After a nice visit to Florida I decided to head north for home. The weather is so unpredictable this time of year with constant thunderstorms and tornados popping up. I had a window of about a week of clear weather to make the ride back. I did some quick overnighters along the way: Starke FL, Augusta Ga, Roanoke Va, and Harrisburg PA, then straight up I 81 to the border, the only rain I hit was when I went through Syracuse, NY. Canada Border Services took their time to thoroughly search my bike and trailer and then I was on my way no problem.
Here’s the whole route more or less:
(In chronological order)
Red: South from Ottawa, Canada and west across the U.S.
Green: South through Mexico, spent several months in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Merida
Blue: North through Mexico back to the U.S.
Total time spent in Mexico 5 months, 10,000 kms approx.
Pink: Touring around California and Arizona for a couple of months
Brown: Mesa, Arizona to Key West, Florida
Purple: Key West, Florida to Ottawa, Ontario
29,000 Kms total – 9 months on the road
Thank you to all my family and my friends(old and new) for your support and encouragement along the way.
