Okay, you know what a rhetorical question is, right? Oh, actually, that’s one there: it’s me asking you a question when I already know the answer.
Now, don’t worry if you’ve already got this stuff wired: I’m not being condescending. I’m being pedantic.
Anyways, I mention the whole “rhetorical question” factoid for two reasons.
First, I’m an English teacher, so I dig that kind of stuff. Second, I mention it because the title of this post is a rhetorical question.
You see, I already know you can do this off-road expedition thing.
I’ve been out there. A lot.
When I was a private wilderness guide and Outward Bound instructor, I guided adults and teenagers tackling challenging month-long canoe trips, dog-sledding treks in temperatures as low as -47o C, rock climbing, white water kayaking, hiking, camping, sea kayaking, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing….

Hi Kevin – Tim shared your blog with me and I’ve just taken a first look. My biking career ended at 12 years old when my Honda 70 quit. Although loads of fun as a kid, I’ve never returned to motorcycling. The speed, the smell, the noise, the machinery … not for me. So, I took a look at your blog out of curiousity, not expecting to get much out of it. I was wrong. I really enjoy the tone and imagery you capture so well through your keyboard and camera. Just lovely! And although I may not get the bike part, I totally get the journeys that your bike and your determination open for you, and admire your intention to nudge others to join in the adventure. Looking forward to more reads. Shirley
