So as I sit here, the bike is all packed and I'm just thinking... "what the hell am I forgetting?"
After a little over a month in GA for chapter one of the trip, I'm finally ready (or as ready as I'll ever be) to set off. Unfortunately, Tim (my stepdad) passed away, but it was peaceful and I was able to spend some time with him (http://www.somedaynevermaybe.com/201...es-aug-11.html
). He was an incredible man, and will be missed.
I'm leaving tomorrow morning bright and early for Pensacola to spend a couple of nights with a friend. Then over to New Orleans for an evening (supposed to be an evening - I was asked to stay on some vacant land and help out with an organization http://www.commongroundrelief.org
- might turn into a couple of nights). Then in Houston w/ fellow ADV'er JFink (THANKS JOE!). Then the border... Then into Mehico via the Brownsville/Matamoros entrance. I'm hoping it will be relatively slow that day being that it is so close to Christmas. We'll see...
Any last minute tips and/or pointers for someone about to head out on an ADV trip that has been in the making for years? Hard to believe it is actually coming to fruition...
Anyway, I'll be sure to post along the way. Chat w/ everyone soon, I need to go give the bike a once-over after spooning on new rubber and changing the oil yesterday.
See you on the flip,
