This is a story about a young man who is tired of working for the man and has decided to do something with his life. My name is Will and I am about to embark on a motorcycle trip that will take me out to the east coast, down south to Florida, out west to California, up north to Alaska, and back home to Ontario, Canada. Initially this trip was to be shared with another, but plans seem to go out the window. Nothing new here, it's just that it was a bit of a shock when Amanda decided to bail out 2 months prior to departure. Oh well, what can you do? I love her to death and I forgive her, but I couldn't expect her to drop everything and partake on this EPIC ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME! C'mon! What was she thinking? Oh well, what can you do? I just convinced myself all the benefits of riding solo and when the time came, just get on with it. So now's the time. On September 30th, 2009 I jumped on my steel steed (arguably a mule to some) and rode off in the sunset. Better viewing of Ride Report at www.1year2klrs.blogspot.com The time has come! One must follow a code, I all alone must have wits to partake, Of strength and honor, make cowardice erode, And live like a Nomad, my life awakes, When life is so short, don't take for granted, Too long have I yearned the open road, The wonderful things the Earth's implanted, It's about to begin Son! Lock n' Load! Do take your time, don't go unprepared, Things will happen, it's inevitable, be scared, For fear is your friend, it wakes all senses, Keep it controlled or face consequences, So what you waitin' for? Live free or die! We're burning daylight! Saddle up! Let's ride!
