MIAMI TO CHICAGO!

Sorry no photo... yet.
Arrived Miami... picked up Bike Friday... have put it together... ridden with ALL our gear trailing behind! HEAVY! Went to a great little church last Sunday - Mount Sinai United Methodist Church, 113 S Federal Highway, Dania Beach, Florida. (Near Ft Lauderdale.) Really great.

Depart today for Chicago. We're delivering a beautiful Cadillac there on Friday (4 day trip - about 1,300 miles or 2,000 km. Bought some candy, some coke, a little fridge bag and some cookies.

Had great visits with 2 Servas familes in Florida. They've been really most hospitable. So... on the road again. Our kids (Pete & Jem) are around LA/San Fran, having been down to San Diego and Mexico.

Hey... the Yellow Terror (Bike Friday tandem bicycle) is awesome. Got any suggestions for a name? It's yellow, and it's a tandem that folds and comes apart and goes into 2 suitcases!

Hey you're are getting closer!

Can't wait to see pics of the bike.

Yrs ago, we rented a Cadillac to drive to California. What a road beast! I was nervous as heck about being able to pay for the gas, but it ended up getting 25MPG, so I was impressed.

Chari & I were going to go see about renting a trailer this week for BAK, but its SNOWING this week! YIKES, will wait for a while to go look.

Have you posted your itinerary somewhere and I have just missed it? Not sure where all you are heading next--or is it flexible?

Best wishes,
ron

if it's yellow and it folds into two, what about banana split?

it might be the only banana in Oz when you get back here - a cyclone just took out the N Qld banana crops.

Sounds like Rodney and Marg and Cher B might be on the money with Banana something! We've only taken it apart once and put it together once. It's in the Caddy waiting for the last leg to Chicago!
Snow on the ground here at Butler Kentucky (near Cincinnatti, Ohio). Ron even reckons it's COLD in Kansas!! Maybe we'll head back to Florida/Georgia! Any offers?

We'll get our itinerary up soon Ron... after we make it up!!!
