It's about that time!

My how time flies!  I can not believe that we are only a couple weeks away from our first tour this year! I think I left off somewhere on the Sierra Tour.......time to catch up.

I finished the Sierra Tour in Mammouth Lakes in September and drove the big yellow taxi home.  (The tour ended well...a great tour.  Great staff and riders!) Jack finished his Coast Tour in San Francisco and was home in October.  We drove my mom's car to Arizona for her stay during the winter, and have made two trips down to visit this year.  Matthew got to come home from Afghanistan early!  He arrived home on December 29.  What a relief!  Aaron is settled in Missoula and loving life there! He and Kara adopted a chocolate lab puppy for Christmas, so I now have a grand puppy!  His name is Baker and he is soooo cute!
Scott is gearing up to graduate in June and heads to Marine Corps boot camp in July.  What am I going to do?  An empty house! Well, kind of, if you don't count the critters!

So in two weeks we are off to Tucson for the first ride of the season!  The tour is almost full, so there's still time to sign up! Texas falls second in our schedule, then two Cycle Washingtons: #1 is full and #2 is well on it's way.  This will be Ranger Tommy's farewell tour, as he is retiring!  We will miss him as well as his stories.  The Oregon Coast is #5 for us, then we wrap up the season with the Wine Country Tour.

I will write about the Arizona Tour when we start.  I hope to see you all on a ride this year!  It's going to be fun.
