Day 97 On the road again, on my own again

My short stay with my brother Shane and extended family had to come to an end. Vegas is just too big and expensive for my tight ¬†budget. They will stay there until Saturday, but I had to continue on. Money willing, I would have stayed until Saturday also. That morning I woke from a good … Continue reading

Day 96 Quality time in Vegas

Quality time in Vegas sounds like some sort of oxymoron. Time in Las Vegas is usually described with terms like wild, crazy, blasted, or blurry. My day began around noon due to the previous nights wild, crazy, blasted and blurry time. The folks had some breakfast delivered to the Panoramic Suite and unfortunately I missed … Continue reading

Day 95 Family

Day 95, a BIG day, and it all started at 4am. I woke up in my lavish tent at the Lake Mead campground with the wheels turning in my head. Night time is the greatest time for solid thinking. Being a really light sleeper, I get more than my share of this quite time and … Continue reading

Day 94 Three months and a day

The three month marker just passed me the day before, January 14th, and I forgot to mention it. On October 14th 2011 I clicked the bike into first gear in my brothers driveway with no clue as to how life would be in the immediate future. On November 14th I felt like I was on … Continue reading

Day 93 A timeout from Las Vegas

Three hours after falling asleep around 7 am, I was back up and seriously thinking about just renting the room again so that I could get a few more hours of shut eye. Checkout time was at 11 am and I was sooooo tired. Getting the room again would require a short groggy walk to … Continue reading

Day 92 What happens in Vegas happens to cool people

It’s safe to say that the first half of day 92 wasn’t exactly productive. When I get real loose and have a good time I call the creature that I morph into the Zombie. The Zombie may have a scary name, but shouldn’t be feared. He likes music with a fun beat, socializing using the … 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 89 All fired up

Although seeing downtown Las Vegas from my room at the Americas Best Value Inn was no problem, I didn’t realize until morning that I was actually within the Henderson Nevada city limits and not actually in Las Vegas. I wasn’t bothered by that fact though. One look at sin city in the morning from afar … 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 ¬†Burger 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
