The last month has been crazy.  I have changed jobs and jumped into a fast speed role.  ...After idling for a while admittedly, so struggling.  It's going to be great I think.  I am working hard and long.

Two weekends ago I removed the carpet on the third floor.  When we moved in to the house twelve years ago we also had kitchen and bathroom projects underway.  We laid the carpet on the rough damaged floor with minimal repair.  Last weekend full OSB sheathing by me including much attention to the stairs.

I have been riding my bicycle downtown to work three days a week and it's a great commute,  hope to keep going through the winter.  Heat is more my enemy than cold.  I have a bus card if not.

Just before out of Canada

Just before into Canada

This is the view to the Left

Canada.  Traveling clockwise around most of Superior somewhere between one and two if the lake was a clock face.  Cresting a big hill and coming down the other side and across a bridge.  This is the view to the right.

The middle of the bridge was flagged and closed  to cars,  I stopped there,  jumped off,  and started shooting, both phone and camera but I didn't take my helmet off so camera pictures are approximate.  Traffic through Canada was much lighter than when we went before,  time of year I suppose.  delete this bullshit

No no,  so,  in the time the moto was stopped in the center of the highway,  between the lanes,  no cars went by.  Thirty seconds at least,  sixty maybe.

So much easier to travel by yourself

This is Copper Harbor Michigan

This is Copper Harbor Michigan.  At the top of the Keweenaw Peninsula.  "Copper King" motel.  Doors on both sides of your room. The last 11 miles to get there (there is a sign!) are what motorcycle dreams are made of.  Older two lane blacktop.  Speed limit is 45 but 65 is the way to ride it on a moto.   If there are cars in front of you stop and let them go, you want it to be open and free.   Curving undulating sun and shadow tree canopy road eventually lake Superior views.  Love

Campground second year same site.  Large vehicles behind,  motos and tents in front.  Hammock in tall trees
Find yourself insaner than the last time you looked in the mirror
DR650, DR650, Honda TransAlp, DR650

Rode with these guys first day,  camped next to me,  talked to Zephyr, their lead dude last year too.  They all smoke which is annoying.  That TransAlp is a great looking bike from 1989.  Amazing he can ride it now.

First time riding with different guys and it was a good match,  will do it more
BMW GS 650, Yamaha WR 250, DR 650, DR 650

Sensi George top,  he offered me less wisdom this year,  but I'm ready to fly so probably on purpose. I brought light weight hot weather body armor and jersey/pants.  I run hot as you know and it made a world of difference. His work buddy or his buddy's buddy or something these guys,  cool dudes.  Would love to have been riding that WR250.  We rode the classic Northern Highlands route.
