Weed 4

I kissed Shirley goodbye and headed out for Spokane just before 7am Friday, May 8th. Made it to Lone Wolf Harley about 1pm. Got all the paperwork squared away, all my gear transferred and was on the road again at 3pm. Drove as far as Redmond, OR, arriving at the motel about 10pm. Long day so I didn't set an alarm.

Next morning I was heading out by 9am. Made a short stop at the Veteran's Living Memorial Sculpture Garden just out of Weed, CA to have my first round of tears and get into the tissue box I brought just for these occasions. On to Westley, CA arriving at 8pm.

Third day started with a 6am alarm wakeup and on the road again at 7am. Breakfast at one of my favorite places, Anderson's in Santa Nella where I had a bowl of split pea soup with my eggs and pancakes. Ended the days ride in Palmdale, CA where I checked into the motel, dropped the trailer and went to get the truck washed. After having dinner I re-hitched the trailer and settled in for the night. I chose Palmdale as it is just an hours drive from Ontario and my room arrangements there don't start until Monday night.

To date: 3 days and 1550 miles
