Taos, NM – Enchanted Circle Drive

The Enchanted Circle Drive is an 83 mile circular route up through the Carson National Forest, north and east of Taos. The route takes you around Wheeler Peak, the highest point in the state at 13,161′ feet, up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. At the visitor centre, we had been told the better way to drive it […]

Burning Man – It’s Official Life Profit Wednesday

Today is Official Life Profit Day – “Today’s the day to do something you’ve never done before. Then get in the habit of breaking routine  the rest of the year. Cheers to a memorable life!” I’m totally on board with this! The thing that kills my life is when I get into too much of […]

Reno is Burning Man central

I’d read that it was a good idea to buy everything you need well before you hit Reno since 70,000 people descending on the town at once can decimate the stock they have there. That was obviously advice from a few years back. Turns out Reno is more than ready for all the heathens and […]

Bypassed the Burner’s campground – Eugene, OR to Yreka, CA

The Valley Center Mall in Eugene, OR is a great place to stop and boondock. They allow RVs to stay up to 48 hours in the very back lot, which is right beside the walking/bike paths alongside the river and delta. We took the dogs for a hike and saw all sorts of wildlife. Nutrias, otters, […]

Golden, BC – Kicking Horse Country

I’ve never stopped in Golden before, but I should have. It’s a cute little town between the Rocky Mountains and Columbia Mountain ranges with access to six national parks: Banff, Glacier, Jasper, Kootenay, Mount Revelstoke and Yoho. Two rivers meet at the town, Kicking Horse River, famous for whitewater rafting, and the Columbia River, which meanders through […]

Osoyoos and Oliver, BC

It’s a rite of passage for a child growing up in Vancouver to make the pilgrimage to the Okanagan each summer. My very first memory as a child is of being in the camp-ground at the very east end of the beach, and looking out over the corn fields on the reservation across the way. […]

Cycling the Pacific Coast

As reported by Bikeportland.org there are fix it stations, bike racks, covered shelters, and food storage now going into the hiker/biker sites in Oregon State Parks. Reading this article brought back so many wonderful memories of when we cycled down the west coast. One of the best things about cycling the coast is meeting up […]

Cycling San Francisco

 We found a place in San Francisco that could look at our air conditioning,  so we headed off early, leaving the trailer,  and taking the bikes. The highway after the Golden Gate bridge is under heavy construction and very tight. We soon turned off to our road and of course it was one of the […]

Cycling: Whidbey, Fidalgo and San Juan Islands, WA

I joined a few Meetup groups from Seattle since they tend to do some thing up near here and I’m also interested in what they are doing down there. One of them doesn’t have a lot of events but when they do they are at least a weekend or longer, typically cycling, but also kayaking […]

Cycling: Silverton, OR – Petal Pedal Ride

For this weekend, we had to make a choice between going to George, WA for the Rock n Ride, or Silverton, OR, for the Petal Pedal. Both would require a hotel and were towns we’d not been to before, and both were close to wine country. Silverton was about 1.5hrs further, but it was all […]
