Before the Trip
My bike will never be that clean again.... :(
I left alone at 4:33 am Saturday September 10th 2011 to embark on my journey of epic proportions.
1st stop was a mere 10 miles away give or take. I met up with my dad and a fellow ADV'er fox102
Dad split off at mile marker 159, about 1/2 way there.
Fox (pictured left) made it all the way to cola town for another photo op.
Our first border crossing
And our second
We were pretty much just trying to get some miles behind us slabbing it so we could free up time later on the west coast. Day 1 was 649 miles for me. My longest up to that time. I was already enjoying and appreciating my homemade beadrider and Sargent Seat purchase. We stopped in "Land Between the Lakes" to camp for the night. Campground had showers which proved to be a luxury in the not so distant future.
