Sunny on Solo Ride 2012It’s not often you get the opportunity to take real advantage of having some time off from work.  Well, I decided to challenge myself to a long distance journey, so I embarked on a little “Solo Ride”  (New Jersey to Texas).  This journey would take me through 9 states  ( New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas),  averaging approximately 565 miles a day.

Below is a highlight of the route (not exact) but close.

So, the journey begins…

The trip was magical.  The weather was almost perfect and my motorcycle performed outstandingly.  I was pulling my husband’s trailer so, I was very hesitant in the beginning but once I got into the groove it was smooth sailing.  There were people on the road who gave me the thumbs up and those who honked their horns and waved.  Truckers who gave me the right of way and some who simply stared at me in amazement.  I had to pinch myself a few times too!

I was able to pace myself so that I could enjoy the scenery and the ride.  It was one of those times when you wished you had someone along to share the evening with but glad you didn’t so you could just enjoy God’s blessing without any interruptions.

I check-in by phone with my husband (“TC”) at each gas and rest stop.  I also sent a text to my family and friends so, I would not be delayed by having to call everyone with my status.

Well, now that I’m all rested, relaxed and my trailer is full of goodies, I will have to make the trip back.  So stay tuned for more updates.
