Lincoln highway and getting ready for my maiden voyage . . .

I see I've been kick-started right into my first blog, and I'm a newby at this for sure - so please be patient (and send your tips please, please, please) as I try to figure out how to blog and get ready for my first solo motorcyle tour at the same time (yikes, talk about a learning curve). Of course I'm hoping for an audience of thousands but realistically expect this will be a place for my friends and family to follow my journey no matter how crazy they think I am.

At the end of school, yes, I'm a kindergarten teacher, I'm packing the VStar and heading west to Ohio where I'll pick up the Lincoln highway for a bit as I head back east to the coast up to what we Canadians call "The Island" and then home. It's not my first motorcycle tour - I've ridden to Jackson Hole Wyoming(ask me about it)and to New Orleans(did I mention I live in Ontario, Canada?), but this is the first time on my own and on my "prissy" little Yamaha VStar 650 Custom.

In all honesty, I'm a grandmother now (can't believe I just admitted that to the whole world) and this blog is just my way of writing down where I've been so I remember it tomorrow . . . I'd love to hear from you. I'm on the road July 2.


  1. Good luck and have fun.....stay safe.

  2. My first blog response... I guess you're helping bring me up to date, too. I look forward to reading about your experiences. Here's hoping your trip surpasses your expectations, in all the best ways!!
