Somewhere between Winnemucca and Gerlach, desert country of NE Nevada.
My friends! After a long absence – time to reflect on my motives, intentions, and time frame for action- I have decided to complete my 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure R, and set out once again for Ushuaia, Argentina in the winter of 2017-18. My journey will entail approximately 11,159 miles of astonishment, uncertainty, fear, and bliss. Yes! All of those things and more! That, dear readers, is one way, the return journey is yet to be charted and planned.
Deborah and I stood at the weddings of two of her daughters in 2016. Both were splendid affairs! The first in June held in Las Vegas, and the second in Northern Ireland in September. Those two events along with the arrival of grandson Wyatt made quite a year for us. After half a year of, “whats next?” we decided to get to following-the-dream once again.
For us that means separate travel in two different directions. Never-the twain-shall-meet does not really describe the situation, as we are committed to meeting up wherever and whenever possible. In the next six months we will plan the logistics and execution of our separate dreams while simultaneously creating a new chapter in the common dream we share.
Life has indeed gotten in the way, and times-a-wastin, if we don’t push the horses we will end up being all talk and no action. Don’t care for the sound of that tune.
