Journey Day 5

The last day of our motorcycle adventure and also our 22nd anniversary.Upgrade your email with 1000's of emoticon icons

I don’t do sunrises — too early, but on this morning I did get to watch some of the sunrise as it came up across the lake.  The only word to describe it that I could think of was Majestic.  I sat out on the deck and read and watched the mist as it began to fade.  What a perfect place to start the last leg of our journey.

We had breakfast out on the deck.  I could get used to that!!! 

We had around 400 miles to go on this the final day of our journey.  The clouds began to roll in and Curt thought we’d better get started.  We did outrun any storm and soon the sky was bright blue and very sunny.  In fact most of the entire day was sunny.  I pretty much felt cooked before it was over.  There are some advantages to overcast skies.  

We rode down through Wisconsin and picked up the Great River Road.  It was different seeing the Mississippi when the sun was shining.  

Lots of bikers on the highways.  It was a bit out of my comfort zone when we first started riding the cycle, in that at any stop you make around other bikers, you can just expect them to talk to you like they have known you forever.  I guess it is the brotherhood of the biker or something.  Now I am pretty much used to it, which goes to show that comfort zones can be overcome.  :0

One thing you have plenty of while riding down the highway is time.  Time to think, time to pray, time to regroup …  It reminded me of a blog Curt wrote on people and thinking – you might want to check that out.

Curt’s blog


As we near home I have to remind Curt about the speed.  He doesn’t intentionally speed, but he kept referring to the ‘horse who sees the barn up ahead’.   All in all, it was a fantastic trip.  The bike was indeed made for highway traveling.

Boredom?? Not this trip.  Amazement – yes.  Truly it was a trip where  we took time to smell the roses,  had ample time to reflect on the important things in life, and took time to bask in God’s presence.

I’ve been asked many times “Would you go again?”  My answer – absolutely!!  How about now??

til next time
