    Well... what else is there to say. I've taken so long to finish this trip report mainly because I never wanted the trip to be over in the first place.

    My last night was supposed to just west of Chi town. However, I thought traffic in the morning would be crazy. So I pushed through for a looooong night. Of course I was super low on fuel and had to stop for gas in the way way way wrong part Chicago. Maybe the most dangerous part of the trip. But made it without a scuffle. Decided to push to the Michigan border.

    ... so, what's next? I'd love to ride to the Yukon, Alaska, or one of the back road discovery routes, or the TAT! Send me a PM, let's figure out some crazy ride. I'd love company this time.

    Just cleaning up the SHOP a little. I almost forgot I had this. Hung it up on the wall... It was my working map on the trip.

    Notice my almost bail from NM heading back home. Got a little nervous looking at the weather up in MT.

    Also the GPS said the reroute into WA knocked off almost 45 minutes.

    Lastly, the "planned" trip into WY was supposed to be into Yellowstone. :(: I really have to get there some day on the bike...

    May try for the states east and north of PA here in the next few weeks. Just waiting for a good weather window and a few days off.

    For some strange reason, your pic is not showing up on my PC but if I quote your message and copy the image link then put it in the browser, it is showing.

    I think my macbook doesn't like your thread because I can see pics just fine in other thread. :cry I'll make my Macbook like your thread somehow and finish your RR later :D

    Pics show up fine on my laptop and computer. However when viewed on Tapatalk, nothing!

    It's frustrating when you pay for Smugmug as encouraged here on Advrider and you have issues like this. I've linked and relinked them several times. I have had no issues in other threads linking when using full version. Tapatalk has been an issue as well, its always crashing on my droid... Ho hum. Oh well it's still worth dealing with to have Advrider around.

    If anyone knows why this thread is haunted, let me know... thanks!

    Prometheus Rising sent me a PM saying to check album settings to ensure they were shared...

    I hope this fixes things.

    Jeff, are they showing up now?

    Awesome! Sorry for the hassle with viewing the pics. I guess I'm as computer literate as I am motorcycle literate... oh well, I'm learning.

    Looks like a great trip, your post gives me some hope of doing the same thing. I went from a 8+ weeks off a year job (government budget cuts eliminated my position) to a very stressful job with almost no time off and little hope of doing something big on my bike. Now I have some hope that it is possible to squeeze something in like this in a short period of time!
