Christmas 2010: Cross One More Thing Off Your Bucket List, Kenny

Christmas 2010: Cross One More Thing Off Your Bucket List, Kenny

Same question, different Christmas.

What do you get for the boy who doesn’t need anything? This year, Kenny got a dualsport trip to Moab, Utah.

Weeks in the Making

My first and biggest hurdle for planning was: Can you rent dirt bikes? Where? And How?

Through the advice of friends, I got in touch with Jim at KTM of Moab and began to gather details on what sort of riding and rental options were available.  He was friendly, enthusiastic and made you feel like you’ve known each other for years. As Jim and I spoke, it became abundantly clear that this trip would be a home run.

Fast Forward A Few Weeks

Kenny and I were sitting on the train heading in to a party in NYC. We sat chit-chatting, talking about the quickly approaching new year. We talked about our travel wish lists, the places we’d like to visit, things we’d like to see. He mentioned he’d love to ride dirt bikes out west, you know, maybe see Moab.

I know that I really don’t have any kind of a poker face. My skin prickled, I smiled nervously and thought for sure that I’d just tipped my hand. But he just kept on talking. What a coincidence! It made me feel good to know that I was on the money.

Now the daydreaming starts

Being able to give someone you love something they love is priceless.
