I’m preparing for a motorcycle ride across the US, combined with a couple of hikes and visits to friends. The prospect of spending so much time in the saddle on the open road can perk me up in a moment. To cap it off, I’ll be spending time in Glacier NP and Redwood NP, both are places I’ve dreamt of visiting for years. I’ve been on the road since I was 6, but this will qualify as my longest solo trip in a vehicle and definitely the longest on a motorcycle. You can read all about it.?
