This photo is from Swan Quarter, NC, the start of our shakedown ride on 11-13 January. The gear here is what we will look like when we start riding from San Diego next Monday. I expect that I will post most of the pictures and Dwight will post most of the writing.
I will also write about Operation Free, a veterans group of which I am a member, that is working to improve our national security through controlling climate change. http://www.operationfree.net/home/ is the website. We will stop to make presentations when we have opportunities. We are using fuel to get to our start, but shouldn't produce many emissions, unless we eat a lot of beans along the way.
I am hoping to have time for reflection, to work through my new life out of the army, and to discuss each of our futures, considering the major changes we are both facing. I better get to bed for the early plane flight tomorrow. I am amazed that this is really happening.
