this morning I was reading an Airhead motorcycle monthly as i crossed on the early morning ferry to San Francisco. They have numerous entertaining blurbs of upcoming events to areas hundreds or thousand miles away. Here I am now rolling around my head a 2200 mile ride over a 5 day period from the Bay Area to the western corner of Montana in late September. it would be an epic ride through the last weeks of summer over mountains, fields and deserts. this summer (and year) has been packed with busy activities, family commitments and the usual job demands which has left little in the way of riding. without another rider to force commitment and pushing for a tag along... I might be tempted to just stay around here, sail an overnight and waste another riding year.
I have two questions for you based on personal experience and practice. When managing life, loving family, needing to make a living and finding time to do things which interest you - how do you make the time without loosing balance? when you do - How do you rise above to organize your time, mind and ready the opportunity to strike out on an adventure without having other pressures of life get in the way?
