        Yesterday was a long cold run through the rain.

        We left the Israel river campground a bit late, and shortly after starting off it started to rain. And then didn't stop. Plus the temperature went from being in the mid twenties down to a high of between 16 and 17.

        Back in 2009 I decided the best way to attend the memorial for my grandfather Jack was via motorcycle.

        Sounds simple... but the bike a Russian made beast with a limited top speed, and the memorial was on the west coast... about 4600km away... one way. During the ride I did a puppet sho
