This is a blog to record all of the crazy stories that will happen throughout the trip from Orlando, FL to Seattle, WA. Here is how it all starts. My best friend is coming back from Germany and so is his girlfriend. She is planning on taking his dog from Orlando to Bozeman, MT. He is planning on taking a bike trip that distance, so it leaves her to drive alone. I will fly down there and ride with her during the trip to keep her company!

Last posting....

Well, welcome to the last posting on this blog. It has been a quick and yet long trip. The longer parts were due to the weather ...Something I learned, I will never live in the south! (they probably wouldn't want me anyway) We're all in Seattle safe and sound ...the "live cargo" is doing great ...I've seen her happier and happier! She is bounding around the house now, doing what dogs do best!
On Sunday (the day we made it to the Emerald City) we went on a "Duck Tour" ...Basically, the tour was of Lake Union (slightly northwest of Seattle) on a military "Duck" ...These are vehicles that drive and also float ...They had a time in the army, but were soon retired for many reasons, one being it moves about 5 knots (when you're being shot at, it isn't quite fast enough!) The pictures on this blog were mostly from the trip ...We also went and visited the EMP (Experience Music Project) in Seattle.
The EMP was started by Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft) ...Last time I went through it, it was a large music history museum in a pretty cool building ...On the space needle picture, the building at the bottom is the EMP building ...This area also houses the Seattle Center area ...There are lots of fairs and shops here ...basically a tourist trap :-)

I want to thank you for reading this blog and keeping up with us across the US ...If any of these pictures are things you'd like (or on my Flickr site) email me and let me know, I'll send you the orig pictures! Someday It'd be cool to be a pro photographer! (Yet another way to get out from behind the desk) ...Also, since you're reading this, I'm starting my own business! (Just a quick sales pitch) I'm starting a Motorcycle Touring Company. Basically, this is an fairly inclusive tour where I take clients from Bed and Breakfast to Bed and Breakfast through out the Pacific Northwest all while riding on motorcycles. I will have specifics on my website ( by the middle of this month, if anyone you know (or perhaps you) would be intersted, please let me know! This next summer is my first summer, so it will be a little shorter than the 2008 summer!
I hope all goes well and once again, thanks for the comments and words of wisdom!
