Friday December 13, 2013

Continued to ride up Northern California. Had to do the touristy thing and ride through a Big RedWood tree (it is the only one of the three that I had not stopped and done!!







The Redwoods are huge!






and of course a Photo at the Trees of Mystery ... Paul Banyon and ox.



Riding the Hwy 101 Northward.



Was about 3 miles from the border..... Listen to my iPod in shuffle mode (I have some 5,000 songs) ..... But Homeward Bound came on! Very cool moment as I rolled up to the border listening to this song. Indeed I am HOMEWARD BOUND!






Into Coos Bay for the night, then Lincoln City for Saturday Night. Then the last 100+ miles to my house arriving on Sunday Afternoon. Who's riding with me?

Where are you taking lunch?



I'd meet you for breakfast, but then I'd have to get up early and stuff.

We are riding in spirit with you this weekend, Mark.

You are a one-man global peace mission.
So many people, so many stories, so much love shared. You have brought smiles and joy to us all - especially those who have met you.

You have blessed us all with your perceptive blog posts as you shared your stories of faith, hope and courage on the road.

All the best for a blessed and joyful homecoming and best wishes for the future.

Hey Mark, welcome back to the PDX. Just letting you know that we'll (alainmax--> I'm sure you remember, but we met you in Chilean Patagonia) be at your presentation along with other ADVers from PDX. I have just returned from Chile as well, although I've only been gone half the time you have. I'm sure alainmax would be happy to see you at La Provence soon

I think most adv'ers that have followed this ride report will be riding with you in spirit on Sunday.
Maybe you should put your pillion pegs down so that we don't all fall off.
I'll be heading out as well on Sunday to see off a Spanish couple that are riding from Cape Town back home to Spain.
Ride safe my friend.

Congrats on arriving to the only true home a BMW rider ever needs...

Welcome back to the "real" world, my friend. Stay warm, get planning.

SlowPhil and I expect to see you in Annapolis Royal, NS next July 3rd.
