My passions are three-fold - bicycle touring, hiking and traveling which has consumed me for most of my adult life. I must admit, gypsy blood runs hotly through my veins.
These pursuits are not mutually exclusive as I often combine all three activities in a single trip. For me, seeing the world from a bike saddle or by boots is the ideal form of traveling in that it allows me to enjoy my fourth passion - eating. These vigorous activities keeps my waist-line in check.
Up to 2008, RVing was also a big part of my life until my dear wife of 40 years, Patricia, passed away. I have temporarily parked the RV but I have not lost my lust for travel. Having lost my loyal and beloved side-kick, these days, I travel with a great group of buddies or solo.
I started this blog in 2008 and most of the entries chronicle my bike trips, hikes, and travels.
