    One month - 6,000 miles

    This is start of month two of my ÔÇ£Long Ride For Life.ÔÇØ If you just joined the trip, itÔÇÖs great to have you along.

    If you have been following my trip from the start, reading the blog on my website and have stuck with me this long, how about making a small donation or a pledge to the American Cancer Society? Details are on the right-hand column of my home page. The website linky is below.

    In the heart of Vermont

    By the time we got to Woodstock we were half a million strong - oops , wrong place, wrong generation! But our little journey was just as fun and a lot less crowded. Hwy 100 was made for touring on a motorcycle. More good stuff is on the website.

    To New Hampshire and back

    Sometimes you come across a fantastic road that was not on your intended route. ThatÔÇÖs one of the many wonderful things we got to enjoy today.

    Chester and Weston
    We checked out more great little towns and hamlets, and enjoyed more great roads and wonderful old homes. We are even getting great weather. Follow along on the website.

    Along the Connecticut River

    It was a great run down the river road to Southern Vermont. Slower and bumpier than the faster interstate, but much more satisfying. We visited the closest thing to the town of Stepford this side of Hollywood.

    Back to New Hampshire

    We crisscrossed the Connecticut River on our way to Lancaster to attended the UnRally. RogerÔÇÖs campground turned out to be the perfect venue for our get together. Read more on my website.

    Three great days in New Hampshire

    Had a super time with the gang at the Unrally. Lots of great riding over the three days, and the food was pretty good, too. See my website for all the details.

    Into Canada

    We left New Hampshire, and took a quick run across northern Vermont on the way to the airport. There I had to say goodbye to my traveling companion of the last ten days. Next, Mark led me across the border to his home town.

    Leaving Ottawa

    Heading out from Ottawa, I made a quick detour into Quebec. Then it was on to Lake Huron in search of my campsite.

    Zen Riding to Glacier

    I found 50 miles of wonderfulness on the way to Glacier National Park. It was one of those special roads that make you remember your first ride.
