North Carolina Spring 2021, Part Two

June 3 – 14, 2021 Heading out of the airport was like returning home; hard to believe that just 11 years in a place can make it seem like somewhere you spent most of your life.  This trip for us would be different than the many we usually we take, in that we’d be doing […]

Hot Springs 2021, Part Five

May 13 – 24, 2021 Our next day in Henderson would be a full one, starting with dropping off the BMW at the dealer to replace a burned-out driving light.  Leaving it until later in the day, we all made our way to one of the highlights of the weekend, Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart. It […]

Hot Springs 2021, Part One

May 13 – 24, 2021 May arrived with rapidly declining Covid rates and Joanna and I fully vaccinated, began to plan for a return to our routine of the last seven years of abundant travel.  This next trip would mirror those we did last year during the height of the crisis, indeed much of what […]

Fall Western States, Part Five

November 2 – 13, 20 After the Museum we dropped off Dillon at his and McKenzie’s apartment, a nice two bedroom in a cool area of downtown and returned to the Airbnb to rest up before heading out again to meet them at our choice for dinner that night, Brewery Emperial.  Seated outside underneath a […]

The Move, Part Two

May 1 – June 10 We worked steadily on packing after our return from the CNC Coast ride, generally in the morning but often waiting until the afternoon so we could get a bike ride in before it warmed up.  Although the deadline was tight and we had committed to loading the PODS on Monday […]

Europe 2017 – Summary, Part One

August 24 – November 15   This trip was unlike any that we have taken in the past.  Three major factors defined this difference: We would not, except for a brief period, be using a car for transportation We would not do any camping With the exception of our time with Francois, we would not […]

Europe 2017 – Montpellier, Part Six

October 27 – November 1 After parking in a lot just outside the walls of Aigues-Mortes, we walked through one of the large gates that enable access to the town and began our exploration.  A few blocks into our journey we hit a main square, surrounded by shops, restaurants and a small art gallery that […]

Europe 2017 – The Camino de Santiago – Part Eight

October 9 – 12, Sahagun to Ponferrada Breakfast at Viatoris the morning we left Sahagun was a delight with coffee, juice, a small wrapped pastry to take with us and the closer, thinly sliced Serrano ham on toast. Tanks full, we mounted up and took off for another day of riding through the Meseta, or […]

Europe 2017 – The Camino de Santiago – Part Seven
