There's just a little over a week left until launch day arrives. Not much to write about between now and then. The burn on my leg from my exhaust is looking gross. I won't post a picture of it, but it was a little worse than that first picture I posted makes it look. I'm keeping it dressed and hoping the skin grows back before I leave next Wednesday...or at least grows back enough that I don't need to dress it as well as I am right now.
You may have noticed the map at the top of the blog. I've had this tracking app on my phone for a long time but never used it. I was checking it out the other day and realized it would be a great way to help people know where I'm at during my travels.
I still haven't decided if I want to give up any of my packing real estate to take my laptop or not. I've got my iPad, and I bought a keyboard for it while I was in Louisiana. It makes it just about all I'd need, with a couple of exceptions. If I can figure the exceptions out between now and Wednesday, laptop stays home and iPad wins again. :)
In different traveling news, I've been spending a lot of time on the road, even if it hasn't been on my motorcycles. I got a new truck at the end of March. In less than 5 weeks I've managed to drive almost 5,000 miles. For some people that may not seem like much, but over the past 14 years, Sara and I had never put more than 7,000 miles on a car/truck in a year.
Tomorrow is another day, and another road.
