Since you are in LA, have you found an agent yet for your motivational public speaking career? Use those connections! You have the gift, my friend, you have the story... go for it!

Mark, are you coming back down to San Diego? After just missing you (by a day) in Julian for apple pie, I don't want to miss you again!
If you are coming here you are welcome for dinner and a place to stay.

I see the temps in Portland are going to be in the teens this week! Wife and I were up there 2 weeks ago and it was in the low 30's, cold for us So Cal folk!
But it sure is a beautiful area. We did the Columbia River Gorge trip and then over to Cannon Beach for a few days of R&R. I kept saying how I'd love to be on my mc up here, the roads are beautiful, and so well maintained, the bridges and overpasses done with great style. The only thing I'd have to get used to is the rain. It hardly ever rains down here.

23 degrees here in Eugene right now, that qualifies as brutal in my book.

Radioman, if you can't quite push to PDX and need a spot to rack out here, got a place here for you, garage and room. Else will see you on 1/17/04 up north.

Cheerio and safe travels

Sorry BoxerPaul, I will have to take a "raincheck", as I am already back up in LA now and riding North starting today.Thanks so much for the offer! I'm not hurrying, but will make my way back to Portland for mid December. As long as it is not snowing!

As I rolled back in to Los Angeles, I found my way to Scubalongs Home. He captured me upon arrival!!



Was great to pull into Long's Garage and park next to his other Motorcycles



Had a wonderful meal at one of their local restaurants!



Was so great to meet Long and Monique, and they shared some of their Vietnamese, Culture, food and Hospitality!



:gd Food was yummy, and talk of riding in Vietnam and SE Asia was great also...... Hummmm



Then a tour around Little Siagon. Long seems to look to serious....He is so tall


Worth a jump.... Night Jump!



Standing Next to the statues of Wisdom and Luck? I think!



Once again, I had a great afternoon, evening and morning talking with Long and Monique. What a Pleasure! But then it was time to get back on the road, and ride up to Venice to meet up with Jibby, before riding up PCH.

More great people in the ADV community!! Fantastic!

The weather in cold up north as a winter cold streak comes in..... Still working my way north but trying to avoid the rains : (I know, I am going north at the worst possible time... But will be back in PNW for Christmas).

5 Solid lanes of traffic...... as I work my way north.... Welcome to LA
But the sun is shining and I am enjoying the ride
