Adventures and Accidents in Flagstaff and Winslow.

After days of roadside camping, we arrived in Flagstaff at the home of our great host, Joe and his great dog, Gordo. Food, hot showers, and killer mojitos were waiting for us-what a welcome! Flagstaff is a fun, funky city, with people to match, and just about everyone seems to know Joe. We took full advantage of the opportunity to relax, socialize, and run plenty of errands.

Joe joined us on ride out of Flagstaff to our next destination. . .which turned out to be closer than we expected. Outside of Winslow, I took an epic spill on my bike and ended up with a concussion and a fractured rib. Thanks a million, helmet! Joe and his awesome friends came to the rescue and helped us get rested up and fixed up for the next leg of the journey.
I'm all healed up and in riding condition now, the only things that hurt are belly laughs, sneezes, and mega-hugs!


  1. Geez! sorry about the spill! Hope the rest of your ride is safe!

  2. Hannah,
    Uncle Rob says he will come out and put some training wheels on for you if it will keep you safe!
    We send our gentlest hugs and best wishes for an adventurous, but SAFE, journey.
    Love you!
    Aunt Heidi

  3. EVERYBODY knows Crazy Joe and Gordo the Wonder Dog. Be safe as you continue your journey and keep the rubber down.

  4. It's good to see your face! I'm glad that you're better and back on the bike. Happy trails.
    Sending you kisses.

  5. Hannah, my Hannah,
    Nice picture after the accident! I'm hoping that the other pictures are post accident, not pre accident and that you're well healed.
    Many thanks to Joe for taking good care of you girls. Quinoa and goodies are ready to ship when I get a new address.
    Lots of love and hugs that don't hurt from Auntie and all the gang at the bakery. We miss you!
