Riding up the mountain to Monarch Pass Colorado
will the name need to fit on your number plate? cp and mp fly safe..
I'm open to suggestions. But that is a good idea!
I am so glad Harley is in such good shape. Today she’s going to get a work out. Up, up, up we go from Pueblo to Clifton Colorado. I’m well over half way. The closer I get to my goal, the further I travel from home. It feels strange. Good then sad wrapped together. For the first time, I am going to sit down and have breakfast. All the Bestwesterns include it but I leave before...
I am the lone wolf, traveling on a suspiciously calm sea of soil, waiting for the waves to appear. It’s too calm, too quiet and too surreal. I have to endure the vastness of nothing one more day. My destination today is Pueblo Colorado. Soon the landscape will change. The mountains will be born slowly. Starting with rolling hills to thunderous displays of might. I’m looking...
Kansas, here I come!
I might have over extended myself when planning today’s destination. I’m scheduled to arrive today in Newton Kansas. The only problem is I have to ride 465 miles. That’s 100 miles more than yesterday. This will be my longest stretch so far. I left yesterday in the dark and arrived near dark. I might have to step up the pace some because in Kansas the weather can beat you...
Ting-a-ling-a-ling. I hope you stayed up last night to read about the legend of the Guardian Bell. If not, go ahead and catch up, I’ll wait but don’t take too long. I have 361 miles to go. Up to speed now? Good. One nice thing, today I gain an hour by entering the Central Time Zone in Illinois. Well I don’t really gain an hour because time is time. My watch just makes me...
Ahhh. I woke up today (4:45) feeling excited about today’s ride. I’m going to wear my half helmet which is more comfortable and I won’t have to worry about looking through a steamy visor. And I meet a new friend. When I was researching my trip I happen to stumble upon Ken’s web site and blog. He is a 70 year old man who, earlier this year, completed my same route with...
Got up around 5 AM. I am thinking weather today. It hailed last night at my first stop at the Bestwestern in Jonestown, PA. When I booked this adventure I went with the BW because they are motorcycle friendly. Figured I meet some other bikers, chit chat and such. This one was nice and clean and provided cover for my bike last night. Slept good for me, 5 hrs. All the bikes here are touring...
This morning I was feeling confident and strong as I got ready to ride. It was very tough saying goodbye to my wife and dogs at home but I knew it was for a special reason. When I arrived at the Berkshire Humane Society everything fell apart, emotional speaking that is. I was moved to see so many people (some I knew, some I did not) there to support me. I could feel the gratitude and...
