Wow, back home mowing the lawn?  At least its long and green, not brown and parched like here in Austin!  It's always shocker to land back into the reality of daily life, after a while on the road.  I always remember to savor all those moments on the road, because they come and go fast, then you have just the memories.  But, I always feel re-invigorated.....like a deep need is met for a while, with anticipation of the next adventure in back of my mind.

Thanks for heading to the lower 48 and sharing your adventure with us.  Glad you all made it back safe and sound, ML's dive off the road could have ended much worse.  Now.....when you get a moment, fill us in on your escapades at the Yamaha dealer? 

Looking forward to hearing about your next adventure planning!

Awesome report, overall. That last day of riding must've been a real blast!

Going back home is always tough for me. A long touring trip is like a drug, and going home there is definitely "withdrawal." But these adventures are so meditative, and so aligning to my personality that I don't know what I'd do without them. The itch builds up after a few months, or maybe a year, and I just gotta go and hit the road. See something new, experience life. We get so damn caught up in doing the same thing every day that it's just so powerful to go out and spend some time - a few weeks, a month, or more - just experiencing life, and experiencing it differently. Motorcycling for me is the definition of living deep and stopping to smell the flowers.

Thanks so much for all your feedback on my product and my business. I'm happy that my products worked out well for you.

Ride safe,

So everybody is now home and the TAT segments are nothing more than a distant memory. It's always a bit overwhelming to put things back in order after a long time away. The bills, mail, phone messages and the grass all continue to pile up while we're gone.

Heading out the driveway for our first day back at work we were greeted by Momma Moose and her new babys. It's not all that bad being back home.

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to ML today. Off of one pair of wheels and on to another.

Well we are late to the party again.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY ML!!!!  Many, many more!!!
