On The Road Again

Kev and Donna are about to set off on a ride up through Maine and down the St. Lawrence River, finishing with a loop around Lake Ontario. Along the way, we'll visit every New England state, take a ferry across the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and hit the major Canadian cities on the way to Niagara Falls. There, we will have a romantic pause for a night (that's what you do in Niagara Falls, right?) before threading through the Finger Lakes on the way home. There's a lot of cool stuff planned, but you'll have to check back to find out.

Kevin has for years taken an annual 9-day road trip to somewhere, blogged for the world to see (link at right,) but this time is very different. It will again be journaled as we go, but this time, it's going to be the two of us sharing in the adventure together, as opposed to a solo ride. Also, Kevin's mom and dad are riding along, and they are actually going to have their honeymoon in Niagara Falls - 43 years late! We are all very excited about this ride, and we can't wait to hit the road. Kevin and Donna doing what we do best. It's about time.

With that said, there won't be as much down time in the evenings as in trips past. And, the itinerary calls for a lot of long days in the saddle this time. So, no guarantees on how frequent or detailed this will be, but we'll do our best to let y'all know where we are as often as possible. What do you want for free?

Lastly, this blog has been written by Kevin exclusively to this point, and it will probably continue that way with very few exceptions. So, I think I will dispense with the third-person narrative and relate what I see and think, which is much more personal and much easier. Maybe I'll make Donna post in pink typeface or something.

It's Thursday night, and I have a TON of stuff to do before that kickstand goes up. Gotta go. Wish us luck and good weather!
