Riding Partner Sought for Trip to SW
In late March / April I am planning a 3-4 week ride from Seattle to/from the Southwest, where I hope to take in as many national parks and monuments, and great routes, as I can in a 3-4 week trip. Most of my trip will involve camping out, with some motel stays in inclement weather, etc.
In terms of personal information, I am a retired 64 year old married man with a broad range of interests. Most of my interests are outdoor-oriented -- cycling, bicycling, fishing, hunting, camping, golf, etc. I am left-leaning politically and tend to stay out of political discussions with those who lean the other direction. Although I'm not mechanically skilled, I can do very basic maintenance on motorcycles.
I have never taken a trip longer than 5 or 6 days outside of the Northwest and want this trip to the Southwest to be the beginning of a new interest. My route to the Southwest will be a beeline south to get away from any unpleasant Northwest weather, then the possible routes and destinations will be wide open.
Looking for compatible riding partner with his / her own bike and camping gear who might want to share the experience, either in full or in part. PM me if you're interested in discussing this and we can initially chat over the phone.
