Holy smokes, I'm here!
I went to click on the next page, and realized there isn't one...yet. Not quite sure how I stumbled upon this particular ride report, but I've read every page of it over the past few weeks - sometimes one page at a time, sometimes 30. Pretty amazing journey you're on here, Rman - thanks for bringing all of us along. I also read the backstory that ultimately led you to where/who you are today, and am sorry for your loss. Your positive outlook on life is both inspirational and infectious.
Consider this my first "real" post; the other two I've made were just "Dibs - PM sent" messages as I buy gear for my first ever ADV ride here in a few weeks.
