After lots of changes in my personal life and an obscenely cold winter things are finally starting to warm up and I’m getting excited to get out there and explore new places this summer. With my position at work I’m able to work a compressed schedule and have every other weekend as a 3 day long weekend allowing me to go farther and see more without having to take vacation days. I’ve been pouring over Google maps looking for new places to visit and exciting new routes to visit places that I’d like to go to again. I have little winter maintenance to do on my motorcycle other that wiring up my new GPS unit and putting on some new rubber. That process should start as the temperatures in the garage climb and funds allow me to buy some new tires.
This year I’m hoping to do a “Big Trip” somewhere. I haven’t decided between East or West coast or heading south to do the Blue Ridge parkway and the Tail of the Dragon. I am even considering attending some Horizon’s Unlimited meetings as far away as Colorado! I’ve also been thinking about hiking either the Long Trail or the Rideau Trail which will get me in the woods for between 1 and 4 weeks.
Either way there are adventures to be had and I’m going to have them. See you out there !
