The Hell With It All Ride & Hang For Hobo's To Find A Cure For Wanderlust And Restore Sanity 2011
as some of you know, some really crappy stuff has happened in my life recently and i like to turn bad into good (for those of you just tuning in, my wife and i decided to split up for good reasons, hopefully temporarily, and 98% of my gear was stolen off my motorcycle, to which this great forum helped immensely in getting it back, and my job and I are no longer friends.)
A few years back, i did a trip on a 49cc moped to see if i could find any decent people left in the world, and surprisingly contrary to my original thought, i found more than i could have imagined.
so im thinking about doing a similar/different ride. my bills are paid up, and ive got everything i need as far as gear goes (i think) aside from TQ/UQ's, and im getting it into my head to haul boogie...anywhere but here.
as a kid, some of my best memories were waking up at 2am to get into my granddads cadillac and hauling butt to florida, and riding on that little shelf in the rear window terrorizing motorists. traveling has been with me ever since.
im going to set off, if all goes as planned near the middle of august and head maybe to florida, hit the keys since ive been wanting to do that for a long time. i love me some key lime pie. might head west, see if i can swim in the other ocean. who knows.
last time i took off with $100 to my name and a crap load of gear i never used. this time, ill probably have less money and gear, but better gear in the long run. im going to do some odd jobs along the way to get some money up for what i need (gas, cheap food) and will be living out of the hammock, stealth and parking lot camping as i go.
in the mean time, im going to try to scrounge up a decent camera so i can go all "shug" on yall and figure something for top and under quilts. sponsors anyone? lol
so if youre out there, and see that im going to be in the area (ill be updating here as i can. not sure if ill take the netbook or not, but my phone can do some things) feel free to come hang with me! would love to meet a bunch of yall
