Seattle, April 24

We got back home to Seattle last night. 184 days, 16,742.2 miles, 8 countries, 13 border crossings later. It’s going to take a while to absorb this whole trip!

We had good ride in the USA. Our first stop was Los Angeles for a visit with Dan and Will. We did some maintenance on the bikes and Dan made us some great Asian food meals, which were wonderful on their own but especially welcome as flavors we haven’t had in a while. We also spent a morning as extras on the set of Will’s new project. I’ve never seen that business before, so it was fascinating for me. It was also nice to be able to leave after only five hours instead of having to stay the 14 hours or so that Will was working. If you haven’t yet, go see Will’s feature film directing debut, Blades of Glory.

From there, we went all the way to Santa Barbara (90 miles) to visit a motorcycle friend, who took us on a great ride in the Santa Barbara mountains, just out his backdoor.

We wandered up the California coast, mostly on highway 1 with some dirt road detours that took us up on ridges high above the Pacific. Great weather, although a bit cold for us now that our blood has thinned after all that heat down south. We knew we were going run right into some wet weather, so we opted to explore lots while the sun was shining. We made it all the way to Coos Bay, Oregon, before the rain really hit. By then, we were heading inland to visit in the foothills east of Eugene. We holed up with Rick and Lin for the worst of the rain, then took advantage of a one day respite to blast home yesterday.

Here’s pictures from the California Coast:

So that’s it for our Central America trip. Thanks for reading. Who knows what the next adventure will bring??
