The sun is shining brightly and it is a beautiful summer day. Jackie, my daughter and I are a few minutes late as we stopped at Planet Organic to buy some human fuel. We ride further northeast toward Sanctuary and as we approach, I see a crowd of people gathered outside on the patio. I am quite excited because I realise all these people are here for the "SteamPunk" ride and have already been into Sanctuary to buy stuff for their outfits. Although I don't see a guy swathed in the Stars and Bars like in the above dream that I'd had earlier in the week.

Even though we'd been planning this for some time(see "Steamin' Along"), I still found myself working feverishly last night trying to attach the lantern to the front of the bike, installing the recycled streamers and a host of other tasks. Mounting the birdcage onto the rear carrier rack was a job in itself. When I had planned to go as a Victorian era African explorer, I thought the birdcage would go along with that theme. I gave up trying to complete the outfit even though my brother had sent me his pith helmet. What to do with the birdcage?
