This will be a quick post as I woke up to freezing temps at my friend’s house in Williamsburg and was reminded once again it’s winter. Rainy this morning as I pack up for my last 2 days of riding. Hoping Feb. 11th does prove to be a safe day to finish this ride on Long Island but will have a layover in a small town called Chestertown in Maryland.
I have to post this very REAL and well written post by Fuzzygalore. The Motorcyclist blogger I met the other night here in NY. Her writing kicks my ass in the blogging world but then again as we both discussed this not a competition. I can at least bow my head to someone who really knows how to reach out to her readers. What an amazing skill and gift. I am so disappointed I forgot to take a selfie pic of the two of us but Fuzzy did in fact post her version of us…please continue to reading to find out. 🙂
Heading to New York for US Thanksgiving. Haven’t been back for this holiday in so long. Time to be with family, see some more possible virtual friends and of course old friends alike. Looking forward to getting out of town – oops I have been out of town a lot lately on my bike but now I am flying.
I am not a writer by far, I am a person who uses my blog as away to document my passion for riding and my other passions, my life, home, dogs, work and wildlife. It’s my journal into my life even though I share it with well, the “world” to read. Making new memories? Yep…this will sound funny but I like to stream pics through my Apple TV. I am getting tired of seeing all my trips with my ex other half. I am looking forward to actually streaming while listening to my music new pics…pics of trips I take alone versus the past. So, yes…Making new memories as Leslie only.
I want to try something new. I want to start focusing on my future especially since yesterday June 10th will now be the anniversary of my dog Cruizers death. I spent last night texting my “support” system back home in both directions. West and East. I tried to face time my folks to let them know I was Okay but no answer. I had my sister-in-law call them after I heard the news.
My parents and I think for the most part have witnessed how Cruizer and I got along. 😉 I received a face time request from a friend/colleague and to my surprise she was in the office where almost my entire team was present. I have not been very present at work over the last 5 months to be honest. That too is something I want to get back, my passion for organ donation and my new role as family support program director/developer. I have had a buddy or two all along this trip to remind me to eat and rest. They know who they are and with everyone I feel this trip, my blog, FB and the readers on the ADV Rider forum it’s been a solo trip with many following. I kind of like that, best of both worlds.
This was the view where I was when I heard about Cruizer. At least I was thinking wow this is a little like a piece/slice of heaven only to realize that Cruizer was all ready there…
