| On June 2nd I left Auburn, AL for a three
week solo motorcycle trip and headed west. My goal was Montana,
Idaho and Wyoming, an area I have been fascinated with since childhood
but have never visited. I feel there is no better way to explore
new places than from the seat of a motorcycle so since I had a little
time to burn, I loaded up the bike and pointed it towards the setting
sun. The map (clickable links) above shows my track for the
trip (I went counterclockwise) and the little tent icons indicate
my camping spot each night.
I kept a journal as an aid to my aging memory and took a few
pictures. Through the words and images on the following pages
I hope to convey some sense of what I experienced during the trip.
Obviously, I can only brush the surface but this is a good thing.
If this were not the case then there would be no real reason for
you to take a trip of your own. Get out and see the world! Life
is short, you only live once and the journey IS the destination.
This writeup is for family and friends and if you enjoy reading
it a fraction as much as I enjoyed the actual trip, the work will
have been worth it.
