Sometimes in life we are blessed with opportunities that are hard to pass by. Such as when Jarrod's dad decided that he would like to shout himself, wife, two sons and their partners to America for three weeks...all expenses paid, and hell, why not throw in a few thousand dollars spending money!

What an amazing experience.. I won't go into details but I will give you a quick run down of our route. Beverly Hills - 3 nights - Hollywood Blvd, disneyland and shopping. Santa Cruz - 1 night - Shopping and pier theme park.

San Fransisco - 2 nights - Another tour bus, ride over the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.
Las Vegas - 3 nights - Shopping, gambling, coyote bar, quad bikes and more gambling. New York - 6 nights - Tour bus, times square, central park, Circus de Soueil, broadway shows.

Miami - 5 nights - Beach, pool, tour bus, hire bikes, pool party, tanning, burning, peeling.
Santa Monica - 1 night - Lost luggage, found luggage, and one last time on the hire bikes along the beach before farewelling America and a VERY long flight home..

As soon as I was off the plane and home, we were out on our bikes. I felt good yesterday, still feel fresh today, and on Sunday and hoping and praying to feel good for the Blores Hill 6hr MTB race... way to make a debut race back in the country!
