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 16

May 7 2015 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 […]

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

May 6th 2015 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 […]

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, […]

Day 24 – A New Friend, Myrtle Beach & What a SUNSET

February 6th 2015 – Day 24 It was chilly out this morning when I packed up.  I think it was about freezing.  I ended up using my heated liner and gloves all day.  I point this out because it’s the first time I have had to use heat for a while and the first time […]

Days off the Bike continued + My First Really Great Birthday

February 2nd, 2015 I felt like I had to get a post together on my 49th birthday.  What’s funny is that my father and I just came to realize I could use his iPad as a hotspot to access WIFI.  They don’t have internet at their home in Florida.  Long story but my folks feel […]

Lay Over – R&R in the Winter Florida Sun
