Bike is packed and everything is installed

Trans America Trail

It’s been a long time coming... I’ve been dreaming of this trip since 2012. Very soon, Paul, one of my business partners, and I will embark on the trip of a lifetime!

We will start on the beach in North Carolina and end on the beach in Oregon. Estimates of about 6,700 miles will have clicked off on the odometer before we get to the beach in Oregon!

We had a small test run back in May with John, the third owner of our company. More updates will be posted soon

SPOT Satellite Tracker

When traveling on an adventure... it is good to share your location and progress with family/friends. Especially when we take the two month trip in 2020. Anyways, I've got the SPOT Gen3 tracker (www.findmespot.com) and I've got it setup with 2 min 30 second tracking and the ability to call for help even in remote (no mobile phone access) areas.

Here is an example of the type of information that can be provided - in fact, you can refresh this post at anytime, it should provide my "latest and greatest" location.

Smoky Mountain 1000

Getting ready to leave for the SM1000. Here is the link to the spotwalla - allows you to keep up with our progress.

Highest motorable pass in the world?

Manali to Leh.

Sounds interesting. Maybe 2021. Over 18k ft above sea level across the Himalayan mountains.
