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

Days 127, 128, 129 The past three days

  Day 127 Easy Living Morning number two at Bob and Wilma’s began with a few cups of coffee and a plum filled kolache. Wilma had already left for work and Bob was still sleeping. I quietly updated the blog until Bob woke. That day we didn’t have much planned. I wrapped up another post … Continue reading

Day 126 The Goode life

I woke from a solid nights sleep upstairs at Bob and Wilma’s. They have allowed me to stay in a nice bedroom until I head out on Saturday. I can’t complain one bit about that. When I walked down stairs Wilma had already left for work and Bob met up with John to head to … Continue reading

Day 125 Luckenbach to Houston. Look what the cat dragged in.

Two things were moving at a snail’s pace on the start of Day 125. First, there was the actual snail. On my way to grab some free continental breakfast I walked from the room to the lobby, next door, to get breakfast and couldn’t help noticing a snail with some weight on him. “Darn!” I … Continue reading

Day 124 Four months even. Luckenbach, peaceful perfection.

Four months on the road. At the rate of travel and the jammed packed amount of daily sight seeing I’ve experienced, I honestly can’t imagine another eight months of it. A full year at this pace would feel like ten years worth of life. Perhaps, that’s the key to eternal youth. Stop what you’re doing, … Continue reading

Day 123 Crossing paths and crossing Texas

Life’s a funny thing. We often try to take it by the horns and force our will, as intelligent beings, on it. That is a waste of energy though. Those horns are built on fundamental rules that this universe created when time began. Change is at the forefront of these fundamentals. Randomness is in there … 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

Day 71 Hibernation

My eyes opened, feet traveled to the motel rooms window, hand slowly opened the curtain, eyes reluctantly recorded the weather conditions. My fate was sealed. Snow that had been forecast┬áhad arrived. An inch was already on the roads. It was only 7am though. Checkout time was 11am and perhaps it would be safer to travel … Continue reading

Day 64 Amazing ride with a mysterious side

Here is a poem about my camcorder, which I’ve named Ojo. That’s pronounced oh-ho and it means, eye, in Spanish. After the day it’s given me, I should have named it Oh No. In the morning when I wake. It is cold and you shake. You shake and shiver and always quiver. I drink more … Continue reading

Day 63 On the move again, kind of

Campsite 95 has been home for my longest stop of the trip yet. I remember pulling into the campground last Thursday and immediately seeing two javalina just a few spots up. Boy, I was so nervous to fall asleep that night with all of the warning signs around the park. There are no lack of … Continue reading

About Me
