Operation: TECTONIC

Undertaken in May - June of 2007, Operation: TECTONIC was an epic endeavor across much of the North American tectonic plate. Armed with a 1982 Yamaha XJ650 Motorcycle, a Horseman HF field camera, basic camping and survival gear, TECTONIC was the first solo circumnavigation of the American Nation undertaken by Tadge.net.

Though survival and completion of the mission was never a foregone conclusion, through determination, perserverance, and the help of the American people, the Operation was a reverberating success.

The basic structure of the Operation:
A clockwise loop around the Nation
Timed so as to mitigate temperature extremes

Which were regularly endured, regardless.
