There really isn’t anything that makes me happier than trip planning. Motorcycle trip planning that is. I love the entire process from looking at Google Maps trying to find a place to go, to actually planning the route. I try not to over plan b/c having done that before I felt locked into doing everything I had listed and it was a vacation full of stress. Now, I just plan the initial route to get to where ever it is that I’m going and the route back (usually going a different way that I went). Leaving days at the destination open to exploration.
Now don’t get me wrong I do look for stuff to do at the destination, but instead of “yes I will go to X” it’s more of a note filed away of stuff to see if I don’t find anything else more interesting.
