Today I decided that before I take an extra long trip to Alaska (as previously discussed) that perhaps I should first try just a plain long trip. I looked at a  map and identified where my friends and colleagues are within a reasonable first long trip radius. I ended up throwing the dart to Jacksonville, Florida. Why Jacksonville you ask?

I have a very good colleague and friend in Jacksonville who shares some of my passions such as “Star Trek” and Sci-Fi. I would like to ride there and take him and his family out to dinner. Additionally, Jacksonville is just a few hours from Mickey Mouse in Orlando and I thought that my wife could fly down and spend some time with me at Disney and perhaps even ride with me home.

So today I will begin planning the trip day-by-day. From last year’s riding experiences I seem to prefer to ride about 6-Hours maximum before I need a real good break. Therefore, I will plan to ride approximately 6-hours each day. I am an early bird so I can see myself getting up with the sun and riding those 6-hours then finding a place to stay. This approach will surely allow me some time in each pit-stop to see some sites or just relax next to a pool.

By the way, if anyone wants to meet alone the way or even ride all or part of the way with me, do not be shy and leave a comment so we can hook up!

So My plan Starts Here and the dates most likely will be early summer or late spring.
