Roadtrip Day 2 – Photos

The second day of my roadtrip started off in Salina, KS with the day to drive to Denver, CO. I stayed the night at Country Inn & Suites, which had the softest mattress, sheets and pillows of all the hotels I’ve experienced. The following morning I woke up to DIY waffle buffet, a breakfast room full of Air Force Radio Operators in transition, and a Walmart next door where I resupplied for the trip.

I didn’t take many pictures on my way to Colorado, other than a few videos of how much the land looks like the drive through West Texas – only less red dirt, and about the same amount of windmills.

Packing The Adventuremobile – Photos

What’s an adventure without your trusty steed?

I’m pretty sure I overpacked, but I would rather have something and not need it, than need it and not have it. And I somehow managed to have left over space to see out the rear window, see all rear blind spots, and have quick access to the cooler and my camera gear.

So far, I’ve had to stop several times to secure my bike, the yoga mats on the roof, and readjust the roof bag and straps. The downside to the bag is the sail effect while diving in high winds…

I took several photo as I progressively packed:
