Partnering with Revzilla


Revzilla is an online motorcycle everything you could dream of site that we have now partnered with on our blog.  If you look to the right on any page you will see a Revzilla widget.  Feel free to click the “ad” if you want to peruse their site and make a purchase.  This is our little way to try to recoup some costs associated with running a blog like this. 

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 3.22.20 AMI did not know this…someone made this comment…so, if you call in an order outside this blog and tell them about me, it would help…thanks again. Leslie

The reason I am writing to you, I ordered my first item from Revzilla.  I asked them if I could get you the credit for linking me to them and they said yes.  Since I travel, I am not able to use online, as my shipping address is always changing, so I call them direct.  So, you might share to your followers, that you can get credit at Revzilla, by just telling the order taker, that you were linked/referred to them by; Advgrrl.  They have you on file there and are happy to give you that credit.

 

Great customer service, no restocking fees on returns and if you call or email Revzilla you get advise from guys and gals who ride.  No strings attached, simply click the widget on our BLOG and shop away.  You might see more companies on this site which would only be companies we have dealt with and can 100% agree they are the best at what they do.  In the end, this is something I thought would help this blog grow and get even better for the future having some sort of infusion of cash.  When you buy through our site we do get a commission.  Just being open and transparent here.  Not a bad thing if you need gear and stuff and inadvertently support us too.  Thanks and happy shopping.

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Days 23 & 24


It’s that time to get to Long Island….😊  I am in Pennsylvania right now and will be heading out soon to finish this incredible X Country trip in my very fun Fiat 500L.

Fiat

Love this car, it did well on this trip and it really reminds me of my F800GS on 4 wheels.

Canada back to the USA.

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour Days 21-22


May 15 2015 (all picks can be clicked and enlarged)

Staying away from interstates is sure paying off with scenery and roads made for a NASCAR racer.  Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia all have great roads, made for bikes and sporty cars, intense Spring smells, scenery and since it’s before Memorial Day peaceful driving.

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Day 20 – THE DRAGON


May 12 2015-all pics clickable

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do all day here near Robbinsville, NC so I decided to drive up to Knoxsville, TN to check out some RV’s.  Just for the hell of it.  Unbeknownst  to me I ran into the real “Tail of the Dragon”…hence the above video.  I feel a little embarrassed to have thought I drove it the day before but hey…no map no clue.  Now I have an idea why many and I mean many come to drive or ride this road.

381 curves in 11 miles = WOW

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Day 19 – Parks, Glamping and the East


May 11 2015-UPDATE-I’m an idiot lol

Tail of the dragon Rocks! Just actual drove the real thing on my way to Knoxville 

Warm and muggy it was when I left Chattanooga, TN.  I only had a short drive to a place called River’s Edge Treehouse Resort in Robbinsville, NC

More about the resort in a bit.  The Cherokee National Park scenic by way was a treat to drive through. You can tell you are heading into the Blue Ridge/Smoky Mountain range when you see the difference in the trees and rolling hills. Continue reading

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Day 16


May 7 2015

Forecast

I drove across the plains of Iowa pretty straight through as my goal for this day was Springfield, MO.  It’s storm season around here and when I hit Kansas City, Kansas I got a taste of a wicked thunder, lightening and pouring rain storm cell.  I was on the main highway and the pools of water were deep.  My car was hit a few times with a “tsunami” like waves.

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Day 14 & 15 – Wall/Badlands


May 6th 2015

Badlands

Today was an interesting day.  Not driving but people.  2 random acts of kindness and a confession.  2 men paid for my coffees today after they heard I was moving, jobless and homeless.  Of course I elaborated but they both at different times felt compelled to help, and get this…they both thought I was in my 30’s.  Flattered to say the least and thanked them without saying you didn’t have too.  The last guy actually threw me a $20 bill…and said “you seem pretty smart, are you?  I know you are but here’s a $20…now put it to good use and best of luck.”  😇

Next guy I ran into owns a cattle feed lot.  OMG, I hate those lots and they also make me really want to be a veggie.  In any case, not about me.  He told me this funny little story.  He had cattle that did not like being kept in a small area full of food.  He swears this cattle was starving himself to death because he knew what was up.  This particular male would stand by the gate, refuse to eat or even have anything to do with the other cattle/herd.  He went on to say he was forced to let him out and roam.  He named this male determined.  Now a family “pet” and is healthy and eats.  I said politely, that is one smart BULL.  He laughed and we parted.

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Day 12 & 13


May 5th 2015

Day 12 was spent just cruising along from Billings, Montana to Deadwood, South Dakota.  Although much of the drive was flat I still find the surrounding in this area to be beautiful.  Weather was great, not too hot and I really did not stop much.  I wanted to get to the Blackhills, SD where I knew I was going to get a cabin and stay for two nights.  Needed to clean out my car, reorganize my “stuff”, just like I do when on my bike and of course sleep and relax. Continue reading

2015 Long Island or Bust Tour – Day 9 (My head)


April 30th 2015 (all pics in any of my posts can be clicked for HI REZ versions)

I feel like I am living the 2002 philosophical travel memoir by Neil Peart, Ghost Rider.  I get why he kept going out for his rides.

Best route for a car or bike
Best route for a car or bike

Everyday the roads I travel are stunning and beautiful.  Perfect for a bike or car.  However, this day despite what I was seeing my drive felt labored.  I knew at some point on this trip my head would give in to what I have left behind.  As I get closer to taking my Beagles ashes back to his spot in Wyoming, Cruizer’s rock I call it, I seemed to be feeling quite emotional. Today he would have been 11. Continue reading

Spending time in my my car with me has been healing.  The states of Nevada and Utah are so beautiful.  I highly recommend riding your bike on the roads I have been taking or drive.

I ended my day seeing this pair of Great Horn Owls.  Roosting by their nest.  So uninhibited and so beautifully perched.  Such an amazing creature and HUGE.
