So I have to burn a minimum of 3 weeks vacation between the end of september and the first of the year. I had planned a nice 3 week vacation riding up through the rockies, into canada, new england, down the east coast and finding my way back to Texas, but that was all revolving around a wedding in NY I was supposed to attend. Sine I wont be attending the wedding now, and it looks like I wont be able to break free until the start of October, the Northern run is probably out. So give me some idea's I was thinking of maybe making a south Texas trip, then work my way over to new orleans for a night, over to the keys for a week of fishing the flats, etc. So, any good ideas for a motorcycle trip where I could do some fishing, or shooting, or catch some good live music etc? Am I wrong in thinking that the passes up through CO, UT, WY and MT would be closed by then?
