Holy crap thats awesome.

A true adventure. and very very inspirational.

One of the reasons i hate living in CT, is that we're just s far away from areas like this.

MJ, thanks for the great RR.... What a fantastic experience to meet Lions  ;) and be able to report back afterwards without any further mishap. Your sense of adventure is great and an example to us all. You again highlight to us all the fact that You cannot plan for every eventuality and mishap, but you can plan to have as much fun and sample the local delights  >:D as much as possible.

Looking forward to the rest of it :laughing4: :laughing4:

This trip would have been a good test for the big Yamaha.
