Regarding future trips Mike, my wife and I have discussed a two up trip from Prudhoe Bay to Ushuaia, but this will have to wait until after she retires from working in January, 2007. And there's some doubt if we will ever actually do it.
Another ride I've longed dreamed of doing is a ride to Alaska and tour of that state. This is a definite possibility for next summer. However, after finding that the most beautiful scenery I saw on my entire trip was in Montana and Idaho over the last two days, what I would most like to do is something like a month long tour of the Canadian and US Rocky Mountain region. I've ridden a lot of it, of course, but never at a totally relaxed pace, exploring lots of back roads, stopping at historical sites, etc. One of the many things I gained an appreciation for on my RTW trip is how beautiful the country is right close to home and right now my biggest "itch" is to see more of it. But, Alaska is also very inviting!
