Videos from the road. Christmas Day, and a fellow two wheel long term rider

This is Ivan, the fellow that I met in a McDonalds parking lot in Ft. Stockton Texas. At the time he was venturing off on the next leg of his four corners journey after being trapped in a west Texas motel due to bad weather for almost a week. This guy was packing more gear … Continue reading

Day 122 the THING and I

Heading home at a blistering pace, compared to my pace going west, sets me up for a tremendously different daily schedule. I would love to take my time, knock out a post , and do some site seeing all in one day, like I’m accustomed to, but my bank account is on “E” and there … Continue reading

Days 120 and 121 First miles toward home

In the past two days I’ve ridden 5,306,400 feet from Humbolt Redwoods State Park in Northern California to Phoenix Arizona. That’s 1005 miles for the folks who were curious about the conversion. For the third night in a row I managed a solid three hours of sleep. This time caffeine had nothing to do with … Continue reading

Day 91 A big U-turn in Utah

Day 91 marked 4 days until I meet some family in Las Vegas. I can’t wait. That morning I woke with a plan of making it to Utah’s, Zion National Park. To me that seemed like a practical place to knock one of those days off of the countdown. Really though, I just want to … Continue reading

Day 90 Three states a day will keep the doctor away.

Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park is a fascinating place. When I arrived there the evening before, I had little time to get a feel for it. Sure, I saw some red formations but they were just at the campground and the eastern entrance. That morning after packing up camp the plan was to ride … Continue reading

Day 88 Havasu to Hoover

I got started at sunrise in Lake Havasu State Park. I packed up camp and headed to Dennys for breakfast and wi-fi. Dennys had no wi-fi, so I swung by ┬áBurger King, which also had no wi-fi. Then I just had to suck it up and head to the one place that I knew would … Continue reading

Day 87

Motel 6’s mattress took care of me and there is a good chance that I had the best sleep of the trip here in Lake Havasu. I felt so rested that coffee wasn’t my first thought. This would’ve been a great day to travel, but I was staying put, kind of. The plan was to … Continue reading

Day 86 Outstanding others, Oatman, and Offroading

A morning that was warm enough for a tee shirt! YES! My little desert hideout behind Mike’s Outpost and Saloon proved to be a good start to an amazing day. It didn’t take long to pack up and hit the road. The plan was to make it to Lake Havasu by nightfall and stop by … Continue reading

Day 85 A couple Mikes on Route 66

My previous nights time on the town left me searching for some hydration first thing in the morning. As usual checkout time was 11 and I was out of my Motel 6 suite in Williams AZ at 10:59 1/2 am. Williams sits right on a portion of Route 66. From my map, it looked as … Continue reading

Day 83.5 and 84 One last cold night at the canyon

Day 83.5? That is the other half of the day that I didn’t include in my post two days ago. Basically, I just rode around the Grand Canyon park aimlessly to check out anything that I just haven’t experienced yet. I stopped in to see the Maswik lodge, which I haven’t previously visited. There is … Continue reading
