Art, Ricardo and I are in Red Bluff spending the holiday with Art's daughter, Margie and her beautiful family.  Today we were joined by thirty of Margie's friends for a festive cookout and celebration.  I have gained another 10 pounds.  Tonight we will stay here with our hosts.

Tomorrow we will depart early, riding north on I-5 to Redding and then west on Hwy 299 to the Pacific coast.  The next couple of days  will have Art leading the way north up Hwy 101 to Portland, Seattle and then on into Canada  by mid week. We have many miles to cover this week so will ride hard over the next few days.
