Back Home Part 2

So now is my photo slideshow of our journey back east.   After Oregon and a little ride down the coast we headed towards Tahoe.   I think the next time we do this we have to head out of NY and head south first then west, especially if we go in early spring.  Then return via a more northern route as the weather warms.  I'm getting a little ahead of myself since another four week vacation is not something I see in my near future.

I hope you've enjoyed the blog.  I've enjoyed going back over it a few times.  Sorry it took so long to finalize but it's been on my to do list.  If it's on the list it eventually gets done.

I wish we were planning another trip like this for 2015 but I don't think that is in the cards.  I would not mind trying to take two weeks and perhaps stay in the northeast but go further north.  Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Quebec?  Perhaps the Finger Lakes to the Great Lakes?

The final pics below.

Parasailing in Tahoe.  It was really quite cold.  No thanks.

Our Tahoe Gal lake cruise was a nice way to get out on the water for three hours on our rest day. Tahoe is beautiful.
 The Tahoe Gal bucket of Bud Light ladies.
Cool cloud coming in.
 After leaving the chilliness of Tahoe it did't take too long to get HOT!!!  Here we are heading out on Route 50 through Nevada and into Utah.  If you look close there is a little dust Devil in the distance.
 Yup.  I'm still there.
 Pretty lonely.  Liking this.
 Lonelier.  Even better.  I guess I earned my pin.
 This is route 50 in Utah.  Looks kind of the same as in Nevada.
 Servier Lake.  Waterless lake.

Interstate 70 - Perhaps the loveliest interstate in the US?!?!
The Colorado and the Suzuki.  They look good.
Mark Twain national Forest in Missouri.  Kind of a gloomy day but it's always nice to be away from population centers.
Waiting on the Dorena Hickman Ferry.  Did I mention I love a ferry?
We were the only passengers.  We tried to buy a t-shirt, but they did not have what we needed.  The Mississippi is brown.  I didn't realize this left from Missouri. 
 Yummy BBQ.  Highly recommend Southern Reds Bar-B-Que if you are ever in Water Valley, Kentucky.  It wasn't too far from the ferry.

 Their version of drive-thru.
 Look wheat!  I bet there is corn on the other side.
 We had this homemade pizza in Kentucky.  Impressed with Kentucky.
 We took a short ride one day while in Tennessee - found a little burger joint along the way.  Very good shakes.
 And we are back!!!!
 Much different view than the bikes, but we enjoy this as well.
Until next time!!!
