    Introduction

    Hope this isn't a breach of decorum...

    One of those things you mess around with when you have a few hours of free time is storytelling. Now, I'm *not* the best storyteller by any means, but there's a few travel stories that I've been fortunate enough to have been a part of. There's usually some pictures that go along with the story, which helps make it compelling. I hope.

    So, since I am not of the Facebook kind, this is one way of telling those stories. I have done a lot of reading myself over the years of the stories from other riders. A couple of people have influenced me recently to get off my butt and start writing. Thanks to them for their excellent stories and photography for the inspiration to do this. I'm hopeful mine is half as good as theirs.

    I've already written a couple of epic tales, and they had been squirreled away on a couple of motorcycle-specific web forums. Who knows, there may be others - away from motorcycling - that might enjoy them. If not, they may be a good substitute for inducing sleep. After a month of work, I've managed to get thru all of these stories, simply by looking at the photos, and reminiscing about them.

    Some of these stories are quite extensive, some of them will be really, really short. Many times, other travelers - motorcyclists specifically, like to have a bit of an idea of where you went, what you saw, that sort of thing. For many of the longer entries, there's a LOT more photography that I'd like to share, but there is a point where it's just too much. So, I've done my best to tell enough and show enough for there to be some story to tell. It's hoped that with continued practice, maybe I'll get better at this.

    One page on this blog will have a list of upcoming stories. I've also got a page that will go to Spotwalla (a personal tracking web service) when I'm on one of these adventures on where I am at any given time.

    This link is the home page for the blog.

    Travels on Two Wheels

    This link is the first story to tell - from a long time ago. Hit up the blog for the rest of them!

    With apologies to Jean Shepherd

      So...

      When you start to feel like crap, you care only about feeling better. A week and a half into our little trip, that's what happened. My blogging, and a lot of other things, kinda slowed to a crawl while I fought to get feeling better. Meanwhile, the trip did continue.

      The last blog entries have been cleaned up - and hopefully the pictures decide to stay linked to their entries.

      Ugh.
