Tips for Women Traveling Solo..

With the weather promising to get better…although I have my doubts… I have begun to think about all the rides I want to  take to exotic places, near and far..aka the hills near my home and somewhere beyond. I want to make a few maps and actually plan some REAL great rides to take this riding season and that provokes thoughts of what I need to do. Here are some of the places I have used for some helpful advice.
My friends Susi and Dana did a couple of blog posts on what to pack and some very good equipment for camping (back in June). 
A woman who I admire, Carla King, did a great blog on women traveling solo..and she should know.  Read her book called, “American Boarders” and see how she handled a ride through Europe and her ride around the United States and Canada.
Stop by and visit our family run website at Motorcycle Travel America.com and look for “Ladies Only” under “Tips“. There is information on everything we girls need from packing ideas to medical issues.

Planning is everything when you travel by motorcycle or any other means. Stop by our website and make  a map for your trip and send an invitation to all your riding girl friends.  If you decide to go alone, make maps every night you stop and add it to a blog provided on the website so no one needs to worry about you..as much. Only your designated family and friends can access and read all about what you did that day, see pictures, and see icons to show what you did and where you are. Contact me if you need any help with it and I can show you what to do.  Put everyone’s minds at ease and ride alone with confidence.
So… let it snow, for now. Its going to have to get better eventually and when it does, we will be ready!!

    Cool – thanks for introducing me us to Susi and Dana. They’ve just been added to me RSS feeds. They seem like fun girls 🙂

    So – do you have an ever growing list of things you want to see and do posted on MTA? What will you do first? I’m going to go and have a peek now!

      The list is so long and I may never get to it all, but I have had so much fun and met the most wonderful people as a result of all this. Well, like you!
      I want there to be so many maps on this site that if you were going to a new town and riding, you would have access to every great road out there and be able to find the person who made the maps and ask them questions. Wouldnt that be great?? Thousands of maps to try… Ok, it may be my dream for myself, hehehe.

      And, Susi and Dana are two great girls! I really like them and they are local.
