Cruise underway!

September 30, 2012

Torrential rain as we headed to the cruise port! Seems Mark and Mary’s luggage suffered the most. So we spent time hanging stuff up and using the hair dryer to help the process. We were some of the first groups to board our ship. And I think we sampled adult beverages and topas in every […]

We have arrived…Barcelona

September 28, 2012

As I write, it is Friday at 2:20pm. We are sitting in HardRock Cafe having food , refreshments and free wi-fi!!! I’ve been having terrible issues with my data capabilities from my iPhone. This morning I have spent over 45 minutes on the phone with Verizon. We DO have Mary’s working. Mine, on the other […]

The hardest part was getting up so early! Had to be at the airport at 4:30 this morning…. Not to worry, Mom was catching really quick!

Trip’s End

September 5, 2012

Can’t think of a more fitting end to a fantastic trip than a ride down Arkansas Scenic 7! We left The Hub before 8 o’clock this morning for a (what I thought) was a short ride to breakfast. Three hours later I still hadn’t found that special breakfast spot but we did manage to ride […]

Back in Arkansas

September 4, 2012

It’s our last night on the road so we have chosen a familiar spot for the night. The Hub Motorcycle Resort in Marble Falls. This is only the second time I’ve stayed here, but I feel like I’m helping the “little guy” when I do. One of Harley-Davidson’s manufacturing facilities was in Kansas City. V-Rods, […]

State lines

September 3, 2012

When we left Norfolk, Nebraska this morning it was very cloudy, some rain was falling, and even a little thunder and lightning. And, yes, we did get rained on. But it wasn’t enough to warrant suiting up. So we just plodded along until the sun finally broke through the clouds and started warming things up. […]


September 2, 2012

This was a pretty uneventful day. First of all, this was the day we started our “southern descent”, in other words, we are beginning our return trip. That in itself is enough to sadden us all. But, onward we must go! We left Wall (and the drug store) behind about 9 this morning. Road construction, […]

Just sharing with you some of the sights that we experienced today. This morning we left the black hills and headed to the Badlands. Once we got through Rapid City, the wind started picking up. And picking up and picking up!!! I’m still not sure what the wind speed was, but I know I fought […]
