This trip has been in the planning for many years. Ever since I heard of the Four Corners Tour of the USA it captured my imagination. The thought of traveling to the furthest cities in the US held a special attraction for me (Key West, FL, San Ysidro, CA, Blaine, WA and Madawaska, ME). I’ve always wanted to see what’s over the next ridge or around the next curve (can you say ADHD). I plan on visiting with family and friends around the country during my travels, which will be an added bonus. One of the most interesting aspects of traveling by motorcycle is that everyone from old men to little kids want to know where you’re heading and why. The old men always have stories of their motorcycle adventures and the little kids just want to sit on the bike. This trip is just one more check mark off of my bucket list. I hope you enjoy my blog and hopefully I will be able to share my adventures and pictures with you as I travel the back roads of our country. My kids provided inspiration for me to go on this type of trip. Scott spent three months in the mountains of California teaching school kids how to survive in the wilderness and Eric spent two months hiking 620 miles from the northern tip of Israel to the southern tip of Israel. A special thanks needs to go out to my wife for allowing me this time on the road and for understanding my passion for this type of adventure. I also want to thank my sister in law, Helene, for helping to set up this blog, because without her you wouldn’t be reading it!
