Okay, I'm in my early 50s (yea I made it), I am single, no kids, wife, girlfriend, career that are keeping me where I am. I have for sometime been thinking of going off on a tour to end all tours, the ultimate would be all four corners of the US, but in between are places that I haven't seen or enjoyed, would enjoy hearing some of your "must see" places.
I have it hanging in the balance as I am also thinking of changing my employment venue, if it doesn't turn by May 1 then I'm "Audi 500."
My current plan is to ride to the Black Hills, see Rushmore, Crazy Horse, then keep going west to the Custer Battlefield, Yellowstone, the Tetons, Glacier, Salt Lake City, Dinosaur National Monument, and then Telluride, for the bluegrass festival. What i am going to do after that hasn't been planned yet. It would be mid June, so the Southwest and South would be in the beginnings of Summer's heat. Might do to head to the East coast and get Maine's corner out of the way, and spend the last of summer along the Atlantic coast to Florida, and get that out of the way, and head west. Thoughts of heading to New Orleans to do some volunteer work scrapping slime and paint in the Lower 9th Ward. There is going back to Texas where I spent a lot of time as a kid, in the Hill country.
If I am lucky I'll figure out how to do this and keep doing it till I'm 70 or 80. If I'm not its a tour that remains in the bucket and some day I'll get around to it.
