"Chef" Ara, and his four-legged travel companion Spirit have been on the road for six years now. Their mode of transportation is just as interesting as their story, instead of traveling by vehicle, or even a regular motorcycle, the two travel with a sidecar motorcycle. Ara and Spirit's adventure has been unfolding before our members eyes nearly since the beginning of our site; it's been filled with ups and downs, drama and funny moments, but most of all, it's been a fantastic way to live vicariously through an incredibly interesting person. The story totals nearly 100 pages over the six years the thread has been maintained, and it's a great read. Be sure to check it out on the Expedition Portal Forum, or his online journal "The Oasis of my Soul."
