July 4th - We are all packed up and ready for our ride to the Orcas Island ferry. Our destination today is the island of San Juan! We have a tough uphill ride to start things off this morning, but then it gets much easier after we get off the ferry...roughly 8 miles or so! I like that a lot...my knee likes that a lot! Should be a great time on the big island given the many activities at the resort as well as the offerings in the big city of Friday Harbor. We'll go out for dinner tonight and watch fireworks somewhere for sure. Weather is absolutely beautiful, we are soaking it up before the rains that are supposed to come tomorrow. Again, lets hope the forecast is WRONG!!! - Eric
So far, great weather, getting a little abuse from the kid, but its only what I deserve. Nice climb to Mt Constitution, very steep, long, but a fabulous view. Relaxing, getting away from everything else in my life... Looking forward to more site seeing and fun...
Yesterday was bitch'n . . . Jerry, Kevin, and I headed out around 10 am to go climb Mt. Constitution (commonly called Mt. Constipation by Kevin . . . ha ha). My goal was to not stop the entire time climbing up . . . the ascent went from sea level to 2,407 feet over the course of 4.7 miles. It was so sweet, and I was able to finish the ride in 52 minutes. Such a great feeling and I sure enjoyed my Snickers and my fruit punch Gatorade once I got to the top. Yeah, yeah!!! Okey dokey now we are off to Friday Harbor to enjoy a night out on the town to celebrate the 4th and Eric's Birthday. Wahoo!!!
