A vacation from vacation

My epic journey around  the country on a motorcycle is over for now and reality has reared its ugly head. Now what? For the past week I’ve been in vacation mode. I know that sounds odd, but when you consider the daily travel and job-like persistence of my daily blogging, it feels like I never … Continue reading

Day 132 Home, a new definition

I described Day one as mighty. Day one hundred and thirty two, the final day, could be summed up as peculiar. It began similar to every other day that I’ve experienced in the last four months. I was at a random motel, knocking out a post, packing my things and loading the Goose up for … Continue reading

Day 131 Crossroads and Back Roads

Day 131, my last full day of traveling on this wonderful road trip. The next day, day 132, will take me home, but the journey’s not over yet. There were still 450 miles in between me and my final stop. I decided to break this up into two days to leave a little extra time … Continue reading

Take me home, country roads!

It seems like yesterday that we were carving through the sweeping turns of the Skyline Drive, sending you off into the great unknown. But the day count says otherwise. While were were stuck in the 9 to 5 box, waiting to get through the day, you have been out there exploring the faraway corners of … 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 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 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

Days 59 and 60 Big Bend. The prettiest thing I’ve seen without two legs

Big Bend greeted me with a cold clear morning after my first nights camp at the park. Another bird also greeted me as I was making coffee and grabbing a bite to eat. This feathered foul friend was a road runner like the ones from the cartoons. He scoped me out for a bit hoping … Continue reading

Day 30 ONE MONTH ON THE ROAD!

 

A few thoughts with one week behind me.

I feel great. There is no doubt that I’ve made the right decision for my overall mental well being. Like a caged animal who has just been released, I feel free. I do not want this state of being to end.  I have felt very little homesickness.  I’ve been humbled a few times already from … Continue reading
