Yuk and Yay!

Tuesday was supposed to be our hottest day this week topping out at 81 degrees, so I decided it was high time I washed the trailer for the first time since South Lake Tahoe.  Every time I got near it these past few weeks I got grime on my clothes.  Just opening the door to the trailer required me to wash my hands afterwards....YUK!  

Where we are staying our coach and trailer are in the shade most of the day, so I waited until a little after noon time for it to warm up and then got to work.  Of course, once you've got the hose out you might as well wash everything else in sight, right?  The car we are using while the VW is in the shop has been sitting for a while, and was quite dirty, so after the trailer was 'spic 'n span' again I washed the car, and then, of course, I ended up washing Kate's fiancee's Harley since I got it all wet while washing her car.

All of the endless washing was finished by 2.....TLE had left on a walk shortly after 1, and was not back, so I decided to do my workout and then head out on a bike ride.  Initially I was just going to do my 10 mile ride to the top of Mt. Rubidoux and around Fairmont Park, but just as I was topping out at the summit I decided it was too nice a day to be finished so soon, so I headed down the mountain and picked up the SART (Santa Ana River Trail) taking it down to Van Buren Blvd., then across the Santa Ana River to Limonite, then back to Mission arriving home just after 4.  That's the farthest I have ridden in one day in a long time, but the legs and lungs were up to the task.

On a side note, when the SART is finished it will stretch 100 miles from the San Bernardino Mountains to Newport Beach, CA.  Right now, as you can see from the map below, there are sections that have not been completed.  It is a great local resource, and TLE and I have ridden literally hundreds of miles on this bike path.  We love the section that runs from Yorba Linda down to Newport Beach (31 miles each way) and have ridden it often over the years.

I got a call from Joel's Automotive just after I returned advising the car would be ready for pickup Wednesday, which is perfect since we need to drive into Rancho Cucamonga for an optometrist appointment the same day.

Around 5 TLE informed me I was grilling the Pollo Asado, which I was more than happy to do because that means I am getting tacos for dinner.....YAY!
