Susan and Saul!
|Thank you to Saul and Susan for a great workout at Mad Dawg Fitness and the night's stay with coffee and kitties - great to see you guys continuing to thrive in Redwood City!|
Lunches and dinners and coffee and workouts in Santa Cruz with lots of good friends! It was great to be back in Santa Cruz - thanks for a great "old times in Santa Cruz" visit Adrian and Kim, Nicole and Tosh, Pat, Ian, Miranda and Tyson! Great to see all of you!
|The "Spur"! We used to eat here when we would come and visit the original CrossFit gym crew back in the day!|
|Highway 1 in all it's glory. Awesome to be able to drive that route from Santa Cruz to Santa Barbara! We even got sightings of dolphin pods jumping several times!|
Anna and Ronnie!
|Santa Barbara beach and an old time merry-go-round! Great day with our Bakersfield mountain biking buddies! We sure miss these guys!|
Ron and Candas!
|Good bye to the Adventure Mobile for awhile...heading into LA to put it on a ship bound for Chile.|
Time to drop our adventure home off in Compton... Wait. What? Compton?! Yes, we were pretty anxious about that, but it turned out just fine. No shady deals in a chop shop. We didn't drop it in the 'hood. Just a normal warehouse in a light industrial area. It's now off on it's own adventure, sealed into a container on a ship bound for Valparaiso, Chile. We will see it in October (hopefully with all our belongings intact)! For now....we get to return home to Flagstaff for a few weeks before we head out for a few stops around the globe before we head South! More posts to come in mid-September.
|Old vs new FJ's. Got to rent a new FJ to drive home from LA, and then get to drive the old one now that we are home!|
|Welcome home! GORGEOUS sunsets and the Cruizer greeted us and Bruce and Jane welcomed us home with a wonderful home-cooked dinner and Heather had her big bed waiting for us! We are HOME with our people!|
|Our West Coast Friends and Family tour closes and we prepare ourselves for the next chapter of this year-long journey.|
