South Florida to Alaska, and back - another year, another long ride!

In the summer of '13, I left my home in South Florida and rode all the way to Alaska, in a 10-week, 19,000 miles journey across the US and Canada. Trip of a lifetime for sure, but as my good friend...

Someone said it just right: if you've set your mind to do it, just go, solo or not. You will find lots of good people along the way doing just the same, even more once you've reached the far NW.
