The land of clean trucks and large calf muscles.
We are currently staying at Matt’s great uncle and aunts’ house in Livermore. Burke and Norma are a hoot. Norma always making us feel at home and Burke constantly sharing stories. We are not roughing it, at all. Its been a nice break for Matt to stop battling the wind at his chest, I got to do laundry and wash our dishes. The weather has significantly improved since we driven south. And it’s about 70 degrees during the day here. Haven’t seen any rain but the weather forecast does call for rain tomorrow. I am currently trying to decide if getting a new riding jacket is worth it and necessary. The current one worked when i had four layers of warmth underneath it (literary), and now that those layers have been shed I’m floating around in my jacket . I would rather not spend more money on gear but I’m starting to feel the long term comfort /safety of a well fitting jacket is a must.
