Tales from another traveler

I'm reading Breaking the Limit by Karen Larsen. In 2000, she rode her Harley 1200 "Sportster" from her home in New Jersey up to Alaska and back.

She gives short-shrift to California. "...Californians were a strange breed: friendly and welcoming when met in cafes and gas stations, on hiking trails or along the beach, but put them behind the wheel of a car and an ugly and inexplicable transformation occurred." She refers to us as "destination-obsessed lunatics".

She adds that the "sign that marked the Oregon border was a welcome sight."

I will be interested in comparing notes.

Experienced some apprehension concerning my trip. "Do you realize that when you depart, it could be the last time you see your daughter?"
