NYC to ASPEN, CO and back via Vespa

Leaving the hot asphalt of the city for the Rockies, via Blue Highways, and back, leisurely. I'm 68, so it's probably now or never. Aiming for 250/300 miles a day, but definitely not pushing it. My daughter teaches in Aspen, so I have a place to land, but the rest is winging it.........
