Freedom on Both Ends of the Leash
Ara Gureghian & Spirit
Ara & his rescue dog, Spirit, have been camping and living full time on the road for the last 10 years in North America, following the good weather and the sights Mother Nature provides. He began his trip as therapy for both himself and Spirit, after the loss of his son, Lance. Riding “Old Faithful”, their 1996 GS R1100 with a sidecar, Ara says they are just starting their adventures, and they have plans to keep on riding and living on the road.
Listen to this great interview, where this man is open and honest about life and his feelings. A thought provoking talk with Ara that will leave you thinking about your next adventure and how you will go about doing it.
