Ok, for real now. Me and my Ride - Ready to Roll 6.2.02

So this rig ain't loaded up, but it will be tomorrow morning. All the guys, Mike, Carl, Shawn, and me seem ready. I took the bike out for a spin with the trailer and I like it. It feels solid and stable, especially on turns which is nice.
I'm sure I'm too heavy for this particular trip, but it will be good practice when I am weighed down with warm weather clothing, etc.
Well, not really much else to say. Gotta get some rest. Wish us luck. I am excited and ready to go. It looks like we're pretty much sticking to the planned route. Shawn will probably break off around Arcadia to go North.

Thanks for reading. I'll try to post more pics and thoughts soon. This is where the real journaling starts!

Peace.

Dave
