Since Willi didn't get out last weekend while in Arlington, I took him back down to DC. He spent most of the day hiding in my tour pack but I did get a few of him. It was just too cold for him to travel about the National Mall.

This weekend Willi was yelling at me saying he wanted to go out. Saturday didn't work so I decided to take him Sunday. However, I wasn't riding Sunday, I was going flying.

Here is Willi posing with the plane

Seems like Willi doesn't mind flying... Check with him and see if he might like to see Oz... if I do make it over in June and Willi is in agreement I'd be happy to escort him through Australian customs and then show him around the sights of North Queensland for a bit.

He enjoyed the flight and I am sure he'd like to head to the land down under!

This week Willi had a most excellent adventure. He joined me on a whirlwind trip to Florida to ride in the Iron Butt Association's Florida Mountain 1000. Unfortunately, he didn't like the sun too much so he stayed hidden most of the time. Plus the trip was a little fast paced since we put 3200 miles on the sporty in 4 days.

Here he is at 5am with the bike all packed and ready to head down to Florida



He popped his head out when we entered TN. One may question whether TN is on the way to FL from Philly, but it was for us!



During the ride Willi decided to check out the highest point in Florida



And on the way home he just had to say good bye to the sunny warm weather in Florida



And what is a trip on I 95 without a stop to see Pedro at South of the Border at the NC and SC border



And having some fun while we were stopped



Thats all for this trip. Hopefully he will get out more the next trip

It looks like Willi will soon be off to Georgia. However, before he left he wanted to visit the Olympia so I took him down with me on Sunday and showed him a few of the areas.

Here he is just off the gangway onto the ship



And resting in "Officers Country" where the Sr. Officers cabins are



Here he is checking out the Officers dining area



Checking out one of the 6 pounder guns that are on this deck



Up on the berthing deck he wanted to check out one of the 5 inch guns



And of course he had to show off a bit



While we were there he paid a visit to the head



And of course he had to wash up



Here he is checking out the Captains cabin. He was surprised to see a big gun in the both the Captains cabin and Admiral's quarters



Here he is checking out the galley



Another angle of the galley



And then he got tired so he crashed in one of the enlisted man's berth



Unfortunately that is all he got to see. When he woke up it was time to leave.

His next adventure before he leaves me will be a trip to Cape Cod next week.

Racerwill and I cruised down to meet WilliG and Parrothead in Plymouth, MA today.
We had a great time even though it was a short visit. Willi was smiling and happy after
a good lunch and a quick pee behind plymouth rock.
Willi looking good - me I look like a fat ass version
of the joker from batman. lol. Thanks to Parrothead
for bringing Willi to New England for a visit!
