|"Go west young man..."|
|Approaching the Grand Tatas|
A few things of note, and then I'll post some photos... First, thanks to everyone that came out to visit us in Breckenridge. I lived in Denver for 8 1/2 years, and my father currently lives there, so we have a fair amount of friends/family in the area. Special thanks to Raph, Sam, and Peter who showed up at Hoosier Pass to welcome us and ride down in the cold, torrential downpour. Also, thanks to Nick, Chris, Peter, and Katrina for showing up to say hello. Finally, a huge thanks to my stepmother Tish for showing up on the route three separate times. You've been the definition of 'trail angel'. Finally, a shout out to my lovely girlfriend Jenni who has been incredibly supportive of this adventure, mailed NY bagels to me in Missouri, and showed up to provide encouragement in Breck. Love you all.
Plan from here is to exit West Yellowstone and continue the TransAm route to Oregon. My pops will be flying back from there to Denver. I was gonna hook a left and make my way down the coast to San Fran, but the girlfriend has called an audible and we're now planning a different adventure now. Looks like she may meet us at the end of the TransAm in Florence, OR. From there we may hire a van and tour up to Vancouver together to visit friends. After that there is a ton of adventure planned, but I'll wait to put it all here.
Until next post, hope everyone is living and loving life. Ciao for now,
