I'm not much o color tats either. I sort of half ass designed a patch... skull, crow, snake, sword and spear (not very original, but what is?)... looked up the symbols on a celtic site.
I've considered heading towards Cottonwood, Arizona. Year round riding, Route 66, big bikr country, no allergies or arthritis and aparently a petty liberal population. I was raised on the coast (Charleston, S) and currently live in the mountains. I love both, but would like to check out the desert. I've never really traveled much out of the South!
I haven't been to Daytona yet, but definitely want to make the trip! Hmm... I've been wanting another tattoo. I'll look ya up and we can get a beer and make fun of the bikers who are "riding for the Lord" (I know he appreciates it)...lol
No, even better- I work at a lock down juvenile facility. Every day it reinforces that I do not want to spawn any of my own! And it was my entire motivation for deciding to pursue a Master's Degree. The job market here really sucks. Sorry about your friend- it's pretty easy to get locked up now days.
