4 Corners '05

July 21st - Seattle, Washington
5,600 miles and Counting

Yellow dots indicate places we spent the night.
We've been traveling 19 days.
Roe had a two day head start.
The numbers are for map reference only,
not nights out.

Roe somewhere in the Mojave Desert.  Early morning heat.

Mojave Desert.  Roe being chased by Woody's shadow. 

Miles and miles of desert.  We left Las Vegas at 5:00AM to try to beat the desert heat.  A new tire for me and brake work for Roe had us sitting on pins and needles until we crossed the desert.  It was a welcome sight to see trees and grass on the mountains in the distance.

Woody sports a new Navy recruit style haircut with the skyline of San Diego in the background.

Roe's friend Mike met us at the local barbershop and took us on a tour of San Diego, Coronado Island, and the Mexican border.  A special treat was the departure of the USS Ronald Regan aircraft carrier viewed from the Cabrillo Memorial high on a hill overlooking the harbor.

Mike is a Navy fighter pilot and one cool dude.

Handlebars are 16" apes on top of a 3" riser.

Corner Number 2!!!


Roe dips a finger in the Pacific.


South Coast Harley sells 4-Corners T-Shirts!
But they omitted Alaska? 
Apparently nobody does the REAL 4-Corners but us!

A beautiful setting off the San Diego coast.
Coast Guard Station and lighthouse near Cabrillo National Monument and Ballast Point.

The USS Ronald Reagan leaves port and rounds the peninsula heading up the channel toward open water. 
  Leaving port with F-18's on board is a rare sight.  The carrier had the aircraft on deck because of a Memorial service the day before.


Close-up of the carrier. 
In this picture you can clearly see the F-18s on board.

The city of San Diego skyline is a shadow on the horizon this foggy morning.

Judy tried to get Roe and Woody to buy this t-shirt in Las Vegas! 
Imagine our surprise when Mike showed up with the Shirt!


Right:  Mike and Roe enjoy a smoke and a drink.
