Laura and I just got back from Crystal Cove where we spent the last few days with my family. We packed up our bikes and rode there and back. I usually just take my regular touring bike, but on this trip I wanted to break in some toys so I took the Xtracycle. One side had my Pelican case with camera gear and the other had my messenger bag with clothes, laptop and recording gear. It turned my $1000 bike into a $6000 bike :) The trip, thankfully, was uneventful. Although we got some honks riding there on Friday afternoon which I suppose is to be expected. We're back and tired, but also happy that we squeezed in one more adventure into 07.
