The trip was a mix of visiting family & friends, and motorcycle touring & camping that all started when I got the invite to my sister's wedding in Florida.
Rain, snow, mud, dirt, wind. Bad weather, perfect weather. Head winds, tail winds, cross winds, no wind. It was a great trip and a great adventure.
