KLIM Altitude Pants Review


I initially reviewed this new KLIM suit when I first got it back in April. Now that I have well over 8000 KM’s in it or 5000 miles I have some more impressions. I will try to stick with the facts of my experience with this suit and cut to the chase. These impressions I […]

KLIM Altitude Suit 2nd Impressions/Review

West to East Complete, well almost


First half of my trip mileage = Maple Ridge, BC to Long Island, New York is 7145 KM’s or 4,439 Miles. Gas mileage due to the x and head winds heading east was not that great. 5.1 L/100 Km’s. A little over 300 Km’s per tank. Heading west I should get much better mileage. What […]

Day 12 con’t and Day 13 – Revzilla & Coming Home


After I left a really sunny, HOT Washington DC, I went north to Philly. Still warm all the way up until about 120 KM’s outside Philadelphia. I noticed the temperature dropping from 35, 30, 20, 15, 12 C. I saw the skies darken which can only mean one thing…another Spring Storm. I sort of knew […]

Day 12 – Hot and COLD (Part I – DC)


After spending 2 nights and day at my brother’s families house in NC and a night at my old friend’s house in Williamsburg, VA, I left the south to head north to Philadelphia, PA to visit the REVZILLA relatively new store in Philly by the old Navy yard. I went to Colonial Williamsburg on my […]

Greasy Spoon and Revzilla


Stopped off for breakfast at T&N in Philly before heading over to Revzilla for a visit.

Day 11 – “I’m sorry I did not mean to hit your bike”


Day 11 = 571 Km’s – Matthews, NC – Wiliamsburg, VA Got your attention didn’t I? I stop at McD’s for wifi, bathroom breaks etc. Yesterday I actually got a quarter pounder, some calories, fat and food. Still feel as though I am not eating enough but seems like I am always snacking. I leave […]

Day 10 – Quick update


I was able to take two nights off and use a day to replenish some items I needed for the trip back , like get a new camping stove.  I broke my other one days ago. Now I can get back to at least boiling water when I want and need to.

Independence & Clean


Gear cleaned and new stove to replace the one I broke. Back to being able to cook on my own!

It’s Harder Than You Think Yet Easier


Day 8-635.4 KM’s Day 9-739.6 Km’s I have arrived on the east coast of the USA in North Carolina yesterday, May 25th. Took me 9 days to get here with a lot of boring pavement riding yet I was not really bored.

The HEAT


It’s hot in Kentucky and I’m off to Tennessee. The ride has been more challenging due to the heat today compared to the cooler weather.

Day 6 & 7 – Gratitude and A bit of a Set Back


Day 6 – 742.2 KM’s. Day 7 – 560 KM’s. Yesterday seems to be a blur to be honest. Even today because I am thinking too much. I supposed every ride report has a theme and this one seems to be amnesia.

Day 5 – I don’t like being a Carnivore


761.2 KM’s I have to say this…after riding today and seeing so MANY cattle pens where I know they are being raised just for their meat, I hate the fact I like meat. I am not a left-wing nut about being vegetarian or anything but when I see hundreds if not thousands of cows living […]

Day 4 – My Humbling Lesson (785.6 KM’s)


I woke up early this morning thinking I won’t wait for Cabelas to open and buy a new SPOT device, I will head southeast and get some mileage under my belt. Sun was shining, packed up quickly and headed towards what I thought was Casper, Wyoming. THOUGHT! Now, I could just not admit this stupid […]

Day 3 – X Winds, Hail & GHOST Rider (711.4 KM’s)


I need to start off by saying thank you to all the PM’s, emails and messages in general to the many out there that think I am “brave” for telling my story and going out on my own. It is what it is….I speak my mind and always have, perhaps too much. But in the […]
