A vacation from vacation

My epic journey around ┬áthe 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

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 124 Four months even. Luckenbach, peaceful perfection.

Four months on the road. At the rate of travel and the jammed packed amount of daily sight seeing I’ve experienced, I honestly can’t imagine another eight months of it. A full year at this pace would feel like ten years worth of life. Perhaps, that’s the key to eternal youth. Stop what you’re doing, … Continue reading

Those horns are built on fundamental rules that this universe created when time began. Change is at the forefront of these fundamentals. Randomness is in there … 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 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

Day 62 TWO MONTHS DOWN!

December 14th marked my two month anniversary on the road. This short time has, without a doubt, been the most incredible life enriching experience I’ve ever had. To have the opportunity to live life exactly as you want for anytime longer than a weekend is special. We work all year to take that vacation, and … Continue reading
