Well, for those of you expecting a blog entry from Norway... Well, we didn't quite make it.  The day we were trying to fly to Norway the flights from Denver to Newark booked up and then even the flight to Oslo booked up... We could have waited another couple days and probably gotten on a flight, but pushing it back a few more days would have made things very tight for our summer plans in Colorado... And after three months of traveling, to be honest, we both were very happy to just be going to New Hampshire.... So here we are.

Gordon's Grandfather and wife, Betty picked us up at the bus station in Concord after a flight into Boston the day after the bombings... Thankfully we weren't flying American Airlines (that was the day AA grounded all flights) and thankfully we weren't flying today (Since the whole city of Boston is shut down today).  Nope, we got in without too much hassle... Just a little delay getting into Newark because of the snowstorm in Denver... We did miss our connection to Manchester, NH so we rerouted and decided to fly to Boston from Newark.  One benefit of flying standby!  You can change your flight plan! SO instead of arriving at 10:45 into NH we arrived at 8:30!  Very nice considering a 91 year old and 87 year old were are ride home!!

We have spent a nice, "relaxing" two days at the "Fahm".... Getting the grease mobile ready for the drive across the country... And packing up a few things we will need in Colorado (like our bikes!).  Other than that, we are just enjoying the BEAUTIFUL spring weather here in NH and looking forward to visiting some friends tomorrow before we hit the road on Sunday.

After that, we will be doing some FAMILIAR traveling.... Going on a Yampa River Trip from April 30-May 7ish.  And then it is back to work in Salida.  Hope you all have enjoyed the blog.  We may be doing a random trip here and there throughout the rest of the year, but that is pretty much it for Long Term Travel for Jen and Gord!

Love to all!
The Bassetts!
