I’m 170 miles into my US motorcycle tour and writing from the spare bedroom of a family’s home in Bend, OR.
While I was working in Bristol Bay, I befriended a few fishermen & women who have invited me to visit them while I’m on the road, so I figured I’d take one of them up on the offer and visit his DIY Cave here in Bend. I had hoped he could give me a suggestion for an interesting place to camp, sights to see, a place to get a bite to eat. Instead, I’ve gotten to hang out with his wife and youngest kid, enjoy a tour of the area, great conversation and have a bedroom with electricity and wifi access. Amazing!
When I have time, I’ll post about my experience working in North Naknek and my trip from Anchorage to Denali with a bunch of ADV riding folks and the epiphanies had during those experiences.
