BMW rider who retired from NASA

Anyone know a BMW rider who retired from NASA in 2012 and took off on a tour towards Alaska by the name of Joe?
I had the pleasure of meeting this fella at Saskatchewan Crossing on the Icefield Parkway in Banff National Park. I was on a tour of the Cascades, Coastal and Rocky mountains and we rode together up to Jasper, shared a meal and a campsite, and then carried on our respective ways.
He was a really interesting fella, and I wouldn't mind touching base with him again, and I figured this was a place to start.
Thanks for any help that comes.
This is the only pic I have...

No, don't know him but NASA became a skeleton crew here in FL after the administration ended the shuttle program.

I would appreciate it - might even buy you a beer if you ever venture up north

He does have a lot of gear and a Space suit.
