About last summer, Part 4-The Big Horns and Medicine Wheel

Oh. My. God. How is it possible that I last posted in February? All I can say in my defense is that retiring is the single best decision we have ever made and that we have been living the dream since March of 2015. Between RV trips, bike trips, and the occasional car trip, it doesn’t leave much time for documenting all the fun!

As a reminder, this bucket list adventure took place in the summer of 2015. I considered just letting this story end with part 3, but there is still so much more to share from this trip. So…if you haven’t followed from the beginning, or you are a normal human and can’t remember everything you read MONTHS ago, here is the link to go back to Part 1. Each post has a link at the bottom to the next installment. Go ahead, I’ll wait. I’ve already waited 5 months to continue this saga, after all. 😉

About last summer, Part 1 – RVing ‘firsts’

So, after covering 5000 or so miles in the RV, and about as many on the bikes last year, I was noticeably absent from WordPress, emerging only to post on FaceBook some of the highlights of our trip. Ok, a LOT of the highlights, for those that follow. It made me realize that although I really enjoy sharing our adventures on the blog, it takes a lot of time and effort, and I made the choice to enjoy the moment and capture the memories on film for sharing and reminiscing later. Now it’s later. 🙂

Voices of Motorcycle Bloggers

Looking south on NC 80

I recently became a follower of a motorcycle blogger with the fabulous name of Fuzzygalore, who writes about riding, motorcycles, and fun things to look for out on the road during motorcycle travels, and uses the tagline “Girlie Motorcycle Blog”. How could anyone resist? Incidentally, I discovered Fuzzy through her comments on Leslie’s Motorcycle Adventures blog, Advgrrl. Leslie posts videos all the time, so we know what she looks and sounds like!  Why shouldn’t the rest of us join her?

I have spent almost 30 years in corporate life, with the first ten in the relative security of a large private insurer, and the last 19 and a half in the much more volatile telecommunications industry. Those of you who are familiar will understand living with the quarterly, if not monthly, fear of being impacted by a reduction in force (RIF), lay off, redundancy, or any other fun term you may have heard for losing your job. I was truly fortunate to have survived dozens of these events, plus mergers, bankruptcy, flaming implosion, CEO going to jail, more mergers and acquisitions over almost 20 years.  My husband had lived through years of the same in similar hi-tech industries, although in smaller, start-up companies, before finding his calling in the motorcycle business.
