    FYI - I expect the 'Stickers' question is just something to throw the entrant off from the standard questions. This gives the guard some insight as to the entrants reaction.

    This report has given me plenty of enjoyment to read. I hope your down time goes well and I can't wait for the report to start up again.

    I've been told by what I think is a credible source that the "gates" are radiation detectors, you know, nuke type stuff.
    Question: when you resume your trip, will it be a continuation of this RR? Or a new RR?
    I don't have enough words to describe the enjoyment I've gotten out of following you for these past months.
    Thank you.....

    I usually just "like" posts, but want to second all the good thoughts about your trip while you take a break/pause. If you are ever in S. Louisiana, let me know.

    Let's hope spring brings and end to...you know what, and opens up the world again. I'm ready!

    Thanks for your diligent upkeep on this report.
    It was good to meet you, ride with you, host you.
    Looking forward to the next edition.

    It’s so hard to keep up with a report at the pace you are. Thanks for the effort and entertainment!

    I'd read about non riding Jamie! I know it would be funnier and more interesting that hearing about how my wife's day went at work:)

    Denver? How do I get in line to buy you a beer?

    Even earlier this year I could not have imagined that Covid restrictions would still be in place. I am truthfully hoping things will let up by spring of 2022. That is when I am going to throw caution to the wind and go on my own ride. In the meantime... What the #@$% are you going to do for the next few months?

    Have a great break from riding and the effort you put into this blog. I know your non-riding stories are great because I loved reading your Uber Chronicles thread!!

    Thanks for the great report Jamie. Would like to know about the compact wood burning stove. Have a nice rest.
