A Quest For Culture, Cuisine, And Connection.

Around The World On A Motorcycle | The Journey Continues

Computer In For Repair

I’ve got a bit of an issue with my new Apple Powerbook G4. Seems that there’s a loose connection in the logic board or DC-in board inside the computer. So I’ve spent the day in the Seattle area Apple store and the computer will be sent out for a repair. I hope to have it […]

Time For New Shoes

Waking up to the hussle and bustle of busy business people pulling rolling luggage down the hall of my hotel I remember that there is just one other set appointment I must make — to get new tires and change the oil at the Seattle area BMW dealer, RideWest BMW. With only 1,750 miles on […]

Wine In Washington

It’s been nearly five years since I visited the Seattle area. And this visit would be one of only a few times on my journey I had an appointment. I need to make a ferry in Alaska to take me from Haines to Prince Rupert in British Columbia. But today’s appointment is with the oldest […]

Paradise To Sunrise on Mt. Rainier

I sit down at a picnic bench of massive cedar with my sandwich, chips and Arnie Palmer. The people […]

Mt. Ranier Camping

After doing a load of long overdue laundry in Ashford and stocking up on a few items for dinner at Suver’s General Store in Ashford, I made my way to Cougar Creek Campground in Mount Rainier National Park. To be sure, I had no idea Mount Rainier was […]

The Not So Secret Handshake

The Not So Secret Handshake There are no dues, no terms and conditions, no regular or formal meetings but when you ride a motorcycle you join a club, a fraternal organization of men, women, boys and girls who share only one common activity – they ride a motorcycle. Don’t get me wrong. ONe doesn’t have […]

I Feel The Earth Move Under My Feet

Since climbing the most active in Indonesia’s “Ring of Fire” many years ago I’ve been fascinated with volcanoes. And since leaving Northern California over a week ago I’ve been hot on the trail of the Cascade Mountain range. Stretching from British Columbia (meager Mountain) to Northern California (Lassen Peak), The Cascades roughly parallel the Pacific […]
