On the Road to Santa Fe

Well, it’s that time of year again to pack up the bike and hit the road to Santa Fe for my annual workshop. Last year was a lot of fun and I’m really looking forward to getting out of town and on the road again this year. You can read about my class in this article Jeff Schewe’s Santa Fe Workshop.

You can also see what I posted from the road last year in On the Road to Santa Fe. As well as the daily reports; Day 1 – Chicago to Joplin, and Day – 2 Joplin to Amarillo and finally, Day 3 – Amarilo to Santa Fe.

We’ll see what I can post this trip…the weather looks good and the trip is bound to have some “exciting moments”. Depending on net access (and time) I may be able to do some updates.

So, if you see a guy on a red beemer with Jessie bags and a weird windshield passing you, give a honk.

    Thanks Greg….

    Made it to Joplin, MO no problems…well, had an issue with net connections at the hotel, but I’m back on line.

    Well, I made OK City by noon…going to Tucumcari tonite. Clear skies so far but with wind 10-15mph out of the SSE (better than a quartering headwind but less good than a tailwind).

    I’m at the Starbucks in OK City…

    See ya tonite!

    Well, the afternoon winds kicked up and I decided to pull in in Amarillo…no need to fight 25mph gusts out of the South when it’ll be quiter in the morning! And, there’s a Starbucks in Amarillo :~)

    I’m sitting in a Starbucks at DeVargus Mall in Santa Fe, NM. Arrived about 2:30pm mountain. I’ll post additional updates when possible, but class comes first.

    Sounds like a great trip.

    I’d be interested in knowing how you pack your photo gear, and if you’ve ever had any problems with it induced by vibration.

    (Yes, I know beemers don’t produce vibration. Maybe I’ve been riding Ducatis too long.)

    Ride safe(ly)!
