I made it home today. Ivonne flew home from Atlanta last Tuesday. The highlight of the trip home was a stop at The Barber Museum. I rode home from there with overcast skies and a fair bit of rain.
I rode 10,025.6 kms in a month. I changed the oil at friens place in Asheville. We duscovered a spoke had lost its mipple and replaced it with one that fits but is a liitle different. I also replaced 2 headlight bulbs and got new tyres in Houston

Some of may have read here that Ivonne had a malignant tumour removed in May. I thought then our bikes trip were over but 5 months later she was riding great roads in Tennesse and North Carolina.
Great trip and a great wife. 75E38A3B-14AA-43CB-9F04-FE9436DAF127.jpeg 75E38A3B-14AA-43CB-9F04-FE9436DAF127.jpeg

We had a great time and it was good to see everyone again. Fine paved and dirt roads. Could not ask for any better.
Thank you Patrick and all that had a hand in this Rally.
I took what could have been a cool pic of your drone.

From where I was sitting, my view of the drone was thru a gap in the branches of a tree in which there was a spider in a web. I had full zoom on a cell phone to get it, so it's a crap picture, but the idea of a spider catching a tiny drone (the drone was much further away than the spider) was interesting to me.

Good idea. That would have been a cool shot to see.

Stop with the spider pictures. I saw him in person.
It was RIGHT ABOVE YOUR HEAD!!

I heard a noise coming from your tent the second night, so I peeked in. You were asleep, but that spider was crawling across your face. It wasn't obvious why, but then I saw she was just trying to get to your helmet, so she could lay some eggs in the air vents.

Pretty sure she crapped in your breakfast, too.

Kidding aside, it was nice meeting and riding with you, camp neighbor. I'm not sure I thanked you profusely enough for the flashed test-ride.

...speaking of which, backwards kharma: when I was heading back to Hunt's on your bike, I took a bug in the neck. Didn't think much of it until I got a stabbing pain in the belly a few minutes later. At home, I took my shirt off and my wife screams "Oh my God - what the heck happened to you?"

I have 5... FIVE... wasp bites on my stomach. Itched for days.

... so I already paid in advance for that spider-laying-eggs-in-your-helmet joke.

Sounds bad. Glad you enjoyed the test ride. I've always had a thing for spiders. Wasps, hornets and bees aren't to far behind. Hope it's clearing up.
