2013 KLR650 Trip to the Land of the Vikings

Anxious….who is anxious??...There are only two business days left before I take my summer trip on my KLR650 aka WALL-e, named after the Disney robot, who was the only thing that survived humanity and was kept together from whatever could be scrounged up or patched just to keep running. There are many days where that is what my KLR650 feels like.

So why am I anxious, well WALL-E is supposed to transport my middle-age carcass to the land of the Vikings in northern Newfoundland, the place where men of courage existed over 1000 years ago; men who took an open boat and sailed the Atlantic Ocean over 500 years before Christopher Columbus who by Viking standards traveled in a posh Cruise ship. The Vikings traveled to an environment that was so harsh that not even their courage or sense of adventure could protect them and they faltered and finally left. I am expecting WALL-E to escort me to that same harsh environment to see where the Vikings landed and where they setup camp for which they later deserted.

It is not the harsh environment that has me anxious, it is the fact that WALL-E has a bad chain and I am still waiting on the replacement part before we can leave. The part was sent priority on July 24th and it is now July 31st. only two more business days left in this week…. So I am hoping the part will arrive tomorrow or Friday so I do not be left behind and miss a Viking adventure in northern Newfoundland. so yes I am anxious…..
