Upon arrival in Pismo, Tim found that his road bike was missing. Our very expensive bike rack had malfunctioned. And of course, the only bike that fell off was Tim's. The kids and I have "garage sale" bikes. Tim's bike is the price of a small, cheap car. Since coming home, he's been taking long walks at night for exercise after the kids are in bed. He'll replace his bike at some point I am sure, but it's not really in the budget right now. I have to say, Tim handled the loss really well, I was so proud of him. He didn't get upset at all and even taught the kids a lesson around the bike loss. And for those of you wondering, yes, we called Highway Patrol. It was reported in a lane and CHP immediately went to pick it up. By the time they got there someone had "taken" it and not called Highway Patrol. We also contacted the bike rack company and our insurance. We didn't get anywhere with either.

We love traveling in our 5th wheel RV. Our dream is to be able to take a year and travel the country. I'd love to homeschool on the road and have our kids education come alive!
We are in the midst of planning our next 2-week trip! We leave in 5 weeks and are going to travel the Oregon coast. There are so many things to see. One of the reasons I love homeschooling is that we can take off and school on the road during the off season--campsites are quiet and we don't have to make reservations--allowing us to stay longer in places we want to further explore. And we LOVE to explore!
Have a great weekend!
