Are you sure this is going to be a good idea?? I mean, do they even have Dunkin Donuts in Idaho? And what about Football season, Brady's only got a coupla good years left.... jeez!
p.s. Have fun with the grand kids!
As a MT/CO'an that has moved to Mass, let me just set the record straight... Dunkin is terrible. Every King Soopers, Buttrey's (are they even still around?), City Market, etc. had far better donuts in their bakery every morning than you can get at Dunkin. Dunkin's food is salty, and their coffee is burned.
And Brady wears Uggs...
(no disrespect as a football player, he is def one of the greatest of all time)
Thanks for the local knowledge PTRider. Beartooth Pass Highway is already on my "to do" list. I've been reading about it and know to respect the perils that accompanies such beauty. I white knuckled it through The Tail of the Dragon in North Carolina/Tennessee a couple of years ago, along with the Suches Loop and the Skyway. Will definitely refer to your other suggestions. I learned to take the huge elevation differences into account, also a few years ago on a ride ( on a rented bike ) from Las Vegas to a cabin situated at 7000' between Zion and Bryce..... started out at 2000', sunny and warm and ended up with three feet of snow on the ground, and snowing by the time I reached 7000'!
Hank..... I hear ya! If not Dunkin' Donuts, I'm sure they have their western brand. Tempted to mention that the cops gotta eat SOMETHING out there, but won't out of respect, lol ( retired emergency nurse here! ).
I got a dose of the sports in last week at Fenway when the Sox lost to the Rays..... that should keep me immune from missing the hometown sports for a while. There's much I'll miss about New England, for sure. It's freakin' beautiful here in the Berkshires. And the roads for riding are multiplied in their challenge with the sand and potholes of winter. But, as I said, the real reason for this adventure it to REALLY connect with those two little boys in Wyoming. And when winter starts to set in there, it's down to the high desert outside of Vegas to connect with two little granddaughters there!
Ride safe all.
I hope the grocery stores still carry the amazing selection they did back when I lived out west.
And before I look like and eastern basher with my hate for DD, you're right, New England is amazingly beautiful. I personally prefer jagged mountain vista's over colorful leaves, but I am very glad that I've lived here and gotten to do some of the riding and hiking around here to see the leaves change (which really is as spectacular as it looks in pictures).
I'm jealous of your trip! I'm mentally planning out my own trips out west for when I move back. I hope yours goes well and you post up some pics (it helps inspire me to move back west), and have fun with the GK's!
