Treks Within Reflection – Pausing in the "Here and Now" Adventures

Hi All! 

First comment is it was easier to access wi-fi in Peru than it's been since we've been on the road and I've learned how attached I am to internet access... Am sitting in a McDonald's (of all places!) and will try to catch you all up.

We arrived Harrisburg, PA about 530P last night ~ after an "oops, wrong turn" in West Virginia, which resulted in our arrival yesterday (Saturday) instead of Friday. But no worries ~ we traveled through some beautiful country (the mountains of Kentucky, Virginia, and West Virginia are like I've never seen before ~ even photos won't reflect their essence. The only metaphor I can think of is if you set cotton balls out side by side, in a tight circle, they are like the mountains ~ rolling, side by side in all directions and lush with vegetation and trees. (Probably a poor visual description, but the best I can do working on a cup of McDonald's coffee.)

Anyway, after leaving Arkansas, we traveled across Kentucky, into Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and finally into Pennsylvania. No weather issues (no rain); it's been hot but clouds have helped filter the direct sun. We've been talking to other motorcyclists and travelers along the way and everyone's still talking about how much the weather has changed.

Will keep this short, but want you to know all is well and we've arrived our second "destination" ~ Richard had a bad case of "destination fever" since Huntsville, so we've been putting on over 350 miles/day. By about 250, my bum is done, but I've learned to gently wiggle into a more comfortable spot until it goes numb too ~ LOL.

We'll be staying here with Richard's Brother until Friday, whereupon the next destination is North Carolina for a week. Richard's eager to visit his Relatives during these next few days, so I'm not sure what specific adventures we'll pursue. Though he did promise we'd go to the Lancaster Amish country ~ hooray!

I suspect it will be a few more days before I'm back on wi-fi, so hang in there with me...

So for now, I'll sign off with a "Thinking of you all, Namaste" and a PS ~ thank you everyone for your comments regarding the blog! Loving you ~ Always!



Think of you everyday and where your adventure is taking you. This has been great to have a little moment each time to live vicariously!! Be well, be safe and know you are loved Sister. Namaste to you.
