We weren't the first to arrive although we got there early. Ray Blair was part of the welcome crew.
I caught Ms. Landry sporting a DFF sticker on her forehead! What a prankster ;-)
So, all porked full of fine food, it was time for some peeps to depart for destinations unknown. I hate that part. Of course, nobody could leave right away. Someone always, always, always has something else to say. Just one more word or one more thought or one more "did you see".....
It was a great RTE and I so much enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting some new folks too! This very loose knit community of long distance riders is simply awesome. They span all ages and what they choose to ride. It doesn't matter - the common bond is riding and we all do a lot of that. Thanks Dean Tanji for putting this together for the umpteenth year! It was good.
We rode north on Highway 1. What a treat! Very little traffic and lots of good stuff to see. A good deal of farmland and agriculture eventually giving way to towns dotting the coast. It got busy at Pismo Beach but traffic again thinned out. Eric was playing a motorcycle "tag" game so we made a stop here at Oceano.
We'll figure out our route for home tomorrow and start riding east. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and not get us wet or too cold.
Thank you for following along and stay turned, it's not over quite yet :-)
