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.

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 …
