move along..nothing to see here

No epic international ride, no dirt, no pics of me camping in a bikini..no camping probably.

This is just the spot where I'm going to catalog my little ride down the coast from Oregon to Los Angeles. Nothing you haven't seen before or ridden yourself.

I'm gonna stop and see some inmates..check out a few things and do a bunch of meetings in LA in hopes of convincing some folks to give me there hard earned money.

Just started divorce proceedings from my wife of 20 years and figured I could use some Helmet time.

I haven't been able to do much riding in the last year ..a neck injury took me out for about 9 months after being away from the bike for four years .while my son was growing out of diapers

anyway i figured I'll do a RR since it's been so long. I'll be leaving in the morning..we'll see how far I get.

I'll post some pics tomorrow night if I have a connection..but you have been warned..I'm pretty sure this will suck

Sorry to hear about the divorce. Been through a few of those myself.

Enjoy the trip. Looking forward to reading about it.

Hope Dylan's feeling better.

I have a few stops on this trip specifically designed for keeping my head clear. I'll let them be a surprise though.

Helmet time should provide you with some good therapy for the stress you're going through.
