Chicago to Arizona and more!!

Well in exactly 11 days I start my road trip. I'll be departing from Chicago en route to Arizona. I'll be spending a few days in Arizona then heading up north to the grand canyon, Bryce canyon, Zion national park, Navajo country to see some slot canyons, an if I'm lucky enough up through the Tetons and heading home. I have 3 weeks to ride as much as possible. I'll be camping the entire trip and taking a lot of pictures. Subscribe as I'll be posting daily with my trip and experiences. I'll post a rough route in the next week in anyone is interested in meeting up to escort me for a while. Always open to side roads, suggestions and a cold beer as well!!

The very essence of leadership is its purpose. And the purpose of leadership is to accomplish a task. That is what leadership does–and what it does is more important than what it is or how it works.

Hey SGT,

I have the Roadglide flag and am looking to pass it along and meet more members. How about a meet up in Az to pass off and maybe you can pass it along to someone else on your way back home. Please let me know if you're interested.....I'mm itching for an excuse to take a ride and get away from work for a day or two!

Absolutely! Where snouts are you located in Arizona? I'll be spending a few days with my dad in Sierra vista and then heading up north

Only reason I have that time off is my boss promised me whatever time I wanted for vacation after returning from Afghanistan. I took advantage of her offer!
