Excellent report so far I wish I had had the guts to do something like this when I was 21. Great Job on the ride report. Sharing your thoughts and feelings in addition to pictures and a description of the ride are what turn an ordinary ride report into a great one. I thought you did a particularly good job describing the day you experienced the low point of your trip and then the lady at the diner. I'm looking forward reading the rest of this report. Thanks for posting this.
