DALLAS to CONNECTICUT




Well we sure have had a beaut time here in Texas! People here have been REAL friendly. Special thanks again to Madolyn and Helen for making us so welcome.

But 3 bits of good news...

(a) we've picked up a Jeep Liberty (not very big but it has a 3.7 Litre 6 cylinder engine) and we've stuffed the Split in the back! As long as we fit in the front!

(b) we've had three responses from Servas folk in Connecticut already. Great. So, there will be somewhere to stay. We expect to take about 7 days to get there. May call on Michael Armstrong in Virginia if we can find him.

(c) caught up with Len Edwards from DUBBO!! He just happened to be in Dallas while we are here. Great to see he and friend John from Dallas. John came out to Oz a couple of years ago.

Still full from the shrimp taco I had for tea (dinner) tonight. Beautiful. It was lucky Fay and I went out and did an hour and a half ride before that.

The lovely ladies in one photo are just typical young gals from Texas. Good to know my charm still works! The other photo shows Fay and I with the "folded" tandem ready to put it into the trunk of a car for the first time. That's Ron's tandem in the background. (Keep training Ron! Bike Across Kansas is getting closer!)

Peta and Jeremy (2 of our kids) should have touched down in Chicago today. Maybe some of the Aussie cricketers might think about doing some sight-seeing rather than playing cricket!!

Hiya Keasty! I'm so sorry I haven't been by in a while. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog while you're out traveling the world. You're a true gentleman.

Greetings.

We had a great EASTER here. Attended Sunrise service, then ate a huge breakfast. And a nice lunch. Hot and windy here again (still).

Have fun,
Ron

Your journey is facsinating! Jennifer and I are in the same area (south Dayton). I'll stop by more often to see your progress across these united states. I confess, I've been remiss...
