Greetings from the Mexican border!!! And welcome to my final post for this journey. I think we are all happy about that! As alluded to in one of my first blogs, you will finally be “treated” to an original poem.🙄💤🤓 Credits go to Dr. Suess and far too many readings of “The Cat In TheContinue reading “Blazin the Great Divide-Finale”

The Scene. Part 4: Blaze and The Bear Knife win Battle of No Potty!
Yet another…..One never knows how things may go! As you may recall, Son in Law Shawn gave me a very thoughtful gift before I left on this big adventure. A “Bear” knife 🤗😳 As stated previously, based on its size, and my knife fighting skills, I do not think it was actually meant to, norContinue reading “The Scene.

The Final Countdown
Happy Monday! Dateline: Somewhere deep in the hinterlands of New Mexico. (Cruzville if you can find it) BTW I swear there are more white pickup trucks here than there are residents.

That was kind of annoying……Part 2
GUESS WHAT??? 3 guesses and the first two don’t count as we used to say 😂 Yep! Another “Plan B” Day developed Thursday.

Your Heros at it again! 🙄😎 BREAKINGContinue reading “That was kind of annoying……Part 2”

Wednesday…What a difference a day makes…….
The calamity of one day ends and the opportunity of the next day awaits!!! So Tuesday was an “off the rails” day as we scrambled to repair the van and get back into the flow. With some semblance of order restored and an “option” day of riding available, I took the opportunity for a soloContinue reading “Wednesday…What a difference a day makes…….”
Tuesday…..Well, that was kind of annoying
Some days are just better or worse than others. Or simply more memorable? 😎. Today was one of those days. If you are ever sick of boring and ordinary, then may I suggest spending a few days on the trail with us. Our van suffered a major calamity this morning when our driver inadvertently crossedContinue reading “Tuesday…..Well, that was kind of annoying”
Well, well, well. Hello New Mexico!
Polar Lander??? Wasn’t “Mars” weird enough? A Franchising Opportunity! Okay…… First small towns in New Mexico I rode thru Everything seems normal here. Is Area 51, 52 or 53 anywhere near here?? I just feel “something” must be. We are on the final stages of the ride (10 stages to go) and I am gettingContinue reading “Well, well, well. Hello New Mexico!”
A shout out to The Big D
No, No, No!! Not a shout out to Dallas! The Big D I am referring to is my trainer Damian Harris…. intergalactically known as Big D!
