Butch's return home-day 5

My brother, my hero, made it home today safely. He traveled a total of 10, 007 miles............what a ride!!! He left home on August 1, and returned today, August 27. He will have to be introduced to his wife and kids. ;-) No one can call Butch a "poser", though, after riding over 10,000 miles in less than a month. He's my hero.

He and I both have a "raccoon" face from the wind and sun and the wearing of our shades, but his is much more pronounced than mine............his may never go away. Both his teeth and eyeballs appear to be whiter now. ;-)

We are already discussing our next ride. We would like to get a ride in next year, but we may have to wait until '09 and do the National Parks with Tammy and Gary. Ideally...... we would like to ride somewhere every year - just make this a yearly adventure until one of us can't swing our leg over the saddle any more. Bu we would both be divorced if we tried to pull that off, and we love our brides to much to let that happen. ;-)

But Butch and I have some wonderful memories and experiences from the Alaska trip that we will never forget, and hopefully, we will be able to re-live the ride with our spouses one day, but from an automobile. That is the only way that we will get our spouses to join us. ;-)

Thanks to all of you who followed along with us on our little adventure. We hope that you enjoyed the blog and comments and the meager photos that were taken. Until the next adventure............

10,000 Miles in a Month? Wow, Wow! I'm taking my longest ride this summer and only covering 4,000...
I also would love to make at least one ride a year... Well, I guess the future is always in motion, so the day may come...
Thanks for sharing!
