My name is John Dickie, and I currently split my time between St. Augustine Florida and Baltimore, Maryland doing graphic design over the internet. With a laptop and an internet connection, I can work from anywhere really. I¹m also a musician and I enjoy getting into new adventures whenever possible.
I¹ve been motorcycling for almost 20 years, and I've done several long distance trips full of great memories.
This is part of a dream that I have had for a while, so I¹m glad to finally get on board for the Alaska trip. I wanted to go last year, but the financial situation didn¹t allow it. I'm not sure if it does this year, but I'm not getting any younger either.
My plan is to leave St. Augustine on the morning of 7/18 and catch up in Memphis. Ringo Starr is playing here the night before, and how many chances does anyone get to see a surviving Beatle, right?
From there I will ride with everyone to Kansas City, then head west through Kansas and Colorado, finally reuniting in Glacier on Friday 7/23. I'll be with everyone up to Hyder and back down, possibly further once we get back in the states.
I'm a rabid Motel 6 fan and very easy to get along with, so if anyone is looking for a roommate, just let me know. I'll be carrying camping gear too, so that's always an option if we get to a destination before the wolves come out.
My current motorcycle for this trip will be a 2002 BMW R1150RS. I look forward to meeting everyone and having some great new experiences.
