Many are called, but few have chosen. Me and 5 other strangers have answered the siren call of the TAT for 2019 sent out last year by @fjmartin. He has started a RR found here , https://advrider.com/f/threads/trans-america-trail-2019-6-strangers-journey-to-brotherhood.1391353/ He sets things up nicely as to what’s to come. I will be leaving Virginia on July 8 on my DR650 along with a couple other guys and meeting @fjmartin and the rest of the group in Tellico Plains, TN. I am 68.75 years young, retired and in need of adventure. Bought my 2013 DR A year ago and have spent the intervening time preparing. Things are packed, loaded and bon voyage dinner and beers are picked out for me and the guys. See you on the trail!
