Day 130 East coastin

My weird night of sectional sleep was no match for my biological clock. You would think that a guy with just a few hours of sleep could at least make it to the crack of 9:30 once in a while. For whatever reason I woke at 7:30am, when my body really could have used a … 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

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.

Day 117 Northbound

He is traveling there to work one full week before returning home to West Virginia. Part of me wishes … Continue reading

Day 85 A couple Mikes on Route 66

My previous nights time on the town left me searching for some hydration first thing in the morning. As usual checkout time was 11 and I was out of my Motel 6 suite in Williams AZ at 10:59 1/2 am. Williams sits right on a portion of Route 66. From my map, it looked as … Continue reading

Day 72 A blitz to the AZ border. (Christmas Eve) Day 73 Merry Christmas from a town to tough to die.

It was Christmas Eve and I just wanted to get moving. The snow in Las Cruces was still falling, but the temps were just high enough to turn the slush into water. One thing was dominating my thoughts. I just wanted to get to Arizona. There really wasn’t a good reason to be in a … Continue reading
