Tofino, BC Part 2 – click on the pics


A few weekends ago I went on a two night trip to Tofino.  It’s a great little ocean town on the west coast of Vancouver Island.  My goal in the future when off call from work and off work in general is to try to take as many “little” trips as I can to get […]

TOFINO, BC Weekend to clear the head


If anyone has been following my “story” you will know I have recently separated from Cheryl.  Just this past week I became the sole owner of my house and needless to say I am overwhelmed with mixed emotions.  So, what I do best is get out of town on my F800 to clear my head.  […]

Best “Backyard” Riding Ever!


September 28th 2014 (all pics click-able for Hi-Rez) I woke up to a very FOGGY and misty morning.

Rode up to Chehalis Lake British Columbia today.  A decent logging road that takes you through shady forest areas to vistas with views to die for….temperature changes throughout the ride.  No cell coverage so I brought my SPOT just in case.  Here is the link to my track… DAY Trippin From my SPOT page

Day 28 – Butte, SD to Castlegar, BC


I have been back now almost 2 weeks and have had time to reflect on this trip.  I think I feel like most when we return home whether it’s from a weekend trip, month or longer.  I have the longing feeling to be back on the road.  Don’t get me wrong, life on the road […]
