This year I had itchy feet to take on another challenge. I have been stagnant for quite a while in the travel department and needed to get out on the road again. With reality weighing in constantly, I knew I wouldn’t be able to completely escape as I did in 2007 for my big North America trip. I had customers that I needed to keep happy and my servers to keep online. I had an opportunity for some work in Charleston, West Virginia and hatched a plan to ride my 1982 Honda XL500R across the USA.
