Preparing for the Road Trip
In one week I will be leaving Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for a motorcycle trip to Cruso, North Carolina. Cruso is located between the Smoky Mountains National Park and Asheville. I’m totally looking forward to this as it will give me a chance to ride a long distance with my friends Daneen and Mike. Plus it will be nice to get away from work for about a week and really let my mind unwind.
Thoughts of what to take cross my mind. Traveling light would be nice, but how do you do that? Maybe all I need is a change of clothes since I’ll be wearing my riding gear every day. Rain gear is a must. Some medications, and my camera. Really, what else is there? Oh yeah, my Camelbak for hydration while riding. Maybe a few tools and some lube for the chain. Oops, heated jacket, yes, will definitely need that.
Hopefully we can finalize our plans on Sunday at the BMW Dutch Country Riders breakfast in Etters. And if all goes as planned, I will be selling the BMW F650GS upon my return. It’s sad in a way. I really like the bike. We have a lot of memories. 🙂
