Yes, I did make it home but not before getting SMOKED by a small faction of the Canadian contingent

Before I go I thought I would post a photo here. I told the person I would put this up. He was afraid if I showed his front side his rough movie star good looks would be to much for the camera..................so here he is !



I will be posting my other photos around, but most will be in my gallery by the end of this week.

Got home today (Sunday) at 2:30 PM. Temps dipped a bit so we weren't too hot for the 350 mile final leg from St. Louis.

Good to see you made it home Dave! It was a pleasure meeting you at Port Orchard and again on the way home at the camp ground on Rt 12 before Missoula. Funny how you and Dusty rolled in to the same place like you did. Made my day! Thought we might meet up again the next night at Wood River but the campground was full when we got there so we went on to the next one and got the last site. Not sure where you guys ended up.

I am still sorting through things and have to be back at work in the morning so it will probably take me a few days to get some pics up.

Awesome trip in all respects!!

I knew you'd make it. Glad you skipped AZ this time? Looked like you spent most of your time at N4 going back and forth to SeaTac airport.
Not too shabby for a guy who hadn't been on a bike two years ago.

Finally escaped the wet of IA and spent the night at a beautiful little campground in the UP,on the shores of Lake Michigan, near Rapid River, MI. and got my gear dried out and the mud off of stuff for the most part. It rained again the morning I left, but when I was up at 4am,I saw the lightning and got the tent and stuff packed up before the rains came again and waited it out under my tarp. Iam currently atthe Mickey D's in Newbury, MI. Big contrast in the weather this morning, as I had to put on my heated jacket liner under my mesh jacket. (46*) Glad to see the end of those high temps.

Should be home by 6pm this evening and will just have time to wash the mud off of my gear, do a load of laundry, attend to a few matters and am then off for Ottawa.

Bryan, we wondered what happened to you after 5 minutes on I90. We figured you were just 'hanging back'.

John, - we saw that you and Nancy had pulled off in Darby(or was it Hamilton,MT) for breakfast and we ended up at Craters of the Moon NP for the night.
