It ain't called running out of gas until you walking... Smart move though. I feel dumb. I have kept on riding as far as I could and then started walking from there...

Never a boring trip. Thats the way I like it.
Will be nice if you can setup a "blog" and document all your stories for the posterity and read all about them, like the "Pashnit" web site.

I am going to write it all down for my kids. Inspire them to get out there and live life.

I have, on occasions, flown overseas just to watch a concert.

I have pretty much been everywhere I always dreamed of going and done everything I always wanted to do with the exception of two..

When I was around 25, I had the chance to, but postponed it due to fatigue form traveling. Still kick myself in the for that.

I was set up and ready to go to Russia to fly a Mig fighter jet.

10,000 got you a full tank of gas, flight instruction and up in the air.

They would let you take the controls and fly the jet for a long time. And afterward they will perform three famous Russian plane maneuvers for you. The Cobra, one where they reach the jet's ceiling and hover it straight up and down then nose dive and another.

The other being the Air Combat school. You get to go up and have a dog fight with a bunch of other new pilots.

The Russian jet one seems more and more unattainable but since I am going to start going to Holland and Germany to work, I might be able to do it still. The more do-able one is the Air Combat one cause they do it out of Ft Worth. and SAlast time I checked.

BTW, I stopped by old Station Wagon Bob's house last night and dropped him off a 12 pack of Miller.

He was as happy as .

It was late but he said he was thinking how perfect it would be if he had a nice cold beer cause he worked late all day outside but was too tired to drive into town, plus he was broke as .

Afterward, it was a tense ride cause there were A LOT of deer out.

Yup, if a trip is completely uneventful or goes without a hitch, then its boring.

About 4 years ago, i rode from Reynosa to Eagle Pass on the Mexico side.

I was going up a beautiful toll road when a cop on a square body, early 90s Crown Vic cop car pulled out with his lights.

I was like, these cant afford a decent car, I sure as am not going to stop on my shiny new bike.

I gunned it and had it pegged on 6th gear, top speed and he I glanced back and he was pulling back over.

I would have been on foot for the rest of my trip had I stopped.

I was on some back roads by some corn fields about 100 miles from Piedras Negras and I came across this irrigation ditch that went under a tiny road and where it came back out, it was like a pool. Trees all over for shade and all kinda of kids swimming. I pulled right over and jumped right in. The water was sooooo cool and it was so hot out.

It was great.

I am going to go work in Germany sometime this year, hopefully and if I do, I am renting a bike and doing a road trip out there.
