A Birthday in Seattle... WA




A Birthday in Seattle… WA

We are at a stand still tonight… Friday night… parts have not showed up as just about everything else has been done, reinforced… need the shocks back to get the rest going… all three of them! Managed to cook a nice dinner last night having come across a Cooper River Sockeye Salmon… fresh… caught Sunday. Some errands… more tomorrow again and will check out the town… “Enumclaw”…
It has been REALLY nice to get best wishes from so many! A real treat I assure you…
When are we getting back on the road? Most likely Wednesday… not a good day for it considering the Holiday weekend, but…
More on the Blog…

Be well…

Enumclaw... WA



Enumclaw… WA

I don’t know about Spirit… but I can taste and see the finish line suddenly! If it was not for the rebuilt shocks shipped from Georgia ground instead of air… we would have been rolling by Monday for sure… Now? Maybe Tuesday evening… pull a late one!
Anyhow I cannot leave this town till I have a piece of a pie from the “Pie Goddess”… You can see her on the Blog…

Till later… you be well…

Ara & Spirit

… and don’t forget, if and when in your area… would love to cook for you!

Rolling again... Mt Rainier, WA

Rolling again… Mt Rainier, WA

Savoring the moments with each mile with an incredible handling rig, Mt Rainier’s breathtaking beauty, snow in July, incredible weather, great company, a happy Spirit… what more would I ask for! I must have done something right to deserve all this. What an accomplishment on Andy’s part to have spend unselfishly so many hours reconstructing the rig from ground up… There is Karma, I cannot ignore it. It makes me await the future with excitement as the times to come can only be filled with the great pictures of a life that can only have more positive aspects…
More pictures on the Blog…

Be well…

A fun taste of Seattle.... WA

Thanks NoGall...



A fun taste of Seattle… WA

Noah… RattytoAustin… this one is for you guys! Thanks for the company and the entertainment… also for Woody from “Woody’s Wheels” for introducing us to a delightful friend of yours… Meg.
It was a fun day… quite different from the ordinary… There will be more of those I am sure as we are moving near by tomorrow waiting for some mail to follow me…
Maybe too many pictures today?… Oh well… enjoy them in the Blog…

Be well… as always…

… and remember, if in your area, would love to cook for you… I can do that!

Just like a maiden voyage... WA



Just like a maiden voyage…. WA

No having my usual Internet connection has been enjoyable… seems like “we” have much more time… a double edge sword however… the jury is still out. This feels as part II of the Journey… everything has been fixed… redone… realigned… I just wish I was more mechanically inclined as I have, it seems like, done my share of damage and ill repairs…
The sights are incredible… camping by ourselves… only silence… only the birds in concert…
Sunsets on the hills… and more on the Blog…

You be well…

More of Washington State...




More local riding and stuff… WA

The word on everyone’s mind is HOT… 104 degrees today… uncomfortable after being used to some cool weather. Have to watch Spirit closely, stay under cover or keep moving. After a day at Dauntless, having the sidecar’s disc brake reworked on, great results by the way, courtesy of Jay, we even went up the pass to… I thought… lay on the snow and cool off. But no more snow! All has melted, except on the peaks of course.
More on the website…

Be well…

His web site documenting the journey is truly incredible. Ara seems like a truly wonderful human being. He even writes you back if you e-mail him! I just donated to his site this morning. Small price to pay for being able to share the adventure with him!

Mt St Helen weekend... WA (part I)

Thank you for the kind words and gesture EXCESS... I try!!!... and I know that you do to.



Mt St Helen weekend… WA (part I)

What a coincidence to be on the same route and destination as the Northwestern Moto Guzzi riders… we end up camping close by and enjoying their food and company… Learned a couple cooking tips… after all these years… a ride to Mt St Helen…
Today however I have written some thoughts about Life and this Journey following some interesting conversations with other riders… tomorrow will be about the weekend… all on the website. Lets think about this as a two part… to Mt St Helen…

Be well…

Hi Ara. Do you know the route you will be taking the next 2 weeks? Bob and I are going on an 8 day trip and wondering if our paths will cross. We will be in Bandon, Oregon on Tuesday and will be making our way up the coast (with some back road diversions). Our plan is to be in Port Angeles by Friday and take the ferry into Victoria. We will be heading out of Washington by Sunday. Would be cool to meet you!

Up Mt St Helen... WA (part II)

WOW!!! I will be in Enumclaw starting tonight... till?... friday am... actually does not matter till when... still need to find a place to stay... (waiting for mail / a couple more mods on the rig).
So I can be pretty flexible and meet you guys somewhere... watch for traffic hours however... You can also call when near by... will pm the #...



Up Mt St Helen… WA (part II)

Does not seem that I can write it all in one page or so… too many pictures also… It was a great weekend being close by the Northwest Guzzi riders… a great and kind group of riders… After all, I was the outsider!
I will leave my feelings toward Mt St Helen for the next time… eerie… transcending deep thoughts… ground zero of a 9/11 with Mother Nature responsible for such destruction and taking so many lives…
In the meantime you can check out how to make an omelet in a ziplock bag… and the sights of this Tropical like forest we have been in… all on the website.

Be well…

Ara & Spirit
