Hoon on the loose ..... Jacqueline heads to Alaska

After a two week delay, I am finally on the road.



One purpose of this adventure is to be WOW'd by people, places, and life. Yesterday morning when I started out, first thing when I uprighted my bike I was WOW'd. WOW it's heavy all loaded down!


The added weight helps in handling the bike around 18 wheelers, but is a challenge at slow speeds. An area for learning and growth. The best part of the added weight is I'm no longer on my tip toes, but now the balls of my feet. I have better footing!

4/18 starting mileage 15,710, ending 16,215, total 505 miles. DeLand FL to Myrtle Beach SC for some lessons on picture and computers.
Off to the mountains in GA.

Thumb I'm in for the ride...

I look forward to following along, and hopefully my Dad and I will meet you at some point on the way there or back when we go this summer...

Try uploading your pics to photobucket, then posting from there, result is better quality larger pics...

Oh, don't forget there are lots of UPS stores along the way where you ship back what you over packed.
