Default What is yous plan for 2013...?

Learn how to spell words correctly! LOL Good luck with that!

At least two bike rides through Yellowstone Park! Try to do this every year!

I'll keep adding to this! What is your plan?

Try to get two of my best friends who also ride to do another trip. We haven't ridden together since 09 when we did a lighthouse ride/photo shoot.

To FINALLY get my V in to the shop to have my steering 'wobble' fixed, and my thermo-bob installed...

ANOTHER Alaska run, with a stop in Dawson City for the D2D on the longest day of the year in June, then maybe Inuvik IF the Dempster is dry....

Probably be my LAST Alaska adventure as I turn 70 this year...

My baby is getting married, so I'll spend most of my time sleeping in the dog house for telling the wife to mind her own business too often

Second, get a specific 2-year certification I should have gotten 35 years ago.....
Third, take a bike trip (anywhere) with my brother since we didn't get to last year!

I don't think I will top my almost 33,000 miles ridden in 2012, but I plan to be spontaneous and take advantage of every opportunity to ride that I get. Hope to pick up the west coast, or north central states this year.

Along the lines of Davy F, I'm seriously crunching the #s to see if I can retire a year from now after what will be 34 years at age 60. I think it's doable and it's time to turn in my badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges....

I'm 53 now (since Dec 1st '12) and this time last year, I was making all sorts of plans for several trips abroad and at home believing that I would have been retired by the end of March 2012. That didn't work out due to being told lies by my employer, so to say the least, I'm not really making anything concrete for this year until I get the paperwork in my hand this time round. If everything works out, June will hopefully be the end of days for my working career and I can start on life part 2.

My long trip this summer is Panama City, FL to Plattsburgh, NY and back... no interstates. About 1800 miles one way.
Here's my basic way up there:

https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=3...0,11,12,17&z=5

Haven't come up with a different route back yet.

That looks like a great route, Gene. Only thing I could suggest for the return is to swing a little further west so you don't miss West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. Enjoy.
