    Because Alison won't post this, I will....

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ns-wanderland-a-pan-american-motorcycle-adven

    Throwing this out to fellow inmates to check out, see what she is about, and consider supporting the project. A little will go a long way. I have had the pleasure of riding with Alison and following her blogs. First class person, great rider and talented artist and writer. I am looking forward to getting my postcards and book!!

    Safe travels Alison. Cheers.

    Thank you menudovet for finding this and posting it. Its been really great to see the support I have gotten throughout all of this. :beer Until our wheels meet on the road again...

    And thank you for giving the piggy bank a shake :D :clap It means a lot to see people so interested in this! There is so much I have left to do, but the excitement builds each day.

    Glad you all are coming along for the ride!

    Hi Alison,

    It can a bit daunting getting ready for a long ride. Just take it one step at a time and realize that you won't get to everything. It all works out in the end even if you only get the high priority items handled before you leave.

    Once you are on the road you will be free as a bird and all the pre-trip insanity will be a distant memory.

    Hope to see you down the road.

    Kindest regards,
    John Downs

    As Lau-tzu tells us, A journey of a thousand miles starts with a box of vanilla wafers and a coffee at 7-11. On your way soon - Bien Viaje
