So my initial plan of leaving out last week from Tennessee hit a couple of snags. 1. A vehicle I had listed for sale finally found a new home, in Seattle Washington... And being the reasonable guy I am, I agreed to deliver it for what he had received as quotes for shipping it. So now my meandering won't begin in earnest from Tennessee as originally planned but from Anacortes Washington. I was originally planning on heading most of the southern route of the TAT and trying to get out to Death valley before Lake Manly disappears again. Given my new jumping off point and the excessive amounts of snow throughout the Midwest I'm going to had South back down to I-10 and I'll take I-10 to California and then up the coast to Washington State. I'll be throwing my rig on a trailer and then just dumping the trailer in Washington, so if anyone in Washington wants a small utility trailer let me know. No reasonable offer refused. 2. @1956Kmack is buying a new bike in Atlanta and not from the area, he posted up about finding somebody local to show him around. and if it's one thing I'm good at it's being a decent wingman. He seems like an interesting fellow and I really do want to try and put a few more miles on my set up before I head West and given my new plan of trailering to Seattle, my first opportunity will be three thousand miles from home. So I'm going to go ride around Georgia first. I know it may seem strange to add completely irrelevant and unrelated couple of points to my itinerary, but this is what I'm planning on doing, hit the road, see what happens, find new and interesting people, and just generally go where the wind blows. I won't ruin Kmack's surprise, but let's just say he's picking up a bike that I seriously considered buying myself. I will probably trailer my setup down to Atlanta, leave it parked and ride around Georgia down to Savannah and then load back up and head out from Atlanta.
