For me to say sayonara to the green, the wet and the fabulous pacific northwest. In the morning I leave for Montana where I'll meet a friend and venture down to New Mexico where we'll meet up with 5 others and then proceed to Cortez Colorado to do the COBDR. I have my life packed onto my mule and after the COBDR I'll be moving to New Mexico to start a new chapter. Mostly, I would just like to say thank you to some of you FF's (you know who you are) who taught me many lessons, in regards to riding motorcycles and life in general. For showing me some amazing places in Washington and Oregon to visit, ride and appreciate. And also for breaking me in for my first year of dual sport riding. I've learned many many things from everyone in this community and some local events and just want to say thanks. I only had a small taste of what our region has to offer and it made me fall in love with what we have and not take it for granted, but it's time to twist the wrist and explore not only some other geography, but also myself. This place will always be home, but I can't wait to see what else is out there. Thanks again, I'll either see you guys at Wetfest or AJ's Apple Vally Rally.
