Long retirement ride, eh? Cool. Are you also going to the MOA National rally in Salem OR? I am.
Once I drop my wife off at the Denver airport (on 6/16), all bets are off. Not sure what direction I'll go from there. I'm currently growing some facial hair and I might get a tattoo along the way...

BTW, not worried about being too warm in the shorts. I've been wearing body armor (in the steamy SE) for nearly 30 years...
