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 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 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 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

Staying here in Manhattan Beach with Mickey, is a nice change of pace. My body gets to take a break from the bike for a couple of days and I get a bed to sleep in without the stress of waking up and blitzing out the door before checkout time. The temperature has been in … Continue reading

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 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

Day 33 Go west young man

Now that I’ve made it as far south as I can ride and back north to Georgia, again, it’s finally time to head west and for me that’s the great unknown. Everyday will inch me a little further across the country to the end goal of California. I’ve been waiting for this. Everything on the … Continue reading
