Videos from the road. West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. The early days

TThis is the Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina. It is the nations largest home and was built by George Vanderbilt one hundred and seventeen years ago. It has forty three bathrooms, thirty four bedrooms, and sixty five fireplaces. I paid nearly fifty dollars to do the walk through tour the day that I visited … 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

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 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 117 Northbound

Here’s the post that I didn’t want to write as I left home nearly four months ago. Time for Brittany to leave San Diego came after a pleasant nine-day stay. We had plenty of fun on her dime and I’m thankful for it. My dimes can now be counted on a few hands, hence the … Continue reading

Day 107 Traveling again

Morning began with immediate packing. I woke around 7 am. Mickey needed  to be out of the room by 8:30 in order to grab a quick breakfast and make his flight from LAX to San Francisco. He is traveling there to work one full week before returning home to West Virginia. Part of me wishes … Continue reading

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 58 Foggy to Fantastic

Time 5:57am. Problem, I was awake. Solution, get packing. For what? Big Bend National Park, the place that I’ve been more nervous about visiting than any other place on the journey. Why? Mostly the media and secondly, it is one of the most remote places in the United States. From everything I’ve read about the … Continue reading

Day 57 Ozona to Fort Stockton TX

Let’s see. How can I turn 106 miles of riding through a desert wasteland into an interesting post? Well I’m not really sure. The ride out of Ozona toward Fort Stockton on 10w is what most would describe as no mans land. One big brown rolling hill after another speckled with the same red and … Continue reading

Day 54 Luckenbach, the coolest place I’ve been.

I’ve got to gripe a bit about my camcorder before I get on with what happened on day 54. When it’s cold I shiver and my camcorder shivers too. Literally. When the camera gets cold it will vibrate a such a high frequency that getting a good pic is impossible. What I usually have to … Continue reading
