Hwy 1 Motorcycle Ride and Family News....

  Dear Family & Friends, The weekend trip was a big success. I learned a lot and met some amazing people. I got to re-unite with two cousins I haven't spent time with in years and learned a lot about my family background. I am sure you all must assume my last name LEN must be shortened from something, right? I knew it was but my grandfather never told us what our real last name was. When he came to America in 1918 he was just happy to be here and wanted to be a new person. What I didn't know was my grandfather had a brother! There was another whole side of the family that I did not know about. My grandfather's brother came first and changed his name to "LYNN" ..

A Small Adventure Leading to Many Big Adventures in the Future!

Arriving at the Horizons Unlimited Adventure Riders Event Lots of like minded people to meet.. Mariposa at Night One of the many fascinating lecturers... to learn more go to: carlaking.com Dear Family & Friends,,, I am off on another small motorcycle trip. A bit of a voyage of discovery... and a few days or R&R from work. After 42 years in business I feel like I have run a 26 mile marathon and I am on the last mile, almost completely exhausted, and the last bit is all up hill...... I am really ready to retire.... Any ways I rode Thursday to Mariposa, a small town on Hwy 49, in Gold Country on the way to Yosemite. I am attending a three day seminar put on by Horizons Unlimited and it is all about adventure motorcycling.!! My passion. I am hoping to learn more about photography and better writing skills. I want to make my reports more interesting, but don't expect the spelling to get any better..... bad spelling is part of my charm.. Motorcyclin

I know this has nothing to do with cars, motorcycles, or travel but I had to share this video. This is some of the best dancing and swig era music I have ever seen. I love and watch it all the time... Watch the video, they don't sing or dance like this anymore, a shame....                                          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orhf_Xv6HCA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orhf_Xv6HCA
