My youngest has a graduation in June next year from middle school...so I will ride back across country for that. This will be the longest that I have ever been away from them. I have a special website set up so that I can show them my travels in a little more PG rated fassion than it get's here... and I sure as hell don't want anyone holding back at this site.
Heck, when people get to the end of life it is not the deals they missed or the money they didn't make that is the source of regrets.
It is the thing they did not do.
Go for it.
Have an extra room and shower in Carson City.
Safe Journey.

You are more than welcome to eat and restup here. We are in Corona, 50 miles east of Los Angeles. Let's talk Baja!

It MAY NOT be as interesting as a stay with BARTKIM!

If you get invited to BARTKIM's, let us know what she is really like..........

Safe travels! Have you considered wintering in Mexico? Your $40 might go farther. Just a thought

Whatever you do, it will be better than not jumping off in the first place

I am selling everything and hitting the road as of the 18th of November beginning with the Lone Rider Baja event and then across the bottom (warm) states during the winter. I will have a strict budget of $40.00 per day to work with, so it should be interesting in that I will have to stop after 1 tank of gas per day. Never know where I will end up...and if I have to make a longer ride to make it to camp...I guess I'll just eat less.
To be continued...
I'm too close to offer a place to stay or anything like that but if you're interested in a send off dinner once Ricky does his stuff to your bike
I'll buy. Heck seems like a little ADVRider bon voyage party might be
appropriate.

Be safe and savor this trip, my friend. These things don't come along but once in most lifetimes, and I envy you your chance. If you're in Northern California, drop me a pm and there'll be a warm bed and good food waiting for you!

Hey Vance,

Congrats on the trip. I did something similar last year all summer. I rally ratted for a couple of months. I think I hit 8 or 10 of them. One thing you'll come to realize is that you live in the best riding area in the country. I've been everywhere but the upper midwest, and the norcal/northwest area is by far the best place in the country for riding.

Drop me an email at osii@yahoo.com and I'll give you my contact info if you get in a jam and need some outside/calm help. Also I got a buddy in NW GA with a sort of bunkhouse for traveling wilbury's such as yourself.

I'm moving out of my place end of November too, so I might be into some adventures myself. Keep us all posted. Do you have a route or loose plan together yet?

Mike

AARRGGHH!!

SO TRUE , SO TRUE , SO TRUE..... What an incredible community we have.... ADVRIDER , UKGSER, HORIZONS UNLIMITED.... all driven by one thing.... adventure ( big or small) Always subscribed to the trust others policy myself, and kept an open house for fellow riders, as well as passing info and advice to make a ride or any action easier.
You go Vance...!!!!!!!

The thing is, I am only bringing a camera and a road atlas.

I know they allow that, but I don't know if they will be where I am when I want to stop and respond to emails and threads and upload pics.

Mike O did such a great job that I am going to try for something a little different. I will take pics of pretty stuff and back roads...but I want to snap a lot of interesting humans as well. (Kind of like Mike did the cars) We'll see.

Jesus! I can't wait to meet all of you people who have PMd me and told me to call when in the area in this thread. Thanks so much. I don't think I could possibly be more than 200 miles from help at any givin point now!

It's a good feeling to know that, even though you are on an adventure...someone has your back if you break down.
