Damn I'm impressed, that IS a nice place you scored! Love the bike, love the "Russian" sickle/piston combo.

How many days do you guys have planned for this little excursion? It's certainly a good time of the year to see many parts of the country, especially since you shouldn't have too many problems in the snow.

I'm thinking that I'll be on the road about a month. Our daughter's family has moved into our house to watch things and the pets. They can't stay for the entire time so Julie will likey fly home after we explore Utah. (I can't believe she wants to miss Oklahoma.)
I just went to check on the bike. Oil is up to the top of the dipstick and still looks new. Now it's raining. Can't say that I'm surprised but so far we have two rainfree days behind us. Time to pack.

You scored indeed a nice looking bike there. The journey is going to be a long one that the two of you will for sure remember for years to come. Keep safe guys and keep us posted.

Later

Julie has a few words for you. That was COLD up there!
Just kidding. (well mostly) It was stunning and the cold didn't last too long. We really do appreciate the guidance. The Yakima canyon was great. You are lucky to live in such beauty.

Reorganizing a bit, (Looking for warmer stuff!)
