Once upon a time, I rode a 171cc scooter across the US. For those that aren't able to immediately picture what exactly that looks like, and why that causes alarm in many, imagine a small, sort of roadworthy entity that is not at all intended to be used in such a way. Now, add too much luggage, a bright pink motorcycle jacket and a gal with boat loads of determination to make it work. This, my friends, is only the beginning.
This crazy adventure took me about five months once I got scootin'. Needless to say, I almost died a lot. But, I'm also here to tell you; I loved every second of it all,
Ever tried to get a motorcycle license without a motorcycle? Or more particularly, a borrowed scooter with more engine power than you’ve ever experienced? Does anyone actually ever pick up the phone at the DMV in Hawaii? And what the heck is Mercury Retrograde anyway? These questions, and more, will be answered in this weeks episode of The ScooterLife Podcast. (And no, of course no one will ever answer the phone in any DMV, anywhere, at any time, in any place. Just in case you thought there was a chance 😜)
Welcome to 'ScooterCeption', Episode One from The ScooterLife Podcast.
In this episode, you will hear how the heck this whole beautiful mess of an adventure got started. From job prospects to job rejections, abandoned birth certificates and VHS tapes, misty phone calls to my mother, my first Adventure Spreadsheet, and so much more all come together to bring forth 'ScooterCeption'.
I hope you enjoy my first podcast recorded in my slightly noisy, yet extra cozy, RV tucked away in the misty woods of the Olympic Peninsula.
Stay tuned for more episodes!
