My trip blog I will use for my upcoming USA4CT is: http://jimsmotorcycletrips.blogspot.com/

I plan to leave Richmond, VA on May 29 heading to Madawaska to start the USA4CT. Then to Key West to Say Ysidro and to Blaine.

Just noticed today that the international motorcycle dealer in Charlotte, NC (Jafrum) picked up on my Motorcycle Trip Blog and featured it on their site with an article titled, "Great American Motorcycle Road Trip: USA Four Corners Tour". Of course lots of good references to SCMA!! The article is - http://blog.jafrum.com/

Well, I am back home after 24 days on the road! As you may have noticed my trip blog was NOT kept up to date along the way. I learned very quickly that due to time in the evening/night, mental & physical tiredness and very low speed motel wireless that updating a blog just was not practical along the way on the USA4CT!!!! Sorry about that. I am now in the process, at home, of uploading all the pics and will be updating my blog over the next several days. So many great stories, places visited and people that we met!! Did meet 4 great USA4CT finishers along the way (Joe in Maine, Harold in South Carolina, Marty in Oregon and Charles in Washington!!!). Also met one other husband/wife team along the way doing the USA4CT at a hotel in Florida City, FL (Keith & Sharon).

Did the USA4CT in 15 days and 7,033 miles. Total trip from home to home was 11,476 miles and 24 days. Also gotta get my corner pics printed out and mailed in along with the important receipts to get the official certification. Can't wait for that!!!!

Jim, Congratulations on completing the TOUR! Sorry we didn't meet up in Key West as we hoped. Perhaps you'll do the TRUE X next year? What a country... and what weather!

Hey Steve, yep, sorry we didn't get to meet up too. Did meet up with 4 GREAT finishers and one couple on the tour. That was nice to see and share the experience with someone "on the road".

I don't know if I will do the True X or not. Do let me know your experience and how you liked it. I just can't seem to get excited about having to ride into/thru Kansas three times!!!! Every place else would be great though. Yes, had GREAT weather except for Tropical Storm Andrea in Florida. Don't want to do that again!!!! Really should not have done it the first time!!
