Awesome photo taken by my cousin’s husband in British Columbia

My cousin’s husband and her 18 year old son are riding their motorcycles from Minnesota to Alaska.  So far they have waded through a herd of cattle, patiently waited for a bear to get off the road, and nearly collided with sheep.  Sounds nothing like my daily commute.

Today it hit 98 degrees F in the nation’s capital.  Way too hot for city living.  It’s that time of year.  I’m not going to Alaska, unfortunately, but I am headed north.

I’m going “home” to see my parents and various other family members.  My father is apparently working on some genealogy project so it looks like a couple of old family graveyards are in my future as well.

And I’m looking forward to having a couple of pints with old friends.
