So it has been a while since our last update. We didn’t get a Canadian SIM card and have been without internet for a while.
Marisa and I have had an amazing ride through Washington and it’s beautiful rain forest in the Olympic NP then into BC and the Yukon. We’ve seen black bears munching on wild berries on the side of the road, moose down dusty trails, and have camped in some pretty amazing places.

With the weather warming up, we are getting unbearably excited for our launch date in just under a month and a half!
Our newest motorcycle is still in pieces, some of our new gear is yet to arrive, and I have only put about 20 miles on our newest member of Notier's Frontiers. The 1st real test ride will be 13k miles as we ride around the lower 48 before heading north to Alaska.
This isn't our first launch date that seemed like we may not hit the target... Four years ago, I didn't even have my driver's license delivered to me in time for our departure date. But everything seemed to sew itself together into a fine silk tapestry that looked fragile at first, but presented a wonderful picture of what life on the road was like when everything ran 'smoothly'.
I always say that the beginning of a journey is full of difficulties and obstacles, hurdles that you have to overcome before the real joy of the adventure can start. And the start to our African journey has been no different, though it's also been peppered with moments of joy and beauty.
