I’m about a week behind in my story now…

And a week is precisely how long we waited in Albuquerque for another part, this time the diode board for the GSPD. Actually, we got that ordered the same day we returned home, Friday. The part came in on Monday, yet once it was installed we were both really bummed to see that the bike was STILL not charging properly…that ‘s okay for around-town ventures but across country? You need your bike to work right.

So. Monday night we order a whole new charging system for the GSPD  from a BMW aftermarket electronics firm. They say they’ll get it out the next day (Tues), so we settle in to wait. It’s probably not that wise for me to ride alone in all that empty desert, and I’d like for Clark to finish his trip on a high note and at least make it out of New Mexico on the CDT!!

We’re both pretty bummed, and I confess we degenerate into general slothdom…or at least I do.  I read trashy novels to pass the time, take some walks in the mornings, and we watch a lot of movies.

We go out to breakfast one morning, and Clark gives me a tour of “downtown” Albuquerque. Here’s what my camera captured:

  1. Alisa,
    When you have to wait for things don’t get bummed out. This is a great opportunity to step up to the plate and “Be the Teacher!!” Get in conversations with other people that you don’t even know, especially kids and teach them the things that you have had the privilege of learning in other parts of the world. Expand the limited vision that most people are subjected to. Waiting on other people and MC parts, etc. is a golden opportunity to change the world one conversation at a time. If you can’t be the Teacher then be the learner and ask questions about things you know very little about. Love the pictures and the stories each time you send them. We adventured on the Tennessee River 600 on our jetski for a week in July of this summer. AWESOME ADVENTURE!!! Check it out on the Web at http://www.tennesseeriver600.com. We also bought a double rowing shell this summer. 24 feet by 22 inches. We don’t call ourselves “Scullers” yet by any stretch of the imagination. But it is a new adventure!!
