Cary’s sister, sixteen year old Julia, arrived safely from Glen Allen, Virgina, {which is near Richmond) on Wednesday … We’ve been looking forward to her visit for months, and had made a few trips to Ikea to purchase things for our little apartment to make it more comfortable for three adults to hang out in … the main things we got were a sleeper couch and a large chest of drawers …

We’ve borrowed a bunch of motorcycle gear from our friend Clay Murphy, and so far Julia has visited the San Francisco Motorcycle Club and ridden on Cary’s 1999 Honda VFR 800 and my 1988 BMW K75s … we have plans to ride up to the Mendocino National forest where we’re going to meet Tegan and Chuck Dobbins and hang out by Lake Pillsbury for three days … Chuck is going to bring his Avon boat and a couple of dual-sport bikes, and their dogs, and we’re going to bring our KLRs … Cary has the next two weeks off from work, and we have lots of plans to visit fun places to see around the city …

We’ve already had dinner at Pauline’s Pizza and went to a work picnic at Crissy Field were Julia and I met a lot of Cary’s co-workers, including Maxine and Kevin, the nice people who own a ranch out in the Panoche Valley …
