From Utah to Maine and back again: Planning

As some of you know, I will be leaving on July 24 from Orem, Utah and will be riding out to Maine. One of my bucket list items is to ride all 50 states on a motorcycle  and this trip will help me get closer to that goal. In fact, by the end of the trip I'll have motorcycled through 46 states.

If anyone has any suggestions of places to stay or visit, please comment below to let me know or email me at:

ROUTE: Orem, Mt. Rushmore (two nights), Albert Lia, Milwaukee, Chicago, Edinboro (2 nights), Boonville, Tamworth, Port Jervis, Washington DC, Pittsburgh (3 nights), Terre Haute, Liberty (2 nights), Longmont, Orem

PACKING LIST: I tend to pack light and do laundry at hotels along the way.

  1. Just a friendly thought. Truck stops are always open and may have some items you may need if you run out of or forget during your trip. They also have many inexpensive eateries at them and are really good places to relax after a long ride.
