A couple Rogues from the Almere chapter in Holland, are headed to Sonora later this week from Salt Lake City. Did I hear you guys complaining about the shitty, wet summer in Holland?!
Welcome to California!
Almere, I wish we were there right now actually...

“We got the 44 out. None of those names appear on the wall in Washington. There's nothing more important than that.”

President Obama awarded Lt. Col. Charles Kettles the Medal of Honor the other day. I won't go into details here, (read his story here), but it is nice to finally hear about a real hero on the news once in awhile, even if it did take almost 50 years. The original battle happened on May 15, 1967.

Peter and Linda stopped by Sonora for a couple of days during their vacation to California from Sweden.
Sun was out, but the heat was gone, and by heat I'm talking about low 90's. Gus and Andrew were making their way back north up the Goldenchain, so it only seemed appropriate that we join them for part of the ride back.
They seem pretty happy I guess...
Shade was crowded
Pit stop in Columbia for lunch and some beers.

Sometimes it all works out in favor of the chopper. On my way home from the beach, another vacation while on vacation, I was able to meet up with Gus, Andrew, Lee, Buddy and Kate, as they slowly made their way to Sacramento.
We took a couple detours, for me at least, that kept me at around two hours from Sonora for the next 3 hours of riding. Great way to finish off the holiday weekend.

As we rode down the west side of the pass, temperatures rose just a bit before settling at a comfortable 85F. A mere 20F cooler than Sonora had been for the past week. The temperature drop only solidified that our decision to leave Sonora, and work a day early, was the right thing to do.
Made me think of Holland for some reason...
Quick fix: a bolt had come out of Aaron's shifter, and we looped a key ring through it to get us the last 10 miles into town.
