Oh my gosh the week in California went fast! I was not able to write the blog as we did not have internet access but for one day! So a quick review: we had a great week with great weather and great riders and staff! Jerry kept us entertained with nightly dance lessons and a talent show the second to last night.....one tribe member can do a killer Woody Woodpecker imitation! Joe kept every one safe and sane with his side kick "Spanky".......which by the way is his new nickname! Bob kept every one rolling along taking care of the bikes and Tammy led a great ride! Our great friend Michelle brought a group of newbies to ACA touring from her bike club....they were a hoot and had a great time!
After a first long day from Chula Vista the tribe got to relax in beautiful hotel rooms and explore Julian. The second ride day was DOWWWWN the hill and up and over to Borego Springs where the tribe spent three days riding, hiking, chilling by the pool and eating! The second to last day was back up and over and UPPPPP to Julian for another night in the hotel. We had a fun last map meeting and bid everyone goodbye on Friday morning. Jack and stayed in Julian an extra day and explored town and spent a better part of the afternoon at the Blue Door Winery...it was a fun time!
After a day off I flew home to work for a week and a half and Jack headed East to spend time with friends and work his way to Texas, where we are now kicking of the Hill Country Tour. I promise to do a better job of blogging this next week! If you were on the CA tour, I would love to have you post some of your best memories of the trip!
