We are finally(me Mum and I) leaving Florida this coming Sunday, when we load up a rented RV with food, clothes, camera gear, 3 bottles of Scotch, a Box of Romeo Y Juliettes, 25 reds, 35 blues, a pint of raw ether, three sheets of blots, 2 qts of Herradura Tequila, 1 art of rum and 2 cases of Chimay Belgium beer, and take the long and scenic way to Mums new apt and life in Boulder CO.
My 14/0 Everol Tuna rod and reel is still here,and looking for a good home or wall to hang on. This ones a beast, it even looks good just sitting there. Made in Italy, it's 18 1/2 lbs of rod and reel...
Just to give you an idea of how big this reel is, I put a quarter on the side of it for scale.
And speaking of big....
So this coming Sunday morning I depart from Fort Lauderdale for points north and west, heading to Austin TX for a stop with a friend who lives in Roundrock. Then it's on to west TX and New Mexico.
The Team Red White and Blue run in Shanksville PA is on schedule for Sept 11th, so as soon as the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials end Sept 1st in Wendover UT at the Bonneville Speedway, i'll be heading east.
I have been swamped to try to get everything packed and ready to go,hence the gap in the blog posts. When I leave this time, the foreclosure process will be moving ahead on the house, so one more trip here and that'll be it for that chapter of my life.
I will miss good friends at the beach here, but I have spent so much time away from "home" in the last two years living on the road, that my "home" has now become wherever I pitch my tent.
