I know, it’s been a while, we haven’t kept in touch like we promised we would. We are doing well and keeping busy. After departing from Portland the first of September, we headed towards Texas to meet up with Joe and Amy who were preparing for their Saturday, September 20, wedding in San Antonio. Congratulations guys!
We did a quick drive through California stopping long enough for Bob, Taylor, and myself to spend a few hours at Hermosa Beach in L.A., and for Seth and Jamie to catch the Carolina Panthers game at a local sports bar. The folks on the west coast were very friendly when it came to sharing their vegetable oil.
Walter then swiftly carried us through the hot, barren terrain of Arizona and New Mexico by way of I-10 to safely land us in Comfort, Texas to await the arrival of hurricane Ike. Hoping for an inch of rain to rehydrate our desert weathered souls, we had not a drop. It didn’t take long for us to get out of the routine of life on the road and fall victim to gluttony and sloth. Our diets consisted of beef, beer, and cake…lots of cake, and our minds stimulated only by watching hours of House marathons. We met up with our old friend Wheat Wurtzburger from Orlando, who flew in to photograph the wedding. Enjoying the visit, Wheat has decided to meet up with us on the road again in the near future.
I discovered that I am not the only baker on the bus, when Taylor, Seth and Jamie surprised me with an awesome beach bungalow and private island cake for my birthday on September 16, and offered help in making Joe and Amy’s wedding cake.
A great time was had by all, and after all of the festivities, Joe and Amy headed to west Texas for their honeymoon while the rest of us, along with Wheat, went to Austin. Although we didn’t get to check out the Austin City Limits Festival, it was fun to bike around the city, and meet a few new friends. We just arrived in Houston last night, and are excited to visit with all of our friends at the Emile St. Community Farm. So keep a look out for an update from the farm.
