Now that I’m sure no one will ever read this…..

Having been almost a year since I've put anything up here, and having also killed all social media links, you will have to be a pretty dedicated follower or too lazy to ever unsubscribe to be exposed to this babble. Really have no idea where this is going to go so we'll be in the …

Being All Adult and Such

Cheers, good readers!! How's it been? As typical, much has happened since the end of the big trip. That interview I cut the trip short for paid off well. I'm 2 weeks in on being a Field GIS Tech with a sweet small engineering firm that I'll never name here. Like to keep personal and …

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 …

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 …

Getting it All Sorted Out

Yep, wasn't fucking around about a big summer ride. Launch date is June 23/4 with a tentative return date of 24/5 August for a memorial on the Oregon coast. 2 solid months on the road with the mighty KLR from Bend to East back to Bend via Canada. Possible longer depending on variables. Being a …

Back in the World

As hard as I tried to post form the road, it didn't really work out. I'll be throwing up a few different posts about the big trip soon. A couple about the trip, then at least one for moto/gear nerds about how all my stuff worked or didn't. It was a goddamn blast, I can …

Cupertino to Bend via Bisbee

The last day in Silicon Valley slowly winds it's way too conclusion. Got last minute shopping and pack fitting done so while I've got a little time before heading out to comedy show #2 in 2 nights figured I'd tap this out. Bill Burr was so goddamn funny last night my abs were cramping. He's …

10 Days and a Wakeup

5 working days and 5 pack up and check shit out days and the Silicon Valley experience shall be coming to and end. The hot springs adventure last weekend was the tops. I was the only overnight guest so had the whole place to myself after 8PM. Spent 20 of my 24 hours there either …
