Marks trip home would be a little damp.

It might start kind of like this:



But, it probably wouldn't end well.

T-Minus 13 days to departure to India

My head is swimming with all the things to wrap up before I fly to India on May 15th!

Have lots of things to handle before I go, besides repacking my clothes from DC, Bikes, And then fine tune my packing for India. It will be a "Pack as Light as possible Moment".

Will capture some pictures of the final gear. Checking in with a few ADV riders and getting input as we i write.

I am fairly organized, but with all my running around have been a bit scattered and behind in this. More Adventure this way

MoBill forwarded his "list" to me. ......................... Someone is organized

I stole that list from Anders Green...and added to it....needs some De-Andersification, I don't even know what some of those cards he's mentioning are. LOVE you anders, your list is great. I AM organized...I just steal ideas from peeeples smarter than me.


AND how do you go ANYWHERE without TP and wipes on your checklist Make sure you add that. I won't take all that stuff.....most of it in blue stays home.

And my CSM just brought me a parting gift...well loan.



CANT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!

I have one of those... exact same model as a matter of fact. I think it a good idea to take along with you. Hi'ya Mark . I been out riding trying to catch up on your whirl-wind timeline. You are one busy guy. My daughter is graduating about the same time your outbound. I would have like to see you again if for nothing more than lunch; just not working out. So, are you coming back to Portland after India before returning to SA; maybe then. Safe journey to the both of you. I'm giddy for this leg of the trip..

T-Minus 10 days before departure to India

The days are moving quickly as I get ready for the next part of my Adventure!

Running around trying to get all the little details, including new Radioman Luggage tags made, and Emergency Contact information tags for my riding gear!



My best friend Brooke and his wife Bella, came down to hang out for the weekend. We will be doing a bit of celebrating.



My buddy Brooke sharing something he is working on for Radioman........



Still working on some Plans for India, although most of the trip will come together as I travel to India and figure it out :)

Thanks to a few Inmates that have been to India and giving me input about routes and things to see!




The updates will be a bit limited in the next ten days as I am focused on getting ready. May 15th, the Ride Report will be back in full swing!!
