Dennis, with everyone of your posts here I think now you reached climax, now it can't get any better, surely this has to stop sometime. But it just doesn't. You keep motivating and entertaining us with awesome little glimpses of your life. To think all this started with you getting your dream bike and heading off into the unknown and ended where you are right now is unbelievable. My hat is off to you!
By the way, I did a little trip on my bike by myself through France and Italy myself the week after Easter, and felt many of the things you described. I surely could relate to some of the stuff! Will have to do a longer trip in the future.
