Wonderful story and such an adventure! My spouse and I travel often on our motorcycles, but the longest trip is coming up in May - 20 days. Plan to go west, south, return east and that's it for plans! We did a Roanoke, VA, to Key West, FL, trip in 2005 -- 18 days, 24/7 with each other and it still wasn't enough time! Thanks for the great tips and wishing you safe future travels!
