    Riding Solo to the top of the world

    When I was at the Horizons Unlimited Meet last month I kept thinking about this movie I had watched a few years back.
    It's called Riding solo to the top of the world.

    I found this newspaper clipping from back in 2006 or 2007 and thought I'd post it so you can get a little bit of a feel of what this guy accomplished on his own.

    You can watch this on Vimeo and probably a few other places. The DVD is for sale still on the publisher's website
    DVD of One Crazy Ride, Riding Solo To The Top Of The World - Dirt Track Productions

    I have been searching for my copy... I want to watch it again... it's quite a movie!

    This reminds me of a series I have watched on Hulu called "Long Way Around". I don't have cable so I have a tendancy to watch odd things. This just happens to be about a couple guys on BMW Adventure bikes taking a very long trip. One of the guys is pretty well known actor. I pay for Hulu but they might be accessed through the free version too.

    Thanks for reminding me that I had this on dvd. I saw it in one of the Mags or HU and got two of them but going back to day and seeing it again stirred the same emotions again. Just sorry Im so old and pharmacy bound as not to be able to do it myself and be touched as he was by the simplicity of life and the appreciation of what I have in abundance. I recommend it also for the spirit it brings and the appreciation you will have for what you have. It also makes me appreciate the 700X that will allow me to at least find the corners of America as he found the corners of India and maybe the more simple and free people of America.
