Motorcycle Homestead - Around the World

Just a reminder fellow Skoolie.net member Sean F is circling the globe on his motorcycle. I often forget to check up on his progress. A little 'bump' here to bring the blog link for his journey back to mind:

On August 1, 2010 I parked the bus and climbed aboard an overloaded motorcycle for a 1.5-year ride around the planet.
Blog here if anyone wants to follow along. Downsizing my life yet again.

So in the meantime, keep the bus conversion dreams alive, be nice to the n00bs and each other. I'll peek back in when I get a chance, and if I see any interesting rolling homes along the way I'll post some pics.

Cheers all
Sean

I think that qualifies as a "road trip!"

A little.”)

Re: Motorcycle Homestead - Around the World

Bump - i was a bit concerned when Sean hadn't posted for two months. He had been in Jordan headed through the Middle Eastern toward Egypt, just before the whole area erupted in revolution. But he managed to post several times this month, and had not ended up as "collateral damage" in any clashes.
