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 119 Walking under giants

Today was the day I had patiently waited for. The day where I would do nothing other than bask in one of our planets greatest treasures. The redwoods. I had a full foggy, damp day to take it all in. A dark, seclusive morning greeted me at Humbolt Redwoods State Park. Again I barely got … Continue reading

Day 118 Big waves, big coast, and FINALLY big trees.

The entire night before I had the, kid waiting for Christmas morning, feeling. Basically I laid there in my Motel 6 penthouse suite, waiting for morning to come. Two things were keeping me awake. The first one was knowing that the coming days ride would take me to the giant redwoods of northern California, the … Continue reading

Day 117 Northbound

Here’s the post that I didn’t want to write as I left home nearly four months ago. Time for Brittany to leave San Diego came after a pleasant nine-day stay. We had plenty of fun on her dime and I’m thankful for it. My dimes can now be counted on a few hands, hence the … Continue reading

Days 115 and 116 Superbowl Sunday and Migraine Monday

Day 115, superbowl Sunday, started out with a morning so uneventful that it’s not worth writing about. Our day really began as we headed to the Gaslamp District again in downtown San Diego. After a late lunch at TGI Fridays we strolled around until we found a suitable watering hole to watch the big game. … Continue reading

Day 114 Pretty-Awesome

I haven’t mentioned it before, but since Brittany has been here we have planned to swing up to Anaheim for the next round of Supercross which fell on day 114. She sponsored our time there. That was our mission of the day. Travel a smooth one hundred miles north and back. Going from San Diego … Continue reading

Day 113 Re-relocating

KOA and my cramped little Kelty tent have been home for the past three days. Brittany and I really didn’t need to head back to San Diego yet, but three nights of laying on the ground with no room to stretch out was good enough for us. Transporting our things is the tricky part in … Continue reading

Day 112 Motoring up to Lake Elsinore

Morning came and my thumb was looking good and feeling ok. Good start to the day. Brittany survived another night in the wilderness known as KOA. ¬†We were both doing good and just wanted to grab breakfast somewhere. Our tastebuds wanted something with a bit of flavor, but the need for some wi-fi took us … Continue reading

Day 111 La Jolla

Sleeping overnight was a pain in the rear with the pain in my thumb. I couldn’t get the throbbing to stop, even if my thumb wasn’t touching anything. It’s hard to find a position to lay in where your hand remains elevated and your thumb isn’t resting on something. Eventually pure fatigue set in and … Continue reading

Day 110 K.O.A. bound

Motel 6 near the San Diego airport has been home for the last few days. Our time there has been pretty smooth with just one unsavory incident that happened just minutes after Brittany arrived at the room for the first time. We were staying in room 237 and our not so lovely neighbors were in … Continue reading
