Amen to that Dave. I've had people go on some big trips I planned only to find out their idea of camping was really camping only if necessary,and eating at a restaurant when ever possible. Weekend ride with a mixed crowd-no big deal,but something like the TAT-you really need to be like minded.
That one person I shared that with for over 25 years was tragically killed in a tree cutting accident less than 2 mths ago. We had just come back from a 8 day trip on our road bikes to WV & OH. Sincerely the nicest person I've ever know. We camped out every night in 22F-24F weather,and never a complaint. Just happy to be laughing by our campfire drinking vodka & tang. Food didn't matter,bad weather wouldn't damper our spirits, he was a great friend,sad to think we'll never go riding again. On a positive note he was a great dad,always enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest, and I was blessed to have called him my friend. I know Joe had no regrets,and I'll be riding that TAT with a big smile every day thinking of him-cause I'm not going to have any regrets either.
