Today is Wednesday August 19, 2015, I find myself at home getting ready to start my teaching year, next Monday. I want to thank you for the outstanding support extended during my recent ride to Alaska. Without you, these new adventures to share with my students would not be possible. To share the route taken I will use the tracking system from Spot Adventures. It only allows me to save 30 days at a time. As a result, I will post various links with the routes. I learned so many lessons with technology during this adventure. Will share those experiences via my blogs when time allows.
Track 2: from Worcester Massachusetts to the Denali Highway in Alaska

Track 3: from somewhere in Wyoming to Mount St. Helens Volcano in Washington

Track 4: from somewhere in British Columbia to Salt Lake City in Utah
Please keep in mind that the technology using the Spot tracking system limited me from sharing a full track, thus, bits and pieces of it. It also did not share the exact locations of where I posted (very disappointed at that). I was expecting the longitute and latitute of each one as they used to do in the past. Lessons learned, too many for a home page, please stay tuned for future blog posts........
One of my riding stories was shared by Ewan McGregor on the Jimmy Fallon show. I have included the link to the video towards the end of my story. Check it out here:
All of my rides are self funded. I am a teacher on a tight budget. If you enjoy and follow my rides, a contribution would help pay for a night at a campsite or a tank of fuel. Your contribution is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity. Clicking on the FUEL PUMP will point you to my Paypal account, OR you can send me an email at: email@example.com
Hang with me at the "water cooler" : join the on going conversation!
World tour starts 2017
After careful consideration comparing available motorcycles for the world tour, I decided to use a Yamaha XT250. The bike is perfect, small, fits my petite body and light for me to pick it up if dropped. Today is Thursday August 26, 2015 and I am searching for the right price for the bike. As soon as I find the right price, I will purchase and start training on it. This will allow two years for off-road training and how to fix the bike. A smaller bike will allow me to make simple fixes on the road such a flat tire, oil changes etc... I have been extremely lucky during my past rides that there has always been someone willing to help me fix a flat. I may not be that lucky in the future and must do it alone, looking forward to that day......
