The end is in sight

August 26, 2013

Today, while riding, we wore short sleeves for the first time! I know we’re close to home! Our research tells us that we have crossed 33 state lines in 11,500 miles. We left Oklahoma on July 29th and will be home tomorrow, August 27th. We rode 4 ferries (Suzanne doesn’t know about the last one […]

Winding down

August 25, 2013

The trip may be winding down but we’re still going strong. Kinda like the energizer bunnies. Most exciting thing that happened today was NO RAIN! At least not enough to matter. We left the state not feeling much love for the weather there. But make no mistake.. there was plenty of rainwater still standing. After […]

The trip continues

August 24, 2013

We have had a wonderful time! Yesterday we did the tourist thing most of the day. Everything from the landmarks, to Duval Street, to the turtle races and on to the sunset celebration at Mallory Square. What a way to end our completion of the four corners! It’s apparent that we have been running on […]


August 23, 2013

Yes, we can check it off our bucket list! This morning we rolled into our fourth corner, Key West. My trip meter read 10,199 miles. As soon as we had our final gas receipt and official photo, the celebration began. Suffice it to say that we started with a really good meal and some adult […]


August 22, 2013

After another crappy day, we finally find ourselves close enough to smell Key West! Seems to becoming a regular thing with us and mechanical problems. This morning we were at Ademco H-D before they opened. Shortly afterward, they had Suzanne fixed up. The folks at that dealership were so very nice and accommodating. We got […]

Short and sweet

August 21, 2013

Ok folks, tonight is going to be short and sweet! Today, we decided, was probably our worst day so far. Besides having to camp out and wait for HOURS for my bike to be finished, we ran into some more rain and Suzanne started having some steering issues. No one can look at it today […]


August 20, 2013

I have been banned from even looking at ferries for the remainder of the trip! Besides throwing us off time-wise, it put us at the only motel for miles! And it was horrible!!!! It was so bad we don’t even want to talk about it. Or publish pictures either. We were (operative word is “were”) […]

Rain and more ferries!

August 19, 2013

Looks like there’s going to be rain for the next few/several days! So, we’re just trying to make the best of it. When we parked last night we were about 1300 miles away from Key West. That’s as the crow flies. In order to finish within our 21 day time frame, we need to be […]

Connecticut at sunrise

August 18, 2013

In case we didn’t tell you last night, we shut it down and tucked it in really early. I set the alarm for 4am but we were up by 3:45. Our plan was to get a jump on the crazy traffic in this part of the world. And we did just that! We had logged […]

Bean town

August 17, 2013

Another long day today! We left later than we ever had then we made the wrong road choice leaving Bar Harbor. It was so beautiful, very scenic! But you always give up something to get something! This morning we gave up speed for the scenic ride. Got to the stop and go point so we […]
