IGNITION and LAUNCH!!! ...
Them: So what do you want to do now that you are done with the Army?
Me: Well that's a silly question. Ride motorcycles, of course.
Me: Hey Oduibhir, I'm riding to Alaska.
Oduibhir: Cool, I'll join you.
When? How does Sunday sound? Works. Let's ride...
Sounds like a great ride coming
About time...you have only been planning this the entire 4 years I have known you.
Subscribed of course.
Well Bly (argh!), "planning" would be too severe a term. It's akin to saying, "I'm going to win the lottery." But, yes, I have been eager to do this for a while.
The actual toughest part has been to keep the calendar clear. As the Squier said "Everybody wants you". But I've been obstinate. They may forclose the house, but I am riding to Alaska!!!
Maties, Stay tuned for humor and mischief...
Black NRS Driduffle=camp bag: tent, mat, sleeping bag.
Tan dry bag=pole bag (food):
3 straps to hold load:
Pole bag with one transverse strap:
Campbag on top with 2 longitudinal straps:
Wanted to use the bag’s D-rings to fix to bike, but they are reinforced to pull up not down
Bad news...you got trumped. Those of us who were going to take part in the first part of your epic journey are required to be at the CoS retirement ceremony on the 14th
Sorry to hear you guys are diverted. Give my regards...
Of note, I am using a Motorola Droid to do this upload. Traveling without the camera and computer. Tried to get either Motorola or Verizon to sponsor us, but got no bites. This pic was taken with a camera though.
Soooo, Oduibhir is saddling up to leave Wyoming to join me in Key West to "start" this trip.
Daughter: hey, dad, what's that liquid under your bike?
...burst fuel line...
Depending on your duration, might pass you in route (up or back).
I leave 1 July. Safe riding.
Well excellent! Drop in a photo so we can keep a eye out.
Track "Dieselboy" and "Oduibhir"
Nice setup! Hope to see you on the road...
