More Lazy Egging, San Francisco to LA. October 13 – November 1, 2015.

Another elaborate logistical dance of airplanes, friends, work, and borrowing Pete’s bike was about to go down – you know, the regular drill now. By the end of it, I believe I’d be responsible for about 3/4 of the mileage on his bike, Endy2. I count myself extraordinarily fortunate...

Adventures in Philly, Wedding Crashing in Richmond. October 5-12, 2015.

I’ve sliced Connecticut east-west so many times, I already had a clear favorite route in mind: pass by the Scituate Reservoir, route 14 into CT, smaller roads (Machine Shop Hill Rd) aiming for CT-16. Once west of Hartford staying quite far south, I could decide how to proceed. It’s...

New England Again, the Adventure Continues. July 28 – October 4, 2015.

I was afraid that upon returning to Providence, I would find myself hugely changed against a static landscape. In truth, time does move differently on the road. The events of a few days easily expands to fill the space of what might otherwise be a month of fixed-location human...

Ski’s Shrimp Run, and What’s Next. July 24 – 27, 2015.

The morning came too soon. I wished I could stay longer to celebrate, but life for this full-time scooterist is rarely easy. However, it’s rarely dull, and often it’s beautiful and fun. It was a new day, and I had many miles to cover for an appointment with a...

Descent on Lubec. July 21 – 23, 2015.

New England is a creaky floorboards kind of place, home to history, turned wood furniture, quilts, and closets that make me wonder if monsters dwell within. There’s something a little magical here, but it’s a salty, old-world kind of magic. It’s where a younger version of me first found...

Dumptrucks and Tractor Pulls, still a Long Wade to Go. July 16 – 18, 2015.

The red eye flight back east was predictably punishing, exacerbating the soreness between my shoulder blades that rafting failed to banish, but there were two things I was very much looking forward in Pittsburgh: Jack was back, and I’d soon be reunited with my own bike! We immediately made...

Sanrio Surprise! Return to California. June 24 – July 15, 2015.

What a contrast, arriving at San Francisco airport to be picked up by bike again, but this time on Pete’s new 300 Super. I hadn’t seen him since the two weeks following the collision and was skeptical of his condition for operating a bike, but you can’t keep a...
