jakehelmbrecht Intermission. This adventure will return shortly. The time I've spent traveling the country, meeting fantastic new people and seeing all of the diverse communities I've been through, has changed everything I know. I've returned to Minnesota to sell what remains of my worldly possessions and to set the framework for an adventure that has no end. If you have a town you think I should see, a road I need to ride, or vista I need to gaze from, please drop me a line. If you're in Minneapolis, lets get together one last time before I hit the road for good. 4mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @jaredroy for sure I will. I will never tire of that road and it's scenery. It's truly heaven on earth for an outdoorsy moto rider like me. 4mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @jamiswy Heidi, might be a bit over the top description of me, but thank you. :) I will for sure hit that part of the country. Heard loads of tales about the area and I love the nature there. 4mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @greatvalley263 thanks, Yasu. I do love it more everyday. By the way, how can I go about getting a wallet that you've made? Have you ever sent one to the U.S.? 4mon
  •   scalvey That sounds like a great decision. I look forward to seeing your adventures and hope to get a chance to meet you again. 4mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @scalvey thanks Sean. You'll be one of my first stops for sure! : ) Can't wait to give Oakland a good inspection, and to see you guys again. 4mon
  •   _danby_ Vaya con dios for good? 4mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @dboyles52 ha! Yep. Vaya con Dios, my friend. Vaya con Dios forever. 4mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @dboyles52 you kill me with the jokes you remember. :) 4mon

jakehelmbrecht My first In-N-Out Burger. I've managed to avoid fast food on this trip, for the most part anyway. But I had to stop and check this out. The place was frenetic and the burger lived up to its name. It went in, then came out. I'm sorry, LA, I don't see the draw. 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @sharelli no. You're right. It's the worst. (And a guilty pleasure.). I was just going to say in-n-out is better than White Castle but that's not saying much. 5mon
  •   sharelli @jakehelmbrecht phew good. but I had to try it bc I'd heard so much about it. 5mon
  •   area45 @jakehelmbrecht I'm gonna let your cross words about In-N-Out slide because I'm dopey from a Double Double right now. Best part about traveling is trying all the foods you've heard about. I have this fascination with eating at a Cracker Barrel someday. I know, I know. Are you coming to LA? Let me know when. Maybe I can show you around via Moto. 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @area45 completely agree. I've seen a dozen cracker barrels on this trip but have never been. I kinda thought it was a store not a restaurant. I just left LA actually but will be back and I'd be extremely stoked to have a moto guide! 5mon
  •   amerikansaiko Hi Jake! It was great meeting you and hearing about your adventures! @scalvey and I hope that you find your way back to Oakland so we can show you around! 5mon
  •   area45 @jakehelmbrecht I thought you were still up north. Damn. Safe travels and we'll catch you next time. 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @amerikansaiko it was a treat meeting the two of you as well. I'll find my way back there for sure, you can count on it. 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @area45 sorry. I'm a tumbleweed in the wind at the moment but I'll give you a heads up next time. Between your MN trips and my CA trips it seems we've crossed paths a half a dozen times, we have to meet up eventually. 5mon

jakehelmbrecht Even a motorcycle man needs a bed and breakfast once in a while. 5mon
  •   hollywoodoregon Looks like grandmas attic! 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @hollywoodoregon it basically was. A little soft for a leather clad macho man. But the freshly baked cookies and glass of milk helped persuade me to put aside my toughness for the night. 5mon
  •   hollywoodoregon Cookies'll do that! Are you in CA? Making your way to Oregon ever?! 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @hollywoodoregon I will be eventually. The weather is a little discouraging at the moment. When does it usually get nice there? 5mon
  •   hollywoodoregon It's really great late summer, like August/Sept but it will start to warm up in April/May. Of course it's Oregon so could rain at anytime really! We got more snow last week than the last 5 yrs combined - so crazy! 5mon

jakehelmbrecht An adorable lattergram from New Orleans. That little man could jam and the bells around his ankle were the perfect addition to the band. 5mon

jakehelmbrecht From inside The Human Nest. I didn't get a chance to stay in it but I caught these folks hanging out of it and they let me come inside for a photo. If you've no idea what this is, get out the google, you're about to be amazed! 5mon

jakehelmbrecht My first oil well. 5mon
  •   84ability Nice 5mon
  •   thevanwithnoplan That bike is so cool! Our dad had a GSXR 750 and he would never let us on it, so it's made us want one more lol 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @thevanwithnoplan I'm not sure there's much a dad can do to keep his kids from wanting a motorbike. Everybody should have one. 5mon
  •   thevanwithnoplan He did his part, but we went with a bus! Haha and we could probably fit the motorbikes in the bus if we do get one. It would have to be a GREAT deal though. 5mon
  •   jakehelmbrecht @thevanwithnoplan that's some good information. Now I know I can hitch a ride if I see that bus! Some stretches are just too boring for a moto. I almost got a ride in a moving trailer across West Texas but we all thought better of it after a closer look. 5mon
  •   thevanwithnoplan Anytime! I will recognize the bike! Lol 5mon
