It is 21st of December and in 10 days, 2006 will be over. Looking back at this year I am a bit disappointed. Although I went back to ladakh for round 2 and did a few more trips, I think I should have done more. Some stats of what I did in 2006:
January: Small ride to Rajasthan 400+kms 1day
March: Jamwa Ramgarh Tal 583kms 1day
April: Sarahan 1180kms 3days
June: Chail 800kms 2days
September: Ladakh 3815kms 18days
October: Vrindavan 336kms 1day
November: Pushkar 1200+kms 3days
If we tally all this it means that I only did 7 rides this year and out of that only 4 were multiple day trips. It also means I did 8500kms and 29days worth of touring this year.
If I look at it from a normal persons point of view that means quite a bit of touring, but since I consider my self as a hardcore tourer this is just shameful. To add to the woes I am going to be a bit preoccupied for the coming months (for reference read Grounded).
One thing is for sure, I have one New Year resolution that I intend to keep for the next year, at least one ride per month!
