    6 more days until LittlePosum and I get to ride for 30!:clap:clap:clap

    I'll do a mini RR in each region. We'll be starting and ending here.
    Each region will be linked together as we ride throughout the country.
    No real plan or schedule. Take it day by day and see where the less traveled roads lead us.:clap:clap:clap

    After the PNW the ride goes to The Rockies

    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=986224

    Then to the Texas and Gulf States region

    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=949730

    Then the Southeast.

    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=949888

    Then the Northeast.

    Thanks Scott! We will be posting from the road. I'll post in each region that we're traveling through and link each one together. Hoping to get some good local intel as we travel!

    A young couple stayed with us last night from the Tent Space thread that were on their first big journey together. They're headed your way in this morning's rain.....

    We will. Thank you all that made it. YOU are the ones that made it special!:freaky
    I wish we could have had an open invite. There was well over 100 attending with just family and friends, we couldn't host much more than that.

    I'll share a couple of my favorite pics. Thank you Kurtw for taking such amazing photos!

    Awesome pictures! He got every aspect of the event,,, and the day!:deal
    Thanks for the link! I'll remember this event and cherish it for a long while!
    I smiled and laughed 'til my face hurt,,AND!,,I actually got up and danced!:huh:huh

    Being back "home" in the area really jerked my chain, and I felt a special 'connection' with the scene. Everything went along perfectly, and when Tony Smiley had EVERYONE up and dancing it was the pinnacle!
    All those great folks are ADV family whether they know it or not!:clap
    I didn't take any pics with my camera, but I got a few with OMB's,,maybe he will share some.:1drink
    Love you kids!,,and,,"Be kind to each other at least once a day." My Mom!

    I am definitely IN and looking forward to your amazing journey!

    Thank you both for sharing your special day with Angela and myself. We had a lot of fun and truly enjoyed meeting a bunch of great people.

    Have fun and take lots of photos! :deal

    P.S. I thought Kurt's photos did a great job of capturing The Day! You can tell EVERYONE was having a great time by all of the smiles. :clap

    Here is a very rough version of our first week. But like I said, no schedule, and we don't have to stick to any plan.
    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Ben...2!1d-95.992775!2d36.1539816!2m1!1b1!3e0?hl=en

    Many will think we're nuts for hauling ass through the western states. But we live here, ride Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada whenever we want, and can take 2 weeks off every summer for Colorado and Utah.
    East of the Rockies is harder to find time.
    Once we hit Arkansas we'll slow the pace down a little bit. 300 miles a day average is very doable for the 2 of us, especially with the long summer days.
