Yes, time flies when you’re all of the aboving, sliced at about 50% travel, 35% adventure, and 15% vacation. We were pretty busy just getting from one place to the next, we averaged about 36 hours in each city. It was definitely a buffet tour. But a good buffet where the food is fresh.
I shot about 1,500 digital photos (almost 10Gb) which is kind of ridiculous when you consider that would be about 60 rolls of conventional film. I have a lot of sorting to do, but I should start posting this weekend. I’ll also be writing around the most memorable events as I get through the photos. So stay tuned…
I spent today fixing the flat tire that greeted me when I got home. It was a slow leak, which had plenty of time to deflate. I put on the spare tire and drove down to the gas station to find the leak, added a little air, and slowly rotated the tire while running water over it. Sure enough, some kind of cardboard staple was lodged in the tread. I picked up a puncture patch kit (easier than patching a bike tire) and fixed the flat in the parking lot. See Dad, I did learn a thing or too.
