Where's home? Trying to find it. I grew up near Seattle and lived in Portland for the last 3 years but I don't think I'll return after this trip.

What was/is your last/current trip? I'm on a motorcycle/backpacking trip through the American west. So far I've been through Oregon, California, Utah, Nevada and Arizona. I've backpacked in The Redwoods, Tahoe, Yosemite, Zion, hiked the Grand Canyon rim to rim, and many more places. I'm headed for Montana next.
