Where did the time go? It has been one year, to the day, since I was laid up with a gout attack in Paris, TX while on my adventure to California. I haven’t done a whole lot of riding this year due to some family issues. The heat of summer is here with a vengeance in Virginia. I have spent some time going through the website my computer wizard brother in law made to document my California adventure in conjunction with the posts I made to HDT. I have corrected some spelling and grammatical errors as well as adding captions to many of the pictures. There are still some that do not have captions, but I can’t remember exactly where some of them were taken, or there were multiple pictures of the same place. If you have nothing to do while you are not riding, the website makes for cheap entertainment. If anyone has constructive criticism to make it better, feel free to let me know. It is a work in progress and any suggestions for improvement would be most appreciated. (maddogmarrion.com). It’s a good thing I took the trip when I did. Since my return, my dad died. My mom had an aortic aneurysm and some strokes. She is now in a rehabilitation facility with questionable prospects of coming out and going back to her home. I took her dog to my house with me and my sister gave her cats to loving homes. The 2010 Ultra Classic that I bought in October of 2010 barely has 4K miles on it and I think the prospect of putting any significant miles on it this year are minimal. I had considered selling it, but I would take a thrashing on it and maybe I can take another adventure next year. Maybe I’ll just hang onto it. The missus has to go away for some job related training in July and she will not be back for ten weeks. With four dogs to take care of, I don’t see how I will be able to take any major rides for the foreseeable future. I hope everyone that has taken trips during the past year and those who will take a major trip this year will be as fortunate as I was regarding weather and keeping the demons at bay. As today is Memorial Day, think of those that have served and given their all, so we may enjoy the things we do. Best wishes to you all!
