Vacay (Week 3)

Vacay, definitely not stay-cay. Time to take a little vacation from the rain. Go on holiday as the Brits say. My wife and I and our three boxers are hitching up the trailer and headed to the desert southwest. The first couple rides of the week will just be more of the same here at home, but then I should have a nice change of scenery to share. But first we have to get everything cleaned and packed and then haulΒ the trailer up and over the Sierras before the next storm arrives mid-week. πŸ™‚
