It's been a busy, busy week...
The more I work on plans for the fund-raiser, the more possibilities I find!
Without jinxing myself, there is one bike company (that shall remain name-less for now) that is entertaining the idea of supporting this endeavour and possibly providing me with a touring bike for the duration of the event!
Because of this, I have stepped up the promotion/coverage a notch. I've been busily approaching bike magazines, forums, organisations and associations, newspapers, etc. to see if they'll promote me or mention me. Some have happily agreed, others have been quiet... but, that could be because Christmas is next week. Maybe people are on holidays already? Perhaps only chumps like me are still at work, earning that extra dollar?
One thing's for certain... I will know A LOT more in January! I'm excited and tired at the prospect at the same time. The good thing about Christmas approaching is that I will now have time to focus on actually RIDING and adding more regular posts here, and less time sending emails and chasing people about this fund-raiser.
Before I sign off, I have two things to mention...
The first is a fellow blogger by the name of "MattB" - a true inspiration! I thoroughly enjoy reading of his adventures, seeing his photos and tapping into his psyche... If you haven't read anything of his yet, I encourage you to do so! You won't be disappointed! His blog is called "Contemplative Motorcycling" and you can find it here: http://contemplativemotorcycling.blogspot.com/
The second is a web site that I find INCREDIBLY useful! It provides all kinds of tips, stories of fellow adventurers, and anything and everything to do with adventure riding...
