2018 was a fantastic year, I went to Baja, I moto-camped on a cliff in Washington, I saw a lot of beautiful scenery in Oregon’s Wildernesses, thoroughly explored Central Oregon, and broke my wrist. None of this would have been possible without me Top 5 Pieces of Gear that I picked up in 2018.
34 Days and 3,500 miles later I’m much tanner than I was when I left, Lazarus has a few new parts and a few parts that are still missing.I have met a crazy amount of amazing people who live in this beautiful state, and a few that I really didn’t want to say goodbye to.
There are adventures everywhere.
Get out and explore your world. You don’t even have to go very far. Just within your own state, you’ll be surprised by the amount of opportunities that will present themselves if you just get out and meet them.
Often times you’ll meet them when everything goes wrong. Adventure is what happens when your plan goes awry....
When I got to Bannack and found a spot to set up camp, a fellow biker, with a Triumph Tiger, walked up and asked if I wanted to share a camp site with him so we could split the $18 camp fee ($28 for him since he had out of state plates.) I said sure, because a $9 campsite is much better than a $18 site.
We traded moto adventure stories and then explored Bannack the next morning, before splitting off again...
