The Move, Part Four

May 1 – June 10 Up early Monday morning we loaded the cars and hit the road for Nashville, our first stop of the trip, after bidding farewell to Ann and Rendy and of course, Joanna who I would see in about a week.  We’d planned out the adventure so that no day of driving […]

The Move, Part Three

May 1 – June 10 Besides hanging out with friends we would dearly miss during our last few days in town, we did get out for a few bike rides and one memorable on I’ll refer to as the nostalgia ride.  During our eleven years of riding in and around Charlotte we’d initially ridden a […]

West Coast Spring 2018 – Denver

August 11 – 12 Our drive to Jenna (Rendy’s daughter) and Tyson’s house in Thornton, a suburb of Denver would take a little over five hours.  Per Doug’s recommendation, we decided to take the scenic route to the I-70 over the Grand Mesa, a twisty and steep ascent and descent through spectacular scenery.
