Them: So what do you want to do now that you are done with the Army?

Me: Well that's a silly question. Ride motorcycles, of course.

Me: Hey Oduibhir, I'm riding to Alaska.

Oduibhir: Cool, I'll join you.

When? How does Sunday sound? Works. Let's ride...

Depending on your duration, might pass you in route (up or back).

I leave 1 July. Safe riding.

New plan. We are hunkered down at a Walmart waiting out the hotest part of the day.
In Oduibhir's words, we felt like ping pong balls on I40. With as many trucks as are there it might as well be a train track. We are occupying the employee break area and repeatedly saying, "yes, Alaska".






What do we do if Barney comes? Easy, we offer him Pam's homemade chocolatechip cookies.

HEY! Here's a shout out to "Sport Bike Track Gear" who have joined Team Gremlin and our fight to eliminate the cursed beasties. Oduibhir's helmet broke a flange on the chinbar's hinge. Part's on the way. Thanks!


...now some some one call "Phoebe Cates". We need all the help we can get. The latest victim: M8 1.25x40mm.(Look behind the fork).





Fixed by your local John Deere in England, AR. Thankyou very much.

Today we are stopping in Enterprise, Alabama. I spent a few years in L.A. (Lower Alabama for those uninitiated).

We crossed the border into Alabama and I fired up "Skynyrd" and stood up on the pegs.

Passing Daleville (and one avenue into Fort Rucker).

One of my "must stops" in the area:

Mmmmmmmmm BBQ!



Shout out to Myrl and Doug for the hospitality!
