I'm in.
I hear ya too. I'm 26 and have been at the same civil engineering firm for 6 years. I have no idea what I even want to do anymore but deep down I think we all know it involves two wheels and a road. If you make it out towards Chicago you have a free place to stay as long as you want. Free beer too, I have a 2 barrel brewery in the basement.

This looks rewarding, but daunting on that bike. Please keep us updated on how it treats you. Good luck!

Enjoying your

sense of humor. The picture of the young donkey is priceless.

My experience has taught me that the things that go really wrong are the memories you keep for life.

Your ride reminds me a little of a member called Clifnotes. But you are miles ahead on preparation..

Ride safe--subscribing now..

Nice start on your RR



This has my vote for front page as previously mentioned by another inmate. The duke should bring you many memories (hopefully many good ones but if not at least it looks great).

You have no idea?

Nobody does.

Not really.

(Least of all those protesting to the contrary.)

Ride on...

I'm expecting him at any time now. And I expect he'll be very wet.

pne made it here, safe and wet. Hopefully I sent him off a little warmer and dryer.

Nice to have met you, looking forward to some posts and pictures about your trip!



Looking better after a few beers and some sleep.
