Mar 28:  Drive from Pine to Gallup, NM following part of my pre-mapped route which has now changed thanks to the locals (Branches).  New Route from NM up to KS to be determined.

Mar 29:  Drive from Gallup to Phoenix, where we will enjoy a visit with our son, Eric.  Unfortunately,  we experienced car problems in Holbrook, AZ, which has delayed us 1/2 day.

Mar 30:  We plan to enjoy a day in Phoenix with family and friends.

Mar 31:  Drive to San Diego and have dinner with Jane’s brother Bob, and prep for Day 1 ride starting at Mission Bay Beach, San Diego.Ready to roll!
