Running to Plymouth Rock

Today Chuck and I ‘killed two birds with one stone’ so-to-speak by seeing Plymouth, Massachusetts (home of the infamous Plymouth Rock) while participating in the Run to the Rock Half Marathon. It seemed like a perfect fit for several reasons: We were in the vicinity, we wanted to see Plymouth Rock, I needed to do a long […]

Chuck to Travel (by Bicycle) from FL to CA!

Never Forget Your Dreams. ~ Korczak Ziolkowski This is one of Chuck’s favorite quotes, and it comes from the sculptor of the great Crazy Horse Mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota (big surprise, huh?). It is a quote Chuck has always taken to heart. Building an Experimental Airplane from blocks of foam and […]

Saving & Sharing Your Travel Photos

What do you do with all of your travel photos when you’re on the road? Do you have a way to keep your memories safe in case disaster strikes (a stolen camera, laptop or accident involving your RV) or an easy method for sharing your photos & experiences with far-away family and friends? These are […]

Riding THROUGH Trees

Today, I rode my bike through a Tree. Yeah, it’s hard to believe you can ride a bike through a living tree. What is truly amazing is I drove our pick-up through this same tree, a few months ago. Driving through the California Redwoods is just something you can’t explain; you have to do it […]

Cycling Death Valley National Park to Badwater

Yesterday I rode into Death Valley. It was one of my hardest rides. It was mostly down hill but the wind was terrible. I can’t ever remember pedaling so I could go down hill! That is how strong the wind was. It was also 84 degrees but cloud cover helped me from over heating. At […]

Cycling Long Beach around the Queen Mary

25th Anniversary

How do you like our bike jerseys? I bought Cheryl her nice new “Wedding Gown” and my “Tux” for this special occasion – our 25th! We were married on the Queen Mary and just had to come back to celebrate our 25th there. What a great ship. I even took my Beautiful Bride to a […]

Poker Run

Today Chuck, Shadow, and I went on a Bicycle Poker Run in Fallon, NV. Shadow and I rode 12 miles before stopping as the temperatures were just too hot for her. The weather here in Fallon has been in the high 90s for the past week, and will continue for the next. Chuck continued and […]

Bike Ride Yosemite

Been awhile since I last added to our blog, no excuse except I have been having too much fun. I have a lot to catch up on. The desert was a hard place to leave; it really is beautiful in its own way. The Saguaros are neat. We have been to Sedona, Flagstaff and Sequoia […]

Tucson Indian Center Bike Ride

As part of Tucson’s Clean Air Days and Bike Festival 2009 month long festivities, the Tucson Indian Center sponsored a community bike ride Saturday. The ride was along Santa Cruz River. It has been awhile since we did a ride together and it really felt great. We got two t-shirts to celebrate the ride. We […]

GPS – How accurate?

Today we went geocaching at City of Rocks, NM. Geocaching is looking for hidden stuff – anyway thanks to RVGypies for getting us interested in it. We used Cheryl’s Garmin Forerunner GPS 305 and how accurate was it? It took us one foot from the hidden cache (check out the photo). We started looking for […]
