The Initial Feed

Hello, everyone! This is my first blog ever. At this point there’s nothing special about it. In the coming weeks I’ll be posting the progress of my motorcycle trip across the United States. I’m starting in Reno, NV and ending in Chicago, IL and back again. I know what you’re thinking “Big wow, Jack, Chicago…pfff!” And I’ll say  “Between Reno and Chicago is Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, several old friends, Mt. Rushmore, Devil’s Tower (my nerd mecca), Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and a good portion of Texas!” Stay tuned!

    Hey, Jack,
    Your plan sounds cool! I am so envious! You may not believe it, but when I was a college kid, I travelled all over Taiwan by motorcycle. (Well, Taiwan is a small country, so my trip might not be as “epic” as yours.) My motorcycle is not like yours, but it was actually very powerful! I actually miss traveling by motorcycle. I know how great it would be. Basically, you can stop anywhere you like while traveling. If you drive a car, you can’t do it!!

    Totally cool, Jack. When is your trip?

    • heartajack says:

      I leave June 21st. I have no idea how long it takes to get anywhere, so I’ll be playing it by ear. I’m not in a hurry to get anywhere, but I have 3 weeks or so to do it in.

    I got the time and the desire but not the moolah

    • heartajack says:

      Well, I’m running low on the moolah part, as well. I’m hoping to save money by sleeping in a tent along the way. It could turn out to be a disaster, but at least it’s something different. I’m really looking forward to the trip.

  9. mpede says:

    Well if it becomes a disaster please try to chronicle all the gory details for your friends back home
