That really sucks.
This was one of the best ride reports here and I really enjoyed it.

Reading through the "Minimalist Touring Thread" and saw a post by Macadam with this RR in his sig. Read through the whole thing only to find of his passing.

Honored to bump this great RR to the top.

I waited too long to check back in on this thread. Shocked. So sad, but so glad he got out there and rode, and enjoyed, and shared it with us. Godspeed, Macadam Drifter.

Just revisiting this ride report as I now have a TW200. Very saddened to hear of his passing. What an inspirational guy!

I heard a saying once, "if there are no dogs in heaven, then I want to go where they go!" I suppose similar things could be said about the ADV riders best friend, the humble TW200. Safe travels in a better place, rest in peace Mike.

Sad to lose loved ones. From reading this it seems he enjoyed his time on earth.

As a four wheel traveler who has been a few places in the southwest and other ventures elsewhwere this RR was awesome. In the past few pages I started to have a feeling in my gut that Drifter's cancer would be the reason all the pics are gone. Even without the photos the report was amazing.

The spirit of the ride brought back one of my favorite quotes:
A camp proper is a nomads biding place. He may occupy it for a season or only for a single night, according as the site and its surroundings please or do not please the wanderers whim- Horace Kephart.

Wander on sir.
