    Hi Venturer,

    Hi!, there Dickyb. Been long since we last talked. Missing your report as well as Dave's??? We have you been both? Luckily, not much rain and floodings there, unlike here.
    Thanks for your interest in the thread.
    Good rides to you all.

    Memories are what keep us happy. And I can see that in your sentences.
    Why not join me on your bike this summer? Another friend here wants to join me too.

    When are you planning to do this trip, and what route do you want to take? What distance do you want to cover?I am definitely interested in a good trip! I would go with a friend of mine. Do you plan to take a tent or stay in a hotel/hostel? I am just asking in case you want me to bring a mini gas heater! :D

    Hopefully, I plan to set off in July. The route will go along Aegean and Mediterranean with plenty sightseeings. Then I want to ride up to Cappadocia and some parts of Taurus Mountain Ranges. This will be the most of the route and there might be some changes as well. I plan to take tents as much as possible. A gas heater? For what? To cook?
