    Dork, congrats on your ride. I don't think a ride like yours should have a plan, a set length or any other contraints (other than $$$). You go on a ride like that to search for what's important in your head and your heart. On your trip you discovered that. Now hold on to that feeling as long as you can.

    Everyone has a question (and I do as well).........

    What did you use that blue bucket you had tied to the Jed Clampet heap of provisions you were hauling around for?

    He stores urine from all the beer and then uses it to put out the camp fire.

    I promise you that if Squeaky does this trip, the reports will be entertaining... She just has that special knack for falling into funny situations :lol3 I've been there the whole time watching her ride the last few years, since she fell asleep on the back of my VFR 800 as we blasted through the deer infested woods of East Texas after dark :huh Like many of us, she lacks just enough judgement to stay out of trouble, but is usually resourceful enough to find her way back out :evil I'd contribute to the fund. Just wish I was the one going instead :cry If she shows up on your doorstep, hide your bike keys!! She has a way of getting rides on anything she sees :lol3

    I never steal, I just beg and borrow...

    Thanks for vouching for me Scott. I know this would be your dream ride, but that little 'mini me' you've got at home is worth more to look at every day than any landscape, tourist attraction, or party I will find along the way.

    Heck, I'd be up for a couples ride if someone wanted to meet up along the way! I would feel safer out there than being alone in the middle of the woods when the strange man with the dog showed up at my tent... :eek1

    It's started already. Just don't post any pictures of a puppy-eyed guy looking at you from the background. Not unless he's riding with you anyway.

    It's Sir Lancelot Van Boden on his white steed ready to ride with the Squeaky Maiden.
