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 …

That was Fun and This Next Trip’ll be Funner!

My Big Bad Desert I just can't express how stoked I am to have found motorcycles for exploring the world. Absolutely everything about it is right up my alley, even the sucky shit. No one remembers the trip that was both trouble free and exciting, because those 2 things don't exist together unless you think …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Wrapping it up in Silicon Valley

Soon, very soon. March 10th is my release date. After a year and a half in Techville it'll be time to huck most all the shit back into Mighty Whitey and make a final trek north to Bend. For all the shit talking I could do, and have done, concerning this place and my time …

Our respective rides, I have the '05 KLR 650 farkled to the goddamn …
