A BRIEF UPDATE
Hopefully before September, probably on a Sunday morning, I'll head across the state of Florida to Boca Raton, to a noon meeting. It will be the first leg of a 2,500-mile, solo scooter ride. I shall be alone--not lonely, just alone. It is time.
Purpose of this ride is to meet and greet people, participate in as many daily catholic masses and as many AA meetings as possible all the way up the east coast to somewhere in Virginia. If I want to ride more...or less, it is my decision-of-the-day. (Great to be "in charge"! --grin! Well, God...of course!)
I have long desired to stop--while on the road--at many of the beautiful churches along the way. But I've always been speeding by about 80 mph. As for AA meetings, there are very few on I-95 or I-75. So the Blue Highways are a priority for this ride. Maybe I could call it "MEDITATIONS: The Less-Traveled Road". That might pass the copyright-law muster.
It is also my great hope to meet face-to-face with some bloggers along the way. Any of you bloggers who live along the Boca Raton , FL--to Richmond, Virginia corridor, and would like to join me for coffee, please let me know by email, so we can try to meet somewhere. I'll be on the motor scooter!
Having never ridden more than 200 miles in one 3-hour stretch, I am prepared for some soreness after a few days. I'll have a nice little GPS, and the most essential non-toy, my laptop--with computer access at Starbucks everywhere.
There is no timetable for this scooter trip, except where weather forces a layover.
I just wanted you all to know what I've been considering for many years, and planning for about six weeks. Any advice from bikers will be appreciated. Zane? Hellllp!
More on this another time, if anyone is interested in it...
Love ya, bloggers!
