The Adventures of ScooterBob

The moto blogging community lost a very special person last month, BobSkoot.  It was quite a loss to the little tight-knit community of motobloggers.  We've followed each others blogs through our escapdes, adventures, trials, tribulations, glorious moments and everyday living. 

Last year Bob rode coast to coast on his Beemer (Nu2Me), and was planning further bike adventures in the future. This year he and Mrs. Skoot were on a 4 wheel adventure travelling in his corvette and doing the things Bob did best, taking pictures and enjoying life. We in blog land were wondering where the Skoot family was and how they were making out on their adventure. Through a few posts on Scoot Commute our blog friend David found out the sad news, Bob passed away in his sleep. David relayed this sad news to the rest of  us, and we felt lost and bereft.

As a group of motobloggers we want to honour our friend and have been thinking of ways to do this and David of Scoot Commute struck on this lovely idea.  Bob had given David a little wooden vespa scooter and now it is going to travel the world and motobloggers are going to take pictures of it and see how far a field the little scooter can go, so far it is on a whirlwind tour with destinations in the US, Canada and Europe (take that hitchbot).  I know BobSkoot would've loved the adventure of all of this!

I think this would have made Bob smile. We'll all take him where he never got to go.

Bob would have loved it!

I am thinking by the list ScooterBob will hit Victoria in January, which makes it not very moto friendly, so he may have to go on some four wheeled adventures with me.

I'm hoping to show him the beautiful foothills on the Appalachians in southern Ohio!

Depending on when he arrives, we may have to take the car!

I'm looking forward to extending SkooterBob's travels!
