2004 - Winter Ride from Globe, Arizona to Orem, Utah

DAY 1: Flying from Utah to Arizona

MONDAY, 27 December 2004

I made an offer to a coworker. If he would drive me the 40+ miles to the airport (after driving about 20 to get to my house) I would pay him what I would have had to pay a shuttle van driver - including a small tip. He jumped at the chance! It was good for me because I got to have a nice conversation with someone I knew rather than ride in silence with a bunch of folks I didn't know.

I only had 3 bags, all of them Tour Master soft luggage items: a 12-liter tank bag, a 17-liter tail bag, and a 30-liter Cortech tail bag. I checked the large tail bag because I wasn't going on a long trip without my pocket knives, and I couldn't carry them on. I also stowed my helmet and some odds and ends in the bag.
