I enjoyed your story and the way you have told it, a very good balance. You seemed to have enjoyed it very much so good on you.

Cheers from downunder...
Thanks mrkiwi, hope your plans work out. Glad the report is helpful.

It certianly takes some adjustment. Everyone has different tolerance levels, you gotta decide what your going to get used to and what your going to avoid. Glad you enjoyed the report.

Yes, I want to camp and ride around that area, lots of good roads to cover in this state. I need to do more out west too.
