I am watching your progress astride the mighty WOTAN. I don't like riding with groups either, for the very same reasons but would really enjoy being on this trip with you. My father homesteaded in Estancha, NM in 1917. My first wife and I honeymooned in Kilington, VT in 1970 so I feel somewhat connected to both ends your adventure.
Your suite is ready if you can still stop by in PA. Looking forward to meeting you as is my wife (Mrs. Greg need not worry). We had some storm damage a few days ago in my area but no damage on Bear Mt.
Enjoy this scenic country and that beautiful GS. I will follow your every cheeseburger.--PA RIDER
