Who are you following?

I'm always looking to learn from people touring so....

Is there anyone currently touring that you are following online? I met Jake when he came though my area and have been following his post on facebook. "jakedoesamerica"

Not following any individuals, but before I did a month plus long trip on Pacific Coast last early summer, I followed the posts on Crazy Guy on a Bike for some people that were there a couple weeks to a month before me. That way I could check to see what they were saying about the roads, weather, campgrounds, and anything else I might want to know about. Later when I was riding along, quite often I would say to myself, gee I saw a photo of that a couple weeks ago....

These guys stayed with me when they were passing through, and I've been following them since. Kind of different to most tourers.

I'm more of a learn by doing kind of guy....

I've tried meeting a couple people from Crazyguy by riding out to meet them on the CA coast....Never found them.

Met quite a few folks while camping/touring that had journals on Crazyguy or something on the web.That's great fun.
