I believe there are loads of people with the problem of no friends or those who can and will ride 3k miles too see a ice cream place or Alcatraz or a glacier. It is allot for a normal person to commit 3 or 4 weeks away from family to ride to Canada for a strong Budweiser or whatever it is you are chasing. I am and have been happily married for almost 20 years and my wife understands and supports my wandering soul ways. I am very lucky and since the original post have went back to Nevada and California to ride my "dirt bike" with strangers. Had a blast saw a brothel rode on a dry lake bed, walked deep into a abandoned mine.
