Late Arrival. Another Day.

I decide that with such a late arrival last night that I really want to spend time with Ken and Robin before heading north. Ken and I do a bunch of errands and he helps me figure a better packing strategy. I felt that the bike was a little “back heavy” on the trip up. […]

Gone.

I carry the panniers to the bike. Then the dry bags. Then the tank panniers. And the tank bag. I stuff items of questionable purpose or utility into the top box. Loose ends get stashed in the tank bag. Other items are jammed into the pockets of my riding jacket. I gotta get out of […]

My time for the last couple weeks was focused on moving out of my house and selling my possessions. If my motorcycle had feelings and could express […]

We order room service from the fine dining restaurant. Swim in the pool and chill in the Jacuzzi. We gaze over the Pacific. The white water […]

Ready Or Not?

Am I ready? My mind races through the long daunting list of to-dos that put me on edge. Friends and acquaintances that catch me either on the phone or around town grin ear to ear when they see me. “You must be so excited!” Others say “I don’t have to tell you to enjoy life […]

Not Ready.

I don’t think I’m ready. Though I’ve been working on this plan for more than two years, I realize that nothing can prepare you for the dichotomy of feelings and thoughts that run through my body. Excitement and Anticipation and sadness and loss I drove down the street where a new family has moved into […]
