    Default A Big Loop around the East

    Next week I hit the road for my 6th IBA National Park Tour, throwing in the IBA Lighthouse Tour, and then 2 Grand Tours, GLMC's Gem Tour and Teamstrange States of Confusion Tour. As planned there are 41 days planned, however I will be out there probably more like 50 days. Hopefully I will be blogging along the way and will post up the write ups. Back in 2012 when we finished our 4th NPT, I thought our touring days were over, but then we purchased our 2015 RT-S, and the touring bug grabbed my attention. The loop is right around 12,200 miles. I was shocked at the miles because our coast to coast trip was right around 10,400. My partner in crime has decided to sit this one out, so I will be solo on this trip.

    Looks like a lot of good riding, My bride and I are leaving on our Coast to Coast to Coast ride in a week as the East Gate in Yellowstone just opened. our ride will take about 2 1/2 months, because we are taking our sweet time and stopping to smell the roses. Keep us posted and maybe we can cross paths.

    Wonderful plan, Willie! I think I remember you from the IB or LD forums. Do be sure to post where you are at, so we can meet you. Or harass you.

    Safe travels!

    Have a wonderful and safe journey. Something like that is about 48 days beyond my capabilities.
