Humpty bumps

Mountain gravel.

Being on the road can be filled with fun but it also can be filled with problems. Broken motorcycles == broken hearts if you know what i mean. ;)

During the first leg of my journey, I was called to the dirt. I had spent plenty of time poking around on the pavement. I was seeing awesome places like Crater Lake, beautiful mountain passes and quaint (but really warm) valleys. Luckily, in Oregon, dirt and gravel are as common as ever so it was easy to find a road to spend some time on.

Don't go chasing waterfalls

Jumping into Crater Lake!

Sometimes you really love a place enough to stay a little bit longer than you expected. Crater Lake on Day 7 happened to be that place.

A little social engineering will do

So i'm still trying to figure out what format works best for these posts. I have limited time to write, edit and also adventure. Most posts I will at least include the following:

  1. Lessons learned
  2. Useful tips and tricks
  3. Reviews and/or links to places and resources

Losing my way and tasty redemption

These fire roads are nice!

In my quest to find something new and different to do, I find myself wine tasting in the valleys of Oregon and talking about the properties of the abundant backcountry wood. On top of it all it was the first day I found myself off the intended road I wanted to take and into some place even cooler.

Mountain passes and jerky

Only U can do it.

My day started at Clam Beach where I bid adieu to barking dogs and loud families. I wanted to get away from the coast which was cloudy and cold for most of my trip. I pulled out the map and it looked like a route running through the Cascades would be my best bet.

Don't eat the clams at Clam Beach

One of my favorites, Avenue of the Giants!

I head north after briefly enjoying Westport. The next destination? The Avenue of the Giants and Eureka. I had already been to this area around 3.5-4 years ago when I rode with a buddy from San Francisco.

Unintentional night riding

Fort Brag you've saved my opinion of northwestern California coast. I almost gave up on it completely until I rolled through your pearly gates*.

Busy being busy

Picture of Bodega Bay through the bush.

I wanted to make a point to discuss something that I think plagues lots of people: the act of being busy but without purpose. For me, my worry was (and still is) to continue on without soaking in the place I may be staying in.

I am now homeless

Making a point.

Making a point. I just spent the past 2 weeks selling my life away. Starting tomorrow morning I will be living with only the things that will fit in my motorcycle luggage. My first day free from worldly things has already proved to be interesting...
