i didn’t shoot a whole lot before western kansas / colorado. there were a few very awesome highways in ohio but other than that the first few days of the trip were spent riding in a straight line through endless fields of corn. lots of cattle movers creating insane wind blast when driving by on a two lane road. fun!
we might have spent as much time in gas stations as we did riding- stopping every 40-60 miles for gas because it turned out i had a pretty small tank and my bike wasn’t running efficiently. every time we stopped there was another dad who came over to tell us about how he rode the exact same honda when he was in high school. and they’d ask where we were headed- sometimes we’d say california, sometimes we’d name our next destination, and sometimes we’d say as far as we can make it. kinda depended on the situation. i think this conversation happened upwards of 30 times on the trip.
