Way cool for dad and friends to escort you back in town. Way, way, way more cool is that hug from your mom. That there is good memories...treasure them and create more.

Trip breakdown please...what was awesome, what was not. What would be different next time... Thank you for finishing the report.

Blessings,
Dave

Thanks for taking us along and letting us be a little part of living big.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

great read

What a fantastic trip log. I feel jealous and inspired at the same time.

I discovered this thread through a link in the KLR photos thread, and clicked on it when I saw there was pics of Nfld mixed in with pics of Central America, the US, Northern Ontario and the west. I knew then had to be a serious road trip.

What really got me interested, though, was reading about your time in Nfld. I was amazed to see a pic of my cousin Gina in your travel log, and delighted to hear about your stay there. How's that for a personal connection? I'll certainly have to mention your ride report to her this summer when I see her.

As I said, a very inspiring read, and while I won't be doing anything nearly as lengthy anytime soon, I'm anxious to get out for a few over night trips this summer.

Thanks for sharing.

Totally missed this response!

It's a small world. I still highlight the smallness of this world with the story of the random series of events that left me comfortably stranded at Gina's place.

Glad to see that it got you thinking about bigger trips... This one definitely changed my mindset about a lot of things and helped me let go of a lot.

Sweet looking rig, by the way. I love the look of those older KLRs!

Stay tuned in a few weeks for another shorter RR based on ghost towns and back roads of BC!

And I just met Newfiebullet in my driveway. He delivered a KLR to my shed that crash landed on the TLH. The rider requires some mending time to continue but Aratinga is taking care of her..
It is a continual circle of helping each other out here on "The Rock" and ADV.
