West Coast Spring 2018 – Santa Fe, Part One

May 29 – June 1 With a seven-hour drive ahead of us we got on the road early, walking out the door with Bev as she left for work.  We’d be splitting the 11-hour drive to Santa Fe into two stages, doing the lion’s share today with an overnight in Dalhart, Texas giving us a […]

South East Spring Swing, Corpus Christi #2

March 16-18 Knowing that we would need to get an early start the next day for the long drive to New Orleans (made longer due to the closure of the I-10), we slept in and dawdled Friday morning.  Once we got ready to move out we bandied about several options and decided to make it […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas, Part Five

April 4-17 We met Roberta and Mark at Mellow Johnny’s as planned and spent a bit more time there perusing the stock, particularly the attractive jersey’s and short combinations (kits) offered. Unfortunately like most good bike clothing, they were a bit more than I wanted to spend at that time. I instead opted for a […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas, Part Four

April 4-17 It rained pretty hard that first night, a fitting test for the new tent, which we found held up quite well to the downpour. Gaining a secure environment with a new tent requires a bit of patience as you make minor adjustments to the set up and pitch. It would take us a […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas, Part Three

April 4-17 Late in the week we’d connected with Dave again and arranged to meet at their place on Saturday to ride our bikes on the north section of the Salado Creek Greenway. We arrived late in the morning and after unloading the bikes from the car took off to ride the few blocks to […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas, Part Two

April 4-17 The weather cleared up briefly the next day giving us an opportunity to catch a bike ride, get the car washed and then later meet up with an old friend. It had been warm and muggy when we arrived the night before and this continued on into the next day, so after breakfast […]

ACUI San Antonio – A Little Taste of Texas

April 4-17 I’d been contemplating attending the annual ACUI Conference in San Antonio since last fall, and after some deliberation and talking with my former boss Jim, decided to give it a go, particularly since neither Joanna or I had spent any time in Texas. We both viewed it as an opportunity to introduce ourselves […]

Holiday 2014 – The Long Drive East, Part One

January 26-30, 2015 We set off the morning of Monday, January 26th to begin what would be a number of long days of driving. Our plan was to put in ten hours plus to Las Cruces, New Mexico, then twelve hours to Houston, Texas for two nights with Stephanie and Lee, a short six hour […]
