Crazy Canuck tour to California and Back again

I left Edmonton at 1am Wednesday morning to drive through rain, fog and snow to start my first ROAD TRIP in 25+ years. I was headed to Sacramento california to ride the American River Trail.
I arrived in Cochrane to pick up bluecoyote at 6:30 am. By 8 pm we were on our way. After 30+ hours of outrageous stories from Cornell, some good and poor restaurant meals; carting motels, lots of coffeeand zipping through southern Alberta, across Montana, Idaho,
Nevada ( took a slight detour to see lake Tahoe) into california, we arrived at the Red Roof Inn in Sacramento.
Other people started to arrive around 2 pm. Its Nice to meet the faces behind the avatars From BROL. Around seven we started to go to dinner At a Thai restaurant. Because the Various arrival times we ended up going into two groups and eventually about 10 of us started to congregate in the parking lot around 9:30 pm to swap stories. Its starting to feel like another version of TOT. People taking rides, looking at bikes and have a great time. Oh, yeah, it was about 29c. Hot times. Saturday looks hot and perfect for a 'bent rally and ride. Stay tuned
