On the Road Again!

Okay, so I lied when I said that I wouldn't interrupt the posts on Chronicles of an Alien. I can't help but bring you up to speed on where I am this week. I am writing this sitting in my hotel room in Daytona Beach overlooking an amazing view of the ocean. For the last four years I've done this annual motorcycle ride with a group of pastor friends of mine. We spend a week covering roughly 2000 miles. We've ridden in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we've done the Florida East and West coasts, we've started in Alabama and worked our way up into Northern Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina.

This year we decided to do Florida again, which is particularly good for me since I don't have far to travel. We'll make our way down through Fort Lauderdale to Miami tomorrow. On Tuesday we'll go all the way to Key West. We'll spend a day in Key West and then begin the return journey on Thursday, up through alligator alley on Florida's west coast. This is one of the most relaxing and refreshing times for me. The open road and the sound of a Harley engine are all that I need to help me focus. I usually come back from these rides re-invigorated and ready to jump in at the deep end again.

I'll give you a brief summary of each day as we arrive at each destination. See you in Miami!
