BACK TO TODAY

As you can see....I had a post ready in the writer and forgot to post it. It was from day 2. It has some great pictures so I thought I'd go ahead and post-post it...
Now for yesterday and today.....we left Twin Falls Idaho for Ketchum on Thursday morning with the hope of making it to Boise, Idaho. Son Steven is stationed just outside Boise in Mt. Home but wasn't available for visit. I'll see him with son Michael for fathers day for road trip..(car)
Weather or the threat of weather hampered part of the day. The threat of thunderstorm was an issue....but with the help of the mobile internet, we managed to make it to Boise with a stop over in Fairfield Idaho to wait on some thunderboomers to pass
While in Ketchum, we stopped for a great breakfast at the Kneadery and at the grave of Hemingway...

Once we made Boise, we had a nice dinner at "cool hand Luke's"

While in Fairfield, we had our first mechanical problem....It was very windy and I had placed helmet on the seat of the bike while at a cafe and the wind blew it off and broke the plastic screw holding the face shield on.... she bravely rode all the way from Fairfield to Boise without the shield. It was a little cold and braved herself all the way there. We finally found a screw at a 'Cycle Gear" store and it's now fixed..

So we are in Pendleton, Oregon for the night...getting ready for dinner.
I want to make a side note....
While in Boise this morning, there was a pre-Memorial Day ceremony that I want to post on but am in a hurry and I want to give the post the time it deserves....Thanks to all the men and women who have given up the ultimate sacrifice and I don't want to rush through that post...

Isn't it nice to have an "official" photographer along now? Love the shots from the back of the bike!

Oh, and if Katherine asks you to stop a lot so she can take pictures - please do so as this is the only way I'm going to see these parts of the country!

If you're interested in increasing your readership, just keep posting pics of Kat. ; ) Have fun and safe travels, to you two. Cheers!!

I loved driving through Idaho. I love the mountains, the tall trees, the creeks and rivers - all stunning and serene. Thanks for taking us all along; keep posting the photos!

BTW, great photos of each of you in the giant chair.

Big chair pics are cool...Nice to have a camera-person on board for those 'moving shots'

In answer to your question in the post from day 2....not boring at all!
