For those of you who weren’t around when bulletin boards and internet chat were new, that stands for “Away From Keyboard”. Just a little note to let people know you weren’t going to be there for a while. Since Mr. Porretto does the lion’s share of the writing here, you won’t miss much.
I’ll be taking a trip on two wheels, and I’m deliberately not bringing any electronics other than my phone for emergencies and my GPS for directions. Although I’m bringing my map and compass, so the GPS will likely stay tucked in the saddlebags.
For those who are interested in this sort of thing, you can go to Tour of Honor and get the gist of what I’m doing. Normally I would do this in more of a barnstorming manor, hauling ass through states and trying to hit all the sites as quickly as possible. This time I’ll be stopping to smell the roses, visiting with a few friends, and seeing some places that I’ve never seen. Maybe camping out under the stars a couple of times.
Anyways, I’ll see you in a week. Maybe a week and a half.
