UberNoob 1st Big Ride North West Coast USA, 3200 miles, 12 days, 1 broken ankle
I've been reading your report since the first post. I really enjoyed everything, from the preparation phase, starting out on an adventure to meet your dad and, finally, inviting all of us along for the ride. My dad, at 93, has dementia and has lost many memories so I remind him of our good times often. He's still in there but I sort of have to hit the starter button a few times. You and your pop will smile for a long time over this ride and I'll bet you're planning another already.
As an old infantry trooper, thank you for your service, sir. We all rest well at night because of people like you.
PS: You're a "noob" not more!
