Back on the Road again!!

Trey and I left Whistler BC Thursday and drove back to Oly for a few days. It just so happens to be the Capital Forest mountain bike race this weekend.
I got to ride the new course a couple of times and we got to hang out with our Oly gang.

Trey and I looked at the map yesterday and have set forth a plan of action. We plan to get back on the road tomorrow.

 Here is the plan.

Drive south to Portland (eat at the Mother’s Bistro)
Head East to Hoodriver. (Stay the night, I may bike)
Continue East into Boise
Head south into Salt Lake City
Even more south until we get to Hwy 70
Start heading east again and visit (Goblin Valley, Moab, and Fruita)
Continuing East all the way to Denver, where we will stay until October…

 October is the yearly family trip. This year we are headed to the Dominican Republic.

I’m looking forward to getting back on the road now that Trey is starting to walk with his crutches. He is doing much better however he is totally sick of using crutches and he wish he could do more for himself. He really wants to just get back on his bike and live his life.


  1. Good to see you guys. I've been to Goblin Valley. That place is out of this world.

  2. From the world wide internet -

    No. 1 town(less than 50k population) USA - Louisville, CO
    Population: 18,400
    Unemployment: 6.3%

    Louisville, CO is 1st.

    This sunny, lively mountain town is safe (crime rates are among the lowest in Colorado) and easy to navigate. Lots of good jobs in tech, telecom, aerospace, clean energy, and health care can be found right in Louisville, and more are on their way. And there’s world-class mountain biking, hiking, and skiing in the nearby Rockies. Real estate prices have barely budged since 2005, yet a typical three-bedroom house here still runs less than a comparable one in nearby Boulder. Its schools consistently rank among the top three academically in the Denver area. — Jessica Levine
