Tempe, Arizona – Sedona & Grand Canyon


June 2012 – Business & Pleasure (all pics are clickable for HiRez size)

June 15th – June 18th Leslie was taking a course about Hospital Development and Organ Donation.  Cheryl flew down on the 15th for some R & R while I was in my course.  Great course sponsored by NATCO and was useful to attend even though we do things much differently in Canada.

While we were away Cheryl’s cousin Taylor and boyfriend Dave took care of our “kids” and house…they have a little Chihuahua, Olive which made 4 dogs and an elderly cat for them to care for over a week. They always help out these “kids” and that also meant they were here for 44 days last summer while we were up north. We trust them immensely.

Outta here on July 9th 2012


Finally we get to go away on our bikes for more than a long weekend.  This will not be an epic trip like last years 44 day Alaskan Adventure but it’s going to be a great trip just the same.  We will have our SPOT Connect with us on tracking too.  We do this not only for anyone who might want to follow but for our family and friends to keep an eye on us.  We hate using cell phones on the road and this is one way we can stay in touch with those we need to without using the phone.

We also can skype etc.  Technology comes in handy.  There will be live update on this BLOG, our Facebook pages as well as tons of pictures.  Anyone who follows this blog sure knows Leslie LOVES her pictures.  We are excited to head down to KLIM and see where our suits are made or come from at least.  We are looking forward to getting some off roads riding tips, meeting other ADV riders and enthusiasts.  Just excited to get outta of here and get away from our jobs and be together on the road.  That is where we feel our best.

Closer to departure date I will post the SPOTwalla page so if you feel lke you want to track where we are going you can see it live.  We have no idea really where we are going after Rigby, ID so everyone else will find out when we do.  ;-)

More info on this 2 weeks adventure on the next few weeks.  WE can not wait! :-)

This has to be the most beautiful Tourism commercial I have ever seen….Great ALBERTAN style.  If anyone does not know what parts of Canada look like watch this and drool!  Well done!
