    I watched Vance's story unfold real time. I had to go back and read the Baja segment for a good laugh. I hadn't seen him in a long time and wish that wasn't the case. You'll be missed, Vance.

    Another epic journey that we all hope we can aspire to.


    Ride on Vance, you inspired many of us to get outside our comfort zones.

    This was the very first ride report that I ever read on ADV. Vance opened up a whole new way of thinking about travel for me and my number of states visited on 2 wheels has steadily grown because of a seed that his trip planted. Ride forever big guy and thank you for the stories.

    I've been on the FB or RL so much that I haven't been around here much. Vance is one of the first ADVers I corresponded with when I started in 2007 and is one of dozens here that are true, true friends. The humor and perspective he exhibited are unique, wonderful. I'm sorry I never met him in person, such is the way of things here I suppose. I'm so, so sorry that he's gone.

    You all have meant so much to me, and what you mean to each other has meant even more. Much love to all of you, and to Vance and his family. XOs brothers and sisters.
