    Larryboy sent a pm that I should see your thread - he was right, you're cool :clap

    If you get up into the Bend area for crap's sake, stop by and let us get you some proper luggage before something gets tangled up in the wheel or chain! :deal

    I've fantasized about what you're doing, but I was raised to be "practical", f that sometimes! It was cool to hear that you started out on a Rebel - I've had mine since January and have been on one 800 mile trip and am setting off on a destinations unknown trip early July (with about 4 weeks to play). I teach and I don't think they would give me a leave of absence to experience what you're doing for a year and if I quit there is no way I would get another position any time soon given the California economy. Have to be an after retirement plan.
    :cry
    I'm glad you had a good experience at Slab City - they get a bad rap too often. I haven't seen Salvation Mountain yet, its on my list of rides for fall, I'm one of the weird people who like the Salton Sea area - I think its fascinating.

    Kudos to you and stay safe!:clap

    Hey Fey, :wave I'm here too.

    Can't let a good ride report get by without subscribing to it.:lurk Beside if you're hanging out with LarryBoy and Nixels I need to be around to keep an eye on the entire bunch of you. :lol3 You sure do pick up some strange friends :wink:.....Hi Rob and Nicky :wave Did anyone invite Little Wan to this party?

    This report is going to be one of the greats and I plan to be along for the ride. :ricky

    Feyala, nice meeting you at Hells Canyon. Looks like you had some grand adventures before even getting there. Looking forward to the continuing adventure.

    Lol, I subscribed earlier so I wouldn't lose the thread and just now read it. Can I just say I WANNA BE YOU WHEN I GROW UP!??!? I did a bunch of travelling when I was younger and you're RR is reminding me why. :D

    East Jesus is on my list of must-visits now. That place looks in-freaking-CREDIBLE. The "Bible" band amused me, the other video was horrifying. :lol3 I read the EJ website, and although the Dude doesn't approve of the toilets I think they're pretty ingenius. :thumb Really am looking forward to visiting there, never got to Slab City on my 2009 roadtrip through there!!

    I'm so IN!!!! :lurk :lurk :lurk

    except for age, sex, and experience. I respect anybody under 5'5" who can ride an unmodified DR. Like your style...:lurk

    Hey Feyala, look how many people are already subscribed. I think there are a lot of people living vicariously through you. Since you are living a vagabond nomadic lifestyle you should check out the Tent Space Map found here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=776925
