Thanks to all for your kind (and sometimes interesting) wishes.

There were scattered showers on the day. Just before the ceremony started (it was outdoors), the rain abated, so we went for it. It was perfect timing. As we were saying our vows, the sun came through and shone down the aisle, lighting us up. Honestly, we couldn't have asked for a better scenario.

The honeymoon was incredible. We had a 10ft snow base with about 6" of fresh snow during the week. (Smitty, it would have been great to catch up with you in Kelowna :( )

Atlanta was awesome too. Our "rent-a-car" was a 1974 Porsche 914, that Melissa'a friend owns. He also owns two 356's, a fully-restored 1957 Speedster and a 1965 SC. Man, we put some miles on that 914, including a three day, 600 mile excursion to Lake Toxaway, in NC. The Deal's Gap faithful will be happy to know that we spent a full day driving over to and along the Tail of the Dragon and also the Cherohala Skyway.

We've got a million stories, but I can't hang around on here too long at the moment. Talk more soon...

Hi cookeetree-

What a cool and eventful honeymoon you two planned. It is lots more interesting than the predictable "two weeks on the beach" kind of thing. Riding down to Deal's Gap has been one of my intentions for years...and here you and your new wife reside THOUSANDS of miles away across oceans and you've still managed to beat most of us there! :laughing:

Hope you enjoy the rest of your excellent trip...

Tough choice - Cookee jr's or a new bike. The cost of raising any cookee jr's would be about 5 new bikes. Unless its a girl then it's 10... :D




Kevlar7r: I was thinking the same thing. If you can get a girl like that looking like cookee I'm moving to australia!!!

It would have been good to meet you as well cookee, but you have no idea of how much I HATE Kelowna & especially this outdated antique floating bridge, plus the bottlenecks at both north & south ends to get on it. Said "thing" was built back in early 50s & since then population has exploded beyond belief yet they still have this belief of 'horse & buggie' days of forcing EVERYONE to go through their MAIN street (belief ALL will stop off & buy productrs in Kelowna) instead of a by-pass around the city & a good six lane bridge to possibly a four lane bridge into Kelowna.

Besides that would be a 45 mile trip, the battle to get to the bridge, & though the jammed up traffic that so many feel nugging up to become bumper touching to be a true way to drive .

Also none of my bikes were insured & even though I insured two of them on March 27th I have only had one out to scoot downtown to pay my Visa & a few other things with temp of just 5C (40F) with strong winds & rain. Yet higher up in my usual riding areas that would be a mix or snow, rain, or black ice.

Sorry cookee you just rushed things a bit for me & even then would I want to tackle the Kelowna traffic? The Honda Dealer is on the northern part of Kelowna & I only go to that shop about every three yrs though visit the Yamaha shop quite frequently (possibly 3 to 5 times in a season) as said shop is BEFORE the bottleneck of said bridge.
