Uuumm.....yeah...it's a disaster.
Unlike RichardM, GeorgeF, or Bobskoot who have been compiling the lists and gathering the items and piling it all together, organizing, reorganizing, packing, and parring for the last three weeks, Oilburner and I only got down to brass tacks, as it were, this weekend. One week prior to departure. And we aren't nearly as organized or ready as the others.
We have been talking, debating, and weighing. I was only able to take two weeks from work. As much as we desired to attend the IMBC in East Oregon to finally meet some great blog friends IRL (In Real Life), we couldn't swing the distance required and still enjoy seeing the country. We weighed flying and renting, driving and towing the bikes, or just riding the bikes, but couldn't figure out an economical way.
So while many of my blogging friends are gearing up and hitting the road for the IMBC in two weeks (July 20-22), we are packing the bikes up for a trip north. We are taking our two weeks...and heading north. We don't have any definite plans, but think we might end up tripping into Canada. Possibly...probably. :)
And I might have plans to meet a few special people along the way... ;)
