    As most everyone knows I've been attending law school in MA. This spring once finals were done I flew down to FL to hang with my parents for a week and then made my way out to Denver for a 6-week internship.

    While in FL we did a little dirt biking

    We canoed/kayaked out to where the dolphins like to feed






    This one snagged a fish right next to our boat. It was so close I thought for a second that the dophine was going to give us a bump.

    Then, at 4:30am on the 29th of May I was on my way.


    I covered 1086 miles of rather boring roadways the first day and didn't take any pics. That evening I stayed with Malcom from Advrider in Shreveport LA who kindly fed me and put me up for the night. I arrived at his place just before dark.
    This is my track from day 1. I maintained an overall average speed of 66mph (including stops).


    The following day I swung though Benbrook TX to have lunch with my dad's mom and her husband Herbert.

    I then rode across the vast expanse of nothingness known as West Texas to visit my mom's dad and his wife in Silverton TX.







    This was my route for the day. Much fewer miles, but dinner and lunch with grandparents takes time. I was glad I didn't need to go as far because the temps were hovering around 100 deg F.



    I arrived at my Grandad's in time for dinner. We grilled some delicious steaks for dinner and the next morning went to the local airfield where my grandad's new-to-him 1969 Aero Commander 100 Darter awaited us





    Planes have lean angle too ya know


    We managed to get down inside a canyon which was pretty cool
