On the road north…

July 7, 2011

In preparation for our trip to Alaska next year we’re taking a vacation / scouting trip up north. We’ve loaded up the bikes with our usual assortment of camping gear and we’ll be riding up the California coast, cutting over for a short stop in Bend, Oregon, continuing to Portland to visit some friends and […]

Probably out of Internet Contact for a While

January 14, 2010

We could be totally wrong, but there’s a good chance that we won’t have much internet time over the next 4 weeks (Jan 14 – Feb 14). We’ll be traveling through New Zealand, where we’re planning on camping as much as possible and don’t expect many wireless campsites. From there we’ll be heading to Tasmania to […]

I love information design. I spend a lot of time sorting our photos on Flickr into various categories and sub-categories, creating Google Maps of routes we’ve ridden and cities we’ve visited, and religiously tracking information like where we stay each night and how many miles we travel per day. When we made the decision to […]

We’re Still Here

September 21, 2009

…and we’re fudging the numbers! We just completed 7 days walking around the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland. We expected to have more internet service along the way, but we didn’t… to the tune of none. We were also surprised to find that 3 of the towns we stayed in didn’t have shops; and we don’t […]

We owe people, big time.

August 5, 2009

Today’s the day. It’s 8:15 in the morning and we’re less than an hour away from firing up the bikes and starting the first leg of the journey – the 3 day ride to the Bonneville Salt Flats. In the 6 months that we’ve been preparing for this trip, we have received and almost limitless […]

Visas, CPR and Guns

July 7, 2009

There have been a number of trip preparations going on as we now enter t-minus 30 days until we leave – however most of them have not been particularly photogenic, so our updates have been minimal, but the header basically says it all. We have mailed our passports off (always frightening) to get our first […]
