Step One towards our 6-month motorcycle road trip is complete. We moved out of our apartment in San Diego and put our stuff into storage. We're technically homeless right now, though for the time being we are staying with Sash's relatives about an hour north in a suburban, though somewhat rural area called Menifee.
We still have some business to take care of before we can embark. We're still on target to leaving in mid-April.
Meanwhile, I spent the day today riding to Arizona for Drupal Camp Phoenix. It's supposed to rain tomorrow.
Next week, Sash is flying up to Seattle. Her marketing business landed a contract with a national dental charity to attract donations from big companies like Proctor & Gamble and Colgate-Palmolive. All throughout this year, including during our 6-month road trip, she'll have to attend dental conferences and trade shows.
It'll make for some interesting logistics.
That is, she'll need her formal wear and business clothes for the gigs, which we won't be packing on the road trip. So when she needs to fly out somewhere, she'll have to have someone retrieve her gowns and suits from storage and have them FedEx'd to the hotel she'll be staying at. And when she leaves, she'll fly back to where I am, and her stuff FedEx'd back into storage.
Otherwise, I don't really have anything philosophical or deep to share; I'm too tired after all the slab I rode today.
It is nice to ride a motorcycle in Arizona. Not having to wear a helmet reminds me of riding when I was still in my teens, before California passed the helmet law.
