Brick Rides the Alps 2015 12 Hours to lift off

Well I’m all set boarding pass is printed I’ve check-in. Delta says I’m ready to fly! I know I am! Just went to bed and thought of two things I needed to do. One was to try to find where to post the “more” like I said in my first post. I did add a comment as I thought that’s where I continued the blog. Jay our WebMaster says no just do a new post. I guess I wonder how it is supposed to be linked to the first post? If anyone knows… well let me know. I might be able to check this during one of the waiting times that there is when flying.

I’m off to Munich!

Brick Rides the Alps July 2015

Well I thought I would give this a try. I’ve never blogged, is that a word? Anyway here goes.

Since before I started riding I read and heard about riding in the Alps. Yes, those Alps the ones in Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy! One day in like February this year I was saying something about my desire to Ride the Alps. So Patricia says, “You should go before you can’t”.  I say, OK… let the planning start. I wanted to see if I could afford to do this. I never wanted to do a guided tour I just wanted to go Ride the Alps. The more I looked the more I realized I could do this.

So then in April I’m almost set to start making reservations I had set it up for a 10 day ride. Patricia says to me, “What’s the most expensive part of your trip?” The airplane ticket, I say. The she says, “Well then you should stay longer”! Who are you and what did you do with my Patricia? So now it’s a 20 day trip. I fly into Munich, Germany and rent a bike and start my ride on July 1st with my friend Chris Jernigan.

More later….
