Not long after that we headed out on a 6 day ride through eastern WA, OR, ID, MT, and back. It is a great feeling having him in the rear view mirror, or out in front.
It is also scary as hell.
Late August we're heading up for a week on Vancouver Island. Next year we're doing the Deadhorse trip. These are some great times.
Not to stomp on your report, you understand. Keep it coming, looking forward to it.
Great pic!! so cool when you can ride with your kids. So cool.
Where are you going on the Island? Canada is a great place to ride and the island portion is no exception. There is just so few people in canada. I am amazed at how folks want to blow through BC and the YT to get to AK. The country is beautiful and remote with lakes and mountians everywhere. AK is crowded in comparison.
Would be interested in your plans, and a RR is coming right?
