Well, the preparations have begun. This year we’ll be heading to Mount Rushmore. We’re leaving a little later this summer due to job schedules so we’re hoping it’s not going to be too hot. However, it can’t be worse than it is here at home – 105 degrees yesterday. Ugh.
We changed tires yesterday. Tom gave the bike a bath and checked everything out so our ride is ready. Now we just have to pack! The living room has been transformed into a staging area:
