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!!

HA! That's my list.

Everything is about modifying available resources to fit the need at hand. MoBill modified mine, and I'm sure it will go forth and morph to suit other users.

Good planning always requires good red wine. Have been enjoying your TR, Radioman and looking forward to the next chapter. Thanks for all the work you put into it.

I heard you were with your Portland harem today.

No photos?

Hope you have time to get packed with so many distractions.

Have fun and look forward to the next installment.

Take care, Skip

Part of the reason I decided to do a Stop over in Portland was that I will be turning the Big Five-O this week!

My friend Wendy has a little Birthday dinner at her house, so we had some shopping to do.



Being in May, we decided to have a little Mexican food.



and have dinner..... With a early Birthday celebration





Was nice to have friends to celebrate. hope I get my wish.

Skip, I was really lucky to meet up with YZCathy, Motomuffin and NoPo for a bit to eat!




I am really a lucky guy to have such great friends in the ADV community! Love getting together and sharing little bits of life!! Cathy was in town for the day, and it was great to see her, and also to pick up her phone and give Skip a hard time Lol3

My sympathies.

I'll ask you the same question I asked Road Rash on his half-century mark: What are you going to do now that you are too old to ride motorcycles?

I feel great being almost 50. On no meds, healthy and grateful for this amazing chapter of my life, and Adventure.

Coming from an "old" guy like you Mortimersickle, i'm glad to say that I hope to be Briskly riding for a long time

the best part about the 50's is you can (hopefully) afford the bikes you could only dream about in the teens, 20's, 30's and 40's

Happy birthday to mark, and everyone else that chimed in here. From someone else in the "lower" 50's
