    Heading up to Canada this weekend, packing list has gotten lighter. I got into traveling this way because it is super economical, not because I like carrying a bunch of things around.
    Was working on a post what I carried with me on the ride to Utah, will try and finish it up next week!

    Greatly enjoyed sharing in your life adventure. Many parts caused me to stop and ponder areas of life where we create habits of thought and behavior.

    Thank you! With much respect,
    Dave

    @aDave , Thanks for taking the time to read all of that. I am glad it resonated. If you are every inclined, don't hesitate to send a message. But all things considered, so many people helped make that adventure possible. So much love and support from people along the way. Thanks again.
    much peace

    Would you have $1250.00 to spare for a fellow drifter, but I ride a FXR, mostly, my Hondas need some work.

    Many thanks.

    I don't often comment on ride reports, but you said many things that I needed to read at this point in life. I admire your kindness, your humility, strength and spirit.

    Yes, we all could use a little more of that at the moment... or I guess, always.
