Lower 48 (Elliott’s Post)

Lower 48

Last time I updated the blog I was sitting in a diner in Southern British Columbia deciding where I was going to go next. It was either head south into Montana or East into Alberta and then drop into Montana from there.

While I was thinking it over I decided to get . . . → Read More: Lower 48 (Elliott’s Post)

Dad’s In Town (Elliott’s Post)

Ok so I gotta get going cause today is the day that I’m meeting my Dad! For those that don’t know – another long story short: I was on a cross country motorcycle trip last year and my bike broke down in Eastern Montana. It sat around in a dude’s garage that I met and . . . → Read More: Dad’s In Town (Elliott’s Post)

And the Adventure Continues…Day 2 with Dad (Elliott’s Post)

Did I mention that my Dad and I rode 425 miles yesterday? I think I did but that’s pretty amazing considering I don’t think I have ridden that far on any day this whole trip and that was my Dad’s first day on the bike. That’s pretty cool.

We’re having a great time together on . . . → Read More: And the Adventure Continues…Day 2 with Dad (Elliott’s Post)

Luck runs out…

Well yesterday was an interesting day…

We left Pierre, SD driving down highway 14 with a destination in mind of Rochester, MN (about 450 miles away).

Beautiful day, easy riding (but please, read on). We stopped by Laura Ingalls Wilder childhood home and then on to a great town called Brookings, SD. Dad loved this . . . → Read More: Luck runs out…

The Eagle Has Landed…

Woke up with my fingers crossed hoping that the motorcycle shop in Rochester would have the right chain to fit my Dad’s motorcycle. Turns out that they had one (literally just one).

Went out to pick up the chain and Dad went and got a couple tools and made bologna sandwiches and then we got . . . → Read More: The Eagle Has Landed…

On the road again… Woo Hoo!!!!

[Geoff’s post- Elliott’s back at work!] 🙁

Well- it’s been a fantastic week in Pender Island with Jackie and her family. It was soo good to get the bike clean(over 3 hours and not really done), clean all my gear and actually spend a few days in a row in the same place- even if . . . → Read More: On the road again… Woo Hoo!!!!

A Look Back (Elliott’s last post)

Now that I’ve been back in Chicago a few days, I’ve had time to reflect on the trip.

Geoff is still on the road, sounds like he won’t be “toofless” and “passportless” much longer. Geoff, I red your retorts to the bets. Fine, I should have shook hands on the $1000 bet so we’ll let . . . → Read More: A Look Back (Elliott’s last post)


Breakfast in Omak…

I spent the night in Twisp, WA. Got in at 1030PM and got up at 6am to the sound of trucks 20’ from my head… they shook the tent. Suboptimal sleeping conditions. Got up, headed down the road 45 miles to a diner in Omak, WA. It’s Rodeo time here… and their . . . → Read More: Omak

Bye Bye Beemers…

The ride from Omak further east was nice but fairly uneventful. I guess we need those rides every now and then… too much adventure can make it all stale!

Highway 20 in eastern WA is gorgeous… every bit of it. Had some flashbacks of Alaska though as it rained on me three times yesterday, with . . . → Read More: Bye Bye Beemers…

Small (wet)world

So I left Lakeside for the ride to Glacier NP. It was a short ride away and I was looking forward to it.

As I am leaving breakfast, a guy comes up and starts talking my ear off. That’s what happens when you are on road. Whether you like it or not sometimes. He says . . . → Read More: Small (wet)world
