Annie and I have been riding on average about 8-9K miles a year. Generally one big trip a year and some shorter in-state trips as well. That was about all we could handle in Alaska's weather and while working. Now that we are retired and living in the tropical environment of Montana we have plans to ride about 3 times our traditional yearly average in the next 4 months. It will be new to us to ride that much, be on the road for extended periods and to camp as often as our plans call for. Only time and mileage will tell if devoting so much time to riding is what we want to do, but our adventure starts in a few days and we are both like 6 year olds on their way to Disney World.
Our adventure start date has been moved up a bit to get ahead of some ugly weather predicted in WY. We leave tomorrow.
