My biker dude!
Here's Mark in Minnesota picking up his new bike. I think it's a 2003 Yamaha Venture Midnight Royal Star. Even if I'm wrong, it sure is pretty. It's not like he know the names of scrapbook companies. :o) Doesn't he look so happy?! Jim and Ginney, the couple he bought the bike from emailed me this picture just before he left. He really liked them a lot. He drove for several hours on Wednesday. That first night he slept in Ankeny, Iowa. He woke up at 3:30 a.m. and headed out again. He met his Brother Steven and his wife Chris in Missouri so they could show him the land they bought there. He said it was beautiful! Then he was off again. He drove all the way through Kansas, and a piece of Oklahoma and finally decided he'd had a long enough day and pulled into a town called Dalhart, Texas to sleep. I talked to him this morning and he was in New Mexico so he will be home early this evening. His butt is sore and he's had way too much exposure to the sun. Good thing I sent him with sunblock. He thought it would be nice cool weather for his ride, but it turns out that part of the country had record highs. I'm just glad he got out of Kansas before the tornado hit there. Can't wait to see him!
