Riding Into The Heart of Maine, We Find Rain, A Mill and Teddy Roosevelt

The latest episode of Stage 1A to our Planet Ramble has been posted.  We ride into the heart of Maine in darkness, but miss hitting any moose.  We end up exploring a state park where I walk on water and we hole up in an “old mill”.  The following day we ride in rain and very bright sun.  Then, in a very small town, we find relics from America’s 26th president, Teddy Roosevelt and Suffolk, England’s red communications technology.

Stage 1A Of Our Planet Ramble Begins; We Go North!

The latest edition of our Planet Ramble has been posted.  Instead of heading south to warmer weather, we do the opposite and head north.  We prep two brand new machines for this adventure. Kim rides a Ducati Scrambler and Mike rides a Honda Africa Twin.  At the beginning of this portion of our journey, we get lost in Maine, ride in the dark in moose country and head for the Canadian border.
