Totally Called It!

Calm Before the Storm That was a fuckin' hoot! Got to return to a camp I used to love as a kid and it was still spectacular and empty, hung out with my best buddy in the whole wide world in Kalamity Flats, made a new friend at a coffee shop in Lakeview, tripped my …

Ooooooooooweeeeeeee!

Alvord Time Say that in your best Mr. Poopybutthole voice and that how this trip has been so far. If you don’t get the above reference, the interwebs can enlighten you. This is just a little check in mid-ride. Gerber This trip has been the bee’s knees! Had a great time in KF visiting friends …

Home. 11,156 Miles and 7 Weeks Later

Ugh. Holy shit, it's over. For now. That was a haul unlike any other I've attempted. Trying to find words to encapsulate a trip of such size is difficult, hell, trying to grasp all that was seen and done is a lost cause. Gotta love photos and blogging for keeping track of the memories and …

Family Funtime

Rolling into Hartland, WI had me nervous initially, but very soon that all went away and a most excellent time was had. For a very long time family for me has consisted of my sister, bro-in-law and their kids. My folks bailed from Wisconsin to the west coast soon after getting married and didn't keep …

A Short Breather

After 8 straight days of popping awake, grabbing a quick cup of coffee while packing, crawling into horrifically stinky riding gear and hammering down the road for 4-500 miles, it's delightful to be sitting in a Starbucks in shorts sipping coffee and typing. The northern detour part of the east/west trip was mind blowing and …

A Good Start

Why, howdy! After the initial first day clusterfuck start typical of such an undertaking, things have rolled along smoothly. Not that day 1 was terrible, just a too long day ending at a poor camping spot due to the damn sun going down. Actually saw some sweet country and got to ride some sketch Forest …

A New Adventure on the Horizon

Howdy! Well, that last trip really got the travel bug fired up and thankfully I don't have much in the way of obligations holding me back. Thus, on or around the 24th of June I'll be heading out on a 10k+ 6-8 week dual sport moto adventure across Canada and the US. This isn't going …

So, That Big Motorcycle Trip…..

Hooooo, boy! It has been a while since my last blatherfest. Lots of nifty little adventures, including overnight camping trips in my lovely Oregon desert to working 'vacations' in Portland to assist friends, have been occurring right under your nose. Yes, yes, I promised big bold write-ups of my little moto romp through the desert …
