Alaska 2013 – The Movie

I confess I didn’t think much about doing a video of the road trip to Alaska, mainly because I knew it would come down to this dilemma: how to condense 68 days of riding through 26 states and 4 Canadian provinces into a short movie? So most days I just set my GoPro and turned...

Alaska 2013 – The Journey is Completed

It’s done! After exactly 19,000 miles (such a coincidence, not a mile more or a mile less…), 68 days, 26 states, 4 Canadian provinces and a lot of espressos along the way, I parked the motorcycle in my garage a little before 7pm on Thursday, and finally reunited with my family. It was a very...

Alaska 2013 – One Last Road (Going Home)

After I left Colorado four days ago, I  tried to cover a lot of miles each day and stopped a lot less. I almost didn’t photograph, or at least not nearly as much as in the past weeks, since I had to cover an average of 500 miles every day, under very hot weather. I...

Alaska 2013 – Ninth Week (Colorado)

When I first started planning the route for this trip, I imagined I would spend a couple of days in Utah on my way back, and then pretty much take a straight line from there to home. I didn’t consider spending anytime in Colorado, except for a single stop for the night somewhere in the...

  • Edward N Patricia MarinALMOST HOME MY FRIEND , HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON.ReplyCancel

  • Lesley JealHello Ricardo! Geoff & I (Lesley) are very pleased that you are back in the arms of your Loved Ones! We met at The Buffalo Sage Bed & Breakfast, Boulder, Utah. A very nice place to put a weary head or two! David & Alice were very welcoming & friendly. It was Great to meet you! Your journey sounded very daunting & exciting all at the same time as you were telling us where you had visited, & where you were about to go! Yes, certainly a trip of a Lifetime….. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to catch up & follow you on your journey, it was a touch of reality when we got back home to Manchester in Michigan. Oh, by the way, we got caught up in the bike race the next day after being told! Lol! We ended up coming back about 77 miles, passing The Buffalo Sage B & B, heading for the 89 & joining the 70. That was a long day! We did get to see Bryce, Zion Canyon & The Arches, totally speechless. Such dramatic & rugged scenery, takes your breath away! Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you Ricardo for your comments on some of the photos that I showed you & your views in general! You gave me a push as I am not the most confident of people! Geoff says that I have a gift/talent but haven’t been convinced. I have today posted entries for Birds & Blooms, three categories, Best in Birds, Butterflies & Flowers. If you have an email address, I would like to send them to you…. see what your thoughts might be? Would also like to keep in touch with you to hear of your future journeys & update on your book. Good Luck! Geoff & Lesley (Jeal).ReplyCancel

Alaska 2013 – Eighth Week (Utah)

Crossing the Loneliest Road in America was really nice, but after two days in Nevada, I was ready to keep on going. I left Ely on a sunny Monday morning, stopping at the Great Basin, one of the ten least visited National Parks, and was impressed with what I saw. The rangers at the park told...

Alaska 2013 – Seventh Week (Northern California, Yosemite and The Loneliest Road)

Alaska 2013 – Sixth Week (British Columbia, Seattle and Oregon Coast)

The sixth week on the journey marked the moment when I really felt I was on my way back home. Not an easy realization at all, after having experienced so much in Alaska and the Yukon these past weeks. As I kept riding south, my mind was racing with flashes of the many different places...
