Two more days.....

This Friday the wife and I are taking the Versys out for our first overnight trip. Heading to Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Park for a couple of days. The wait is killing me! We are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and the wife let me plan the entire trip. She didn’t know when she told me I could plan the trip, that I was going to take the bike instead of the car. When I told her I wanted to take the V, she was all for it.

Time to leave work and the kids behind and get away……….

I hope to have some nice pics. I was experimenting with the camera on our ride last weekend. Wife got a little upset :-( She "advised" me the trip better not turn into a pic fest of the Versys and that I need to remember she is there. I'll try....

Cool. I was just looking at a weekend trip for my wife. She doesn't seem to think bike camping is a good aniversary present though.

My wife isn't really down with bike camping either, so we are doing the bed/breakfast thing. Little riding for me, B&B for her, little romance for me....

Sounds like a great time to spend with your wife, my wife also not keen on tents so we have to at least stay in a cabin at a motorcamp

Down to one more day!!! Read a lot of tips on this forum and others and picked up some great advice on packing light. Have everything laid out on the floor at home to load up tonight. And my wife, God I love her, is taking less "stuff" than me! She really took the packing light thing to heart. She even offered to add a couple more outfits if it would make me feel better!! LOL.
