|We've Come A Long Way From Oregon!!|
Tamarack, MN - Population 93! What a "small town" visit! Old farm houses, collector cars, country homes, and small town folks!

|We didn't want to leave, but it was time to say "Adios" and head for Pennsylvania. We miss you already, Jeff and Ginny.|
|As we journeyed on to Washington, PA, we saw early signs of a new season - Fall. Perennials and annuals were on sale, and Fall Mums and colorful pumpkins, squashes, and dried corn were abundant.|
|Motorcycling through Ohio - we shared the road with automobiles and horse and buggy.|
|An Amish family shopping|
|No room in my motorcycle bag to bring back to Cuenca one of these colorful baskets.|
|Brother and Sister Reunion. Lots of laughing, crying, sharing, and making up for several years of not seeing each other.|
|Amy's classy consignment boutique was fun to browse - unfortunately, I can't fit another thing in our bags (darn it! I'm a used clothes junkie!!)|
|If I could, I would have bought Bo this outfit. Doesn't it suit him?|
|Another special visit has come to an end. It's time to leave Amy and this east coast city and journey onward.|
Will we ride through the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway or head for the 9/11 "Two Million Bikers To DC" motorcycle rally in Washington DC? We'll know in the morning. Our next visit and resting stop will be in Charleston, South Carolina to see my dear friend (and ex-boss), Caroline and her family. We're almost there Caroline!
From Charleston, we'll be inching our way down to Tampa, Florida. That's where I'll finally be able to shout, "WE DID IT!!!!"
