Back home

Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010
Fortunately, Saturday morning dawned cloudy but dry. After a great pancake breakfast (Kate had gone out that morning and picked up gluten-free pancake mix! She knew I try to avoid gluten and dairy––more on that later.), I set off for Seattle and SeaTac.

Rather than ride all the way around Puget Sound, I rode to Bainbridge Island and took the ferry (Is that cheating?) across to downtown Seattle.

I was trying to make it back by Saturday afternoon because the Tours NW end-of-season/holiday party was that evening. It started raining during the last 45 minutes before arriving home, but after a quick shower, I made it to the party. Here I am apparently enjoying my buddy Lance. I seem to be having a better time than Joe:
And these are the Mt. Rainier tour guides:


  1. I know you left Seattle, so where's the update? I love seeing the people/places along the way. Curious to know what's been happening . . .

  2. Brian, I love your free spirit. It brings a smile to my face just thinking of all the adventures you will have on this trip. Reminds me of a couple of trips I took to New Zealand 25 years ago! I'll be checking in on you.
