Day 109 Welcome to the jungle

Hello. My name is Mike. I’m thirty years old and a native of West Virginia. Like many of you gathered here today, I have an issue. They say that the only way to get over your problems is to admit that you have a problem. Well folks……. I really really like animals!    haha It … Continue reading

Day 108 Brittany and I getting a feel for San Diego

It’s been a busy end to January 2012. I’ve been fortunate enough to have folks that I know be in the area or come out to visit me. First it was my brother Shane, his wife April, and April’s mom and stepdad, Tomato Pam and Tomato Joe in Las Vegas. Then Igor and the crew … Continue reading

Day 107 Traveling again

Morning began with immediate packing. I woke around 7 am. Mickey needed  to be out of the room by 8:30 in order to grab a quick breakfast and make his flight from LAX to San Francisco. He is traveling there to work one full week before returning home to West Virginia. Part of me wishes … Continue reading

Day 106 FMF, Compton, and Busbys

I slept in to NINE AM! What! How did that happen? Well, I don’t know, but it felt great. Mickey was long gone. His day at work started two hours before and my day was just beginning at nine. I immediately jumped out of bed and ran out the door. Mickey told me that the … Continue reading

Day 105 Beach bum

Day 103 Worlds come together

The rain finally stopped in Corona and it was time to get packing and head west, back to the ocean, this time to Santa Monica to meet some fellow travelers and friends. Before I get on with that craziness, I have to describe the long way round, detour, that I took to get back to … Continue reading

Day 102 Corona and the moto fix

From my title for day 102 you may think that I’ve been drinking and working on the Goose, but the Corona I’m talking about is the city of Corona California and the moto fix is how I’m describing my rainy day exploration of all the cool mx related businesses in the town. I didn’t plan … Continue reading

Day 101 Slow Sunday

After Supercross at Dodger Stadium I made it back to my tent and was wiped out. Being that tired, I thought I’d fall asleep right away, but the Santa Monica mountains were just cold enough that I had to get all the way in the sleeping bag and just couldn’t get comfortable. I’m guessing I … Continue reading

Day 100 FEET IN THE PACIFIC!

Day 100. In my unofficial rule book I’m officially hardcore. On day five I said “Five days in. That would sound so hard-core if it were a hundred days in.” Well here I am, one hundred days on the road. What have I got out of it to this point. For sure I’ve had a … Continue reading
