It’s been awhile

4 months? That’s not good. I think I just felt that I was wallowing in my own filth and just couldn’t move on. To be fair, it was/is still pretty raw. I can’t say I’ve moved on, but time helps heal.

So the reason I’m back writing is because I have some grand ideas and would like to make some of them reality. Let’s focus on the motorcycle part of this blog, shall we? I’ve been spending a lot of time on the motorcycle this summer, and I’d like to think that I’m getting better at the adventure riding. The dirt still scares me, but I’m learning.

I met with some people in the last month, and they extended an invitation that surprised me but not enough that I didn’t immediately say yes. The invitation? To join them in January 2024, riding from Ushuaia Argentina back to S. Utah. The plan is 7 to 8 weeks. I’m not sure it can be done that fast, or even that I want to do it that fast. It seems like it would be a trip of a lifetime. Something like this is always safer to do with others, and so it seems like something I should really work towards making happen. It isn’t going to be cheap. I am already working towards getting the equipment I’ll need and thinking about some “warm up” trips.

This brings me to my newest idea. As I’m living in my trailer full-time and don’t really have a place to call home, I thought I might park it somewhere next summer. From there, I might take off for a few months and just boondock my way around. Maybe go to Alaska? Maybe Nova Scotia? Who knows.

I’ll try to keep the blog updated more as I start working through the planning process.

One thought on “It’s been awhile”

  1. Hi Jake. Wondering where you have went to. That ride sounds like a nice trip to take slow. Those people from south go around shooting each other. Think it would be a nice trip to Patagonia. Always wanted to go there. Well keep in touch and you never know what will happen. William (RedBaron) Simons CVMA Chapt 11-11
