During the first weekend of December there were blizzards raging through the Midwest, but I was safely burying my toes in the sands of Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida. No, I wasn’t the one getting married, but I was in the wedding party. It was a wonderful weekend for old friends […]

Riding to the Top of the World
The Top of the World is cold in August. Within the last week of riding I’ve gone from blazing heat in Kansas to the rainy cold of Montana. And I’m so tired…
Center of My Known Universe
Things I’ve learned riding to the center of my American Universe:
