I spoke with my fiend Phil who is in HI until Wed so he suggested I visit with his XO, Chris. I called him up and was invited over for a salmon bake last night. I rode over 200mi at 30 mph stopping a total of 30 minute over 8 hrs to arrive just in time for dinner. I wolfed it down and enjoyed their great company before crashing out on their couch. What a day! Today I hope to get a new tire, fresh battery and change my oil. I hope to find a welding shop to fix my broken rack.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 55'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
