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. For the third night in a row I managed a solid three hours of sleep. This time caffeine had nothing to do with … Continue reading

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 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 99 Thank you, thank you, thank you for the tire!

I woke with a mission. The Goose needed a rear tire. I’m guessing I could squeeze one or two more days out of it before it let go and left me stranded on some unfamiliar road in California. Luckily I had teammates on my side. My good friends at Crossroads Yamaha-Suzuki in Albe Marle, North … Continue reading

Day 90 Three states a day will keep the doctor away.

Nevada’s Valley of Fire State Park is a fascinating place. When I arrived there the evening before, I had little time to get a feel for it. Sure, I saw some red formations but they were just at the campground and the eastern entrance. That morning after packing up camp the plan was to ride … Continue reading

Day 89 All fired up

Although seeing downtown Las Vegas from my room at the Americas Best Value Inn was no problem, I didn’t realize until morning that I was actually within the Henderson Nevada city limits and not actually in Las Vegas. I wasn’t bothered by that fact though. One look at sin city in the morning from afar … Continue reading

Day 87

Motel 6’s mattress took care of me and there is a good chance that I had the best sleep of the trip here in Lake Havasu. I felt so rested that coffee wasn’t my first thought. This would’ve been a great day to travel, but I was staying put, kind of. The plan was to … Continue reading
