Introduction: Bill’s Excellent Adventure

My Transportation

Hi everyone. Since so many people (about six of you) have shown interest in hearing about my trip, (specifically family and my biker friends), I decided to blog the trip as I go. I figure it beats mailing postcards.

To those of you that don’t fall into the “family” or “biker friends” category consider this the easy way out — it’s here if you want to follow along and comment, and if it bores you to tears, you don’t have to come to the site. All in all, I think it a fair deal for everyone: I don’t have to repeat myself, and you don’t have to look at my “vacation photos” unless you really are interested.

Details: I’m leaving Monday, May 1 on my 06 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic and heading north. I’ll hook up with my friend Pete Puccio from Microsoft on Saturday and we plan to cover at least part of the Cascade Loop.

Pete doesn’t have that much time off work, so after a few days, he’ll head back to Seattle and I’ll turn south and head down the Continental Divide. I’ll provide more on the itinerary in another post.

Comments and suggestions for places to see and stay are welcome.

Stay tuned for developments…

    Hey Bill,

    Have a great trip. Be safe. Look forward to hearing about your adventure.

    You are a sorry stinkin’ dog. 😛

    (But that’s only because I wish I could go with you… and, oh yeah, I wish I had a bike right about now.)

    Can’t wait to hear about your trip. I’ll be following it closely.


    P.S. This beats the scrap out of postcards.

    Hi Bill
    Trust that you go well
    When you ‘turn South’ you may like to head to New Zealand!
    Bring the bro’s and sit out under the stars

    Hmmm. Not being the biker type, I can only imagine the travails of perpetual ass-hurt (sitting on a bike for hours on end). But the scenery might make it all worth it I suppose.

    If you hit I-10 eventually, you might as well swing by Houston. It’s only 2800 miles from your current location . . . Free beer and a hot meal awaits you.
