Hey Mark,

That's pronounced 'CHOWDAH' and the folks that own the Trillium are friends of mine. Michelle is a real kick and I have known the Hanel family since 1990 when I moved to HR. You get to know everyone in a smalll town when you live there for 10 years. It will be one of my first stops. I'll say howdy for ya!

I am prepared, heck HONORED! to offer to buy the Starbucks or Einsteins or etc... whenever you come through ABQ! Have the CP as well! Before you get to ABQ coming westbound, off of I-40, about about 2.5 miles!

Just give a shout!

Axel
Count on it! And thanks! I'll keep you posted on the trip's progress.

Take your pick; my treat.

Have a pleasant trip!
I'll keep you posted on the trip and thanks for the offer! It could turn in to a mini-Forum gatthering . Hell, maybe we should turn it into a rally....well, never mind! It is all good!!!

If you are in southern Illinois

Hey Lew,

If you wander through southern Illinois, stop by little grassy campground and visit. Its on a nice lake and friendly. It would put you about two hours out of Stl if you are passing through there on your way. Happy trails.

Thanks Rodney,

I usually head up thru StL and hit I-70 to Denver but I might take I-40 this trip to be in better position for Albuquerque and points north from there. I'll keep you posted as soon as I the the road!

Lew did you say you are heading up to Breckenridge on you way up to Orgeon? If so, you should note that there are night closures on Hoosier Pass/CO-9 into Breckenridge. You can always bypass through Leadville on US24 to CO-91 and hit I-70 at Copper Mountain and down to Frisco/CO-9.

Thanks for the heads-up! As fate would have it, I will not be headed to Breckenridge this trip as work kept me in FL a couple of weeks longer than anticipated. After the stop in Placitas, NM, I'll probably be heading right to Hood River, but one never knows what one will encounter along the way.....now do one?

Lew,

Your advise has been priceless. If you were coming through the Central Indiana area I'd serve up a cold one and there is plenty of parking and 30A service beside the LY. Hell, I'd move the LY and just let you have all the space! Just 30 minutes north of I-70 off I-69. Cell # on profile. Have a great summer.

Lew,
What type of bike riding, mtn or road? There's lots of both around western Washington just up the road (i.e. I-5) from Hood River. We need lots of detail work done on our Argosy 24. Do you get into stuff like rebuilding pocket doors, fixing tambors, etc? We'll be gone the month of August but could drop off the trailer for a week or two in Hood River during July. Or, if you're making a swing north after leaving Hood River then I guess there's no reason we have to be there to have you work on the trailer (we're not taking it to Ireland
)

-Bernie

GW,

Thanks so much for your kind words. It's really nice to know that I can make a positive contribution to this Forum. I will definitely bank your offer in the 'raincheck' file and be sure to give a shout if/when I'm in the area!

Hi Bernie,

Why don't you drop me a note to lew@gorge.net and we'll 'talk' more on this.

PS: I ride both, but have to get a new road ride after some low life stole my 15lb Giant TCR carbon race bike right out of my garage a few weeks ago. It's already on order from the shop in Hood River and should be there when I arrive!!

Talking Final bump

Well, it's almost time to get the flock out-a-here!!

I'm just finishing up the packing (or should I say 'shoe-horning') trying to fit all of the toys, goodies, some clothes and........ oh ya, my motorcycle in the van....along with all of my tech tools so I can work on the road. Quite a challenge.

I'll be pulling out on Sat morning and will keep in touch with progress reports as cell service allows.

Clancy Boy, KLevan and Silver Toy.......I'm headed your way!!!!!!!!!!

SEE YA ON THE ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
