[ Monday - May 25, 2009 ]

No pictures, and no videos.  It's just a matter of taking the 99 Fwy, the 58 Fwy, the 14 Fwy, Angeles Forest Hwy, and Angeles Crest Hwy home.  What can I say, the 99 Fwy is a pain, the 58 Fwy is absolutely gorgeous, and the 14 Fwy was as windy as hell.  Due to the nature of the high winds, we ended up ditching the notion of riding the 14 Fwy and ended up taking Sierra Hwy instead.  This really doesn't help regarding the windy situation, but at least we can eliminate the traffic.  It's already bad enough dealing with the wind let alone wind and traffic together.  If I get blown off, at least I don't have to worry about a car running me over.  The minute we got on the Angeles Forest Hwy, we all sigh a sigh of relief.  Good.  No more wind to contend with.  Now it's just a matter of putting on some clothes to stay warm and taking the twisties home.

As a parting shot, the Captain whaps Nu in the head.

It's all over.  Almost as quickly as it started.  It was a good 4 days with a lot of fond memories.
