The week before last was spent cruising around the Shenandoah Valley visiting friends and old places I used to frequent. The winds of time have decayed many of the old buildings I once remembered, many replaced by plastic siding apartment complexes and mixed use developments. Despite the changes in the area, it has overwhelmingly stayed the same. Familiar fields of golden flowers lend vibrancy to a cool cloudy day.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 69'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
