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!

Recovery day in Denver [Greatest city in the USA]

Yesterday was a recovery day...we didn't do much...The objectives for the day were to get a manicure and foot-acure (can't spell the "real" word...I tried 10 times...but too lazy to look up)...oh yeah, back to the day...My co-pilot decided she should be ready for any of the upcoming that was one goal...I had ripped my contact the day previous (that's why I have glasses on while standing in front of the ball of string [ see day before ], my goal was to get a new prescription and contacts...while we waited for the appointments, we went and saw Superman (really wanted to see Clerks II, but the theatre wasn't playing it)...I was was a good movie...they actually did the story justice! (they had to have, it's been done how many times?)

After the appointments and such (I could now see further than 200 feet!) we went to the Rockies game...My dad works there so I thought it'd be a fun thing to do...the Rockies STOMPED the cardinals...I got to see a in-the-park homerun! Also several home runs, sacrifice hits, bunts and great field work! It was a great game...

Now on to the dog...well, I have some news about her...she LOVES IT HERE! She has been running laps around my parents yard as often as she can...she gets along with my dog, but my sisters dog doesn't like her (shes new, so I keep them separated) Its so great to see how much shes opened up from the first time I saw her...she is always happy and wagging her tail...its amazing!

I'm going to close with a few random facts about Denver (maybe to entice you to visit the mile high city)

1. You weigh less here
2. 1 beer here = 1.5 at sea level
3. Purple mountains majesty
4. Rockies are great (on Mondays)
5. 26 world class ski resorts!
6. 360 days of sunshine a year (#1 in the nation...more than Florida)
7. Last but not least, #2 in the country for lighting strikes...Storms are beautiful!!!

p.s. I'll post more pictures tomorrow...maybe add some to this posting to spice it up!
