After my long ride I enjoyed driving my F-150 (with air conditioning and stereo) around my local area for awhile. I have been servicing the bike (new tires, oil and filter change, repacking, etc.). I took several things on the KLR to Alaska that I didn't use or wear at all so I am cutting down "on the load".
I usually work one or two days a week at the Harley Dealer but since I am going to leave again in late September all the other sales guys and gals are taking their vacation time now, so I have been putting in many more hours than usual. Bad for the old tired body but good for the old bank account. I also spent some time trying to get my lawn back to life :=) Since the breakfast didn't seem to be enough, I took my sweetheart to Cabo San Lucas for a week of relaxing on the beach and around the pool (I am going to be gone for about 4 to 5 months on the Central and South America leg so I figured I better really "butter" her up). Also, she says (I had been consuming adult beverages and still don't remember) I areed to take her on another cruise to Tahiti.
We had done a Regent (Radisson) 11 day cruise to Tahiti, the Marquesas,
and the Tuamotus in July of 2005 and really enjoyed it, so I MAY have said something like that. Thankfully, all this working at the Harley Dealer will help that situation (although "part-time" wages just ain't going to cut it). :=) I was able to "put her off" till November of 2007 for the cruise, so maybe I can save up a few bucks.Posted by Rick McDermed at August 16, 2006 12:00 AM GMT
