“At 5:33 p.m., Thursday, May 28th I crossed the South Carolina state line. The trip is over. All that is left to do now is get my butt home. I think the road trip gods were smiling on me yesterday I had rain around me but very little was on me. At one point, I stopped to put on my rain suit. Now this is about a twenty minute process, which I’m sure looks quite funny for travelers as they pass me on the side of the road. First, I have to strip off the leathers. It’s not easy getting out of chaps. Then unpack half of the bike just so I can get to the rain suit. I then pack everything back up and put on the suit. You really don’t want to do put the suit on unless you just like the idea of a workout in a rubber suit. I did time this right – as I get on the bike and start to drive off the rain starts. After about, oh I say half mile, and around one corner what do you think I see? Yep! The bright sun shines and I have blue skies. Now I’m glad for the sun, but you can’t ride for very long in a zip lock bag so pull on over and start the whole process over. I strip out of the rain suit and I’m back in the leathers. Forty five minutes later and I have only gone one whole mile – but at least I got some sun. I’m looking forward to getting home and sharing my stories from the road. (Oh, and some clean underwear!) Don’t worry – I saved one clean pair for Friday. After all, I might see someone that I know.”
