This is actually what I did LAST summer (August 2014) so I'll get the entire story posted in a few separate posts. Just remember: I've already made it back alive! When I initially got home from my trip, I started typing it all up in epic ride report fashion for the express purpose of sharing it here on my moto forums. As it turned out-- a friend of mine had just begun the task of attempting to write a contemporary romance novel for self publication in the hopes that it would be the next 50 Shades and she could stop rubbing naked people 12 hours a day for a living. She burst in on me one day while I was furiously typing away and DARED me to write my ride report as a book and publish. I started to do just that-- then did more research on the "what if I actually wanted to make money on self publishing" and realized my story didn't contain nearly enough filthy sex to become a best seller. So my ride report languished on my hard drive for many months before making it to the Internet. Now it's kinda important to get the story posted because I am about to embark on another week long ride. This year I am taking the boyfriend. I am sure to refer back to last year's blissful solo often.
