Olympic Pennisula!!



Off they go!! Safe Travels to you!



Then I rode into Seattle to see a childhood friend and his family. Lucy could not wait to get on the bike for a photo.



Her Mom told me a few days before Lucy told her; "I want to have a motorcycle" (wonder where she got that from ) another young ADVrider in the making

So Lucy and I practiced the "Radioman jump"......





Wahooo!




With My childhood Friend Steve!! Had a great childhood, and still keep in touch with the "neighbor kids"



Lucy and Her mom taking a couple photos.






Then to Downtown Seattle to meet up with SGTMIKE and his family for a spot of lunch!!





Then Dinner with another High School Friend and her Brother who lives in Thailand and rides a moto!! Bummer.... we were sharing storry and videos and did not snap any photos But had a great evening!

Now I am on the final days of my time. I am with Family friends in Eastern Oregon for their sons wedding on Saturday. Then home for one day to wrap up my packing and storage of other cloths and gear I have been using while back home.

As it normally is when you start out on a new part of a journey into the unknown. There is a bit on anxiety, fear, excitement and many details flying all around my brain. Know this is normal for me, and once I get back to Quito and get my bike back up and running..... things will settle down.

Stay tuned as I will get back into a groove of posting regularly as I start riding south from Ecuador to Ushaia. !

Wow, where to start? I discovered your threads a few weeks ago and have been reading through them ever since. Your journey thus far has been very inspiring and thought provoking. I have been sharing your story with my family as I went along and we are all touched by your "Fatih, Hope, and Courage".

Your story has made me much more aware of what Alzheimer's is and how it will affect all of us, either directly or indirectly. I am deeply sorry for your loss and am thankful that you are brave enough to share it with others.

Travel safe and thanks for taking us with you!

Dear Chris. Thanks so much for the post and comment. I appreciate the time you have taken to read my story and see why I have shared it. I take it as a complement that my "Ride Report" is worthy of sharing with your family, and know that I would not have done this without my "Fatih, Hope, and Courage".

We all have life stories and hopefully we can learn from others, share in the difficulties, sadness, loss as well as the successes, joy and adventures!

I will keep posting, especially knowing others are able to ride along with me.

Thanks for the encouraging Post!!
