Post AT

Tonight I am staying at an RV park, not far from Little Rock, AR. I am headed west for Arizona where I will visit family and do a little sight seeing for a while. I’m not sure when I will arrive in Phoenix but I will not tarry too long.

It was nice to spend some time with Jen, Louie, Vinny, Carmen, Lucy, and Dave and Lisa, and Karen, Zack and Noah. Thank you Louie for all the help getting my van out of storage, and for letting me hang out and recover at your home.

My trip south to dispose of my old van, still waiting for me at the park where the AT begins, went pretty much according to plan. I stopped in Winston-Salem, NC and bought the motorcycle I fell in love with since reading about it on the internet. From there I continued on to GA and sold my old van at a junk yard in Atlanta, road the motorcycle back to the park, and stayed there for the night. The next morning I could not get the motorcycle to start. So I loaded it up and drove 5 hours back to NC to have them fix it.

Of course, when I got to the dealer, it started right up. They kept it overnight to make sure nothing was wrong. I’m hoping it was just a fluke.

I wanted to visit friends I met on the AT that live in the south, but now I’m just feeling that I will have to do it another time. Please know that I think of you even though I can’t stop by.

    You’ve been busy since you finished the AT! We’ll be arriving in Mesa on Monday. See you soon.

    We kind of thought you had dropped off the face of the earth, since we hadn’t heard from you after you summited. Glad you are well and heading west; we look forward to seeing you. You’ll have fun with that motorcycle. Just look at all the places Dick and Dianna have been zipping around on theirs and make your bucket list.

    Just back from visiting our grandchildren (and their parents) in Austin and able to find your blog on the laptop I left at home. Hope by now you have reached Phoenix and are enjoying a visit with your family and that your feet and knee are feeling better. Be careful on that bike! Maybe it will bring you to Mississippi one day.
