10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4,3, 2, 1, there's been a delay

It looks like this Teamster is going to miss his countdown....Is that due to what those "union bashers" call union "work ethic"?....No...this Teamster is a very good worker and has much respect from not only his peers from from those in Management.
I'm going to be late on countdown because I CAN. You see, I'm on vacation and can come and go as I please. Although I don't like being late, I'm finishing up on some packing (decided to not take the camp gear) and trying to dodge the little rain/drizzle. If I wait all day though, I'll never leave. Mickey and Dave from Tehachapi told me it's not raining down their way, so I just need to head south.
I've heard many a comments/suggestions from family and friends to be careful, ride safe, etc. I understand that many people worry about me while on this trip. I'll be on the bike, I'll be alone for the first part of the trip, and I'll be in the desert southwest. And I know that I want to be 'free" from worry, live in the moment, I promise I will do a good job of not only posting the fun stuff, but also post a "I made it safe" daily. If I think I will be in an area for a day or two without internet, I'll let  know and she will put up a post for me..
and Michael J...I'm not cooking, but I won a picnic set/ice chest that fits in the side bag and I'm keeping water and soda and snack in it since some of my ride is in the desert....
