My trip went really well. No mechanical issues, and aside from one really wet and foggy stretch near Mt St Helens, the weather was wonderful. I think I've fallen in love with roadtripping... (*calculates when I'll have enough vacation time to do another one*)
Seeing the world at that level just emphasizes for me the interconnectedness of everything.
I've had my bike 20 months, and I've ridden it 20K miles. :)
The time in Seattle was fun, too. It was so good to see lalabob11 and jaberwockynmt and we explored the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum (which was really cool), amongst other things.
