    Rolling again... Mt Rainier, WA



    Rolling again Mt Rainier, WA

    Savoring the moments with each mile with an incredible handling rig, Mt Rainiers breathtaking beauty, snow in July, incredible weather, great company, a happy Spirit what more would I ask for! I must have done something right to deserve all this. What an accomplishment on Andys part to have spend unselfishly so many hours reconstructing the rig from ground up There is Karma, I cannot ignore it. It makes me await the future with excitement as the times to come can only be filled with the great pictures of a life that can only have more positive aspects
    More pictures on the Blog

    Be well

    Just like a maiden voyage... WA



    Just like a maiden voyage. WA

    No having my usual Internet connection has been enjoyable seems like we have much more time a double edge sword however the jury is still out. This feels as part II of the Journey everything has been fixed redone realigned I just wish I was more mechanically inclined as I have, it seems like, done my share of damage and ill repairs
    The sights are incredible camping by ourselves only silence only the birds in concert
    Sunsets on the hills and more on the Blog

    You be well

    More of Washington State...




    More local riding and stuff WA

    The word on everyones mind is HOT 104 degrees today uncomfortable after being used to some cool weather. Have to watch Spirit closely, stay under cover or keep moving. After a day at Dauntless, having the sidecars disc brake reworked on, great results by the way, courtesy of Jay, we even went up the pass to I thought lay on the snow and cool off. But no more snow! All has melted, except on the peaks of course.

    Mt St Helen weekend... WA (part I)



    Mt St Helen weekend WA (part I)

    What a coincidence to be on the same route and destination as the Northwestern Moto Guzzi riders we end up camping close by and enjoying their food and company Learned a couple cooking tips after all these years a ride to Mt St Helen
    Today however I have written some thoughts about Life and this Journey following some interesting conversations with other riders tomorrow will be about the weekend all on the website. Lets think about this as a two part to Mt St Helen

    Be well

    Up Mt St Helen... WA (part II)



    Up Mt St Helen WA (part II)

    Does not seem that I can write it all in one page or so too many pictures also It was a great weekend being close by the Northwest Guzzi riders a great and kind group of riders After all, I was the outsider!
    I will leave my feelings toward Mt St Helen for the next time eerie transcending deep thoughts ground zero of a 9/11 with Mother Nature responsible for such destruction and taking so many lives
    In the meantime you can check out how to make an omelet in a ziplock bag and the sights of this Tropical like forest we have been in all on the website.

    Be well

    We were worried about why you were not there. Some of the attendees had claimed to see you on sight. You had a full tent! Sorry there was a miscommunication.

    I even tried to find "your" e mail address as to not desapoint your daughter... to no avail... This has been the worse thing happening since we have been on the road... Mandy did write today that they just were so overwhelmed...
    So sorry... again! I feel so bad and hope that everyone forgives me... This is from a person that is never late and everyone can always count on...
    Hopefully next year in Wyoming...

    Be well... stay in touch...

    Seeing Mt St Helen is believing!... WA




    Seeing Mt St Helen is believing WA

    We finally have made it to the Olympic Peninsula which will start riding tomorrow seems to be a lot of riders going around most heavily packed must be a destination
    But today is about the last day up Mt St Helen I promise this is the end of it with the salmon and a little dish of my own a favorite that I have been craving since I left Georgia
    All on the website
    Enjoy and be well

    Olympic Peninsula... WA



    Olympic Peninsula WA


    The forecast is rain and more rain I do ride in the rain and so does Spirit This would be a good time to test his cover at higher speeds and of course his raincoat! We end up in Port Townsend yesterday, todays plan was to see the ocean, also the rain forest maybe as there is so much to see here. This forecast is of the same for the coming three days in the meantime you can read about yesterday, the ride, meeting some BARF riders and the worse of the 10 best voted cheeseburger! I just cannot figure that one out yet
    The roads are great here, the feel of the land even better, the locals are friendly and the view, well you will have to see the website for it.

    Be well

    Lake Cushman and back... WA




    Lake Cushman and back WA

    Miles and miles of logging roads to ride around here, we did some with Jim for most of the day as the rain was on and off sparing us a bit.
    It is relaxed laid back not much of a choice as the rain gear never dries out. Better days are in the forecast to ride on the other side of the Peninsula ans see the Ocean again.
    The rig is doing great, solid, and as Jim rides an identical one we took some time to inspect each others ride
    There is an oyster Farm just across the street we had some and more, all on the website.
    You be well send us some sunshine.

    Th SUN is back... WA



    The SUN is out WA

    It is news when the SUN is out added energy from its rays smiles are all around on the ride we went, up Hurricane Ridge, real energizing. I say we, as besides Spirit, Mike with his V Strom joined us and smart, rode behind us! At least he did not have to wait.
    Many riders out today, I can tell they are camping from the gear strapped on have no clue where they are going I think it is the sunshine everyone must be in shock feeling great! as we are. Even the ones stopped are not talking!!!
    A chicken recipe template figure that one out! and more pictures on the website.

    Till next time and always be well.

    The Olympic Peninsula loop... WA



    The Olympic Peninsula loop WA

    A long riding day for us considering we stop often for Spirit you know and what a great day it was! With the windshield removed I am still amazed at the difference in the handling, speeds and gas mileage
    The loop is awesome and I do now understand why so many bikes pass by here never to be seen backtracking. Beautiful coastline, Indian Reservation little town, friendly people how can they not be when they see Spirit wearing his Doggles
    I even made an illegal U turn right on 101, never seeing the Ranger parked across the road decided I better have an excuse and ask her for some phony directions before getting a ticket she was laughing her head off when she saw him!!! Spirit the savior not a word about the U turn!
    And much more of this great day on the website

    Be well

    The road to Neah Bay and more... WA




    The road to Neah Bay and more WA


    What a day! How come many had told me to skip 112 to Neah Bay when I find it one of the most picturesque and challenging road on the Peninsula? Trying to keep it a secret?
    Some sand sculptures in Port Angeles and the best meet? Zak and Duchesse 3 years on the road this is when one can say a picture is worth a thousand words.
    Breakfast with some great Adv Riders before their 3 to 4 day take off for a big circle of the land here what else? Just have to see it all in the website

    Be well
