Hi All, This thread is in sync with the following threads. "PR for International Relationship" (planning and stuff) "Chanderjeet Explores the U.S.A." (the Ride report) ======================EDIT STARTS===================== Day 1 : Everett, WA to Woodland OR Tomorrow is the day for which I and many people have waited for close to three weeks now. The bike is ready, the bags are all packed, the gear is in the excitement is flowing and im ready to roll. The PNW guys treated me like they have known me for years. NWGS, Fat Toney, Mr.Cob, PacWestGS, MexiFin, Toothy, Helikron, Johnny Drunkard have been very nice and helpful. This is the beginning of a trip which potrays a true ADV spirit. It has begun... ======================EDIT ENDS===================== Since the idea behind this trip is to meet as many people i as can and expplore USA as much as possible, i need you help and suggestion to work it out. One such idea is to to dedicate some places as hub and post a date around which i will ride into that places and there we can have small gatherings. As i post this, i am thinking whether the moderators (GB, Lobby) could suggest a better way to do this. There a lot of people that i WANT to meet. But I know its better that i post about my tomorrows (-->) destination today(<---), so that it gives everyone enough time to decide, pack, ride. So far the plan is..... 2-Oct: Toothy will get the stuff and pick me up and we along with Helikron would ride up to Johnny Drunkards tonight. Tomorrow I start out to Portland/Woodland. More info coming up in some time. I would appreciate if you would post all the picture in the the "Chanderjeet Explores the U.S.A." (the Ride report thread) so everyone can plan the ride easier and clutterfree. So if you guys think its OK, lets post all to the suggestions of route, destinations, lodgings in this thread. Camrogreg, GTomic everyone else.........help me out with the routing please.
