Whenever I go away for a while, there is one thing I really look forward to upon arriving home. The weather. On my last day riding home from Sturgis I had to get up early so I could leave Las Vegas before it got too warm. The reason for this is that no matter how hot Las Vegas is, Baker and Barstow are probably going to be hotter. At least in the summer. It is exactly the opposite in the winter. Even though I left at 8:20 AM, the coolest temperatures I dealt with were in the upper 90’s, and …
Photos From Day One of the Ride To Sturgis [adrotate group=”6″] Torrance, CA to Grand Junction, CO 2010 was the 70th Annual Black Hills Rally & Races in Sturgis, S.D. The last time I went was in 2006 and I swore I would never return due to the amount of people that were now attending. If they all came on motorcycles instead of dragging them along on trailers it would not be so bad, but Sturgis just was not built for one million people. Since I got a new bike, and the price of gas went up, I figured it …
Picture a Day, Project 365 [adrotate group=”6″] June 2010 Photos Is it just me, or is this year flying by? June had Tanya come out for a visit as we had a trade show in Las Vegas. We took advantage of the situation and rode my new Limited out there. It was a very hot ride. The rest of the month was pretty much kept local. July is my favorite month of the year, due entirely to the 4th of July and my fondness for things that go boom in the night. I am looking forward to it. [adrotate group=”1″]
Road Trip, Day One Photos [adrotate group=”6″] Los Angeles To Las Vegas The best road trips are those that have no destination, and that is what we are doing. Since we have no time schedule, it did not really matter that we got a late start. So, we spent the first night in Vegas. [adrotate group=”1″]
This is going to be fun. I have my girl, I have my dog, and I have my laptop. Oh yeah, I have my camera too. Okay, three of them. I plan on taking some amazing photos by the time I get home. Day 102 of my daily photo log, Project 365.

Death Valley Days [adrotate group=”6″] Adventure in the Mojave Desert As we headed home from Las Vegas we decided to take a detour to one of California’s most overlooked destinations, Death Valley. Death Valley offers some amazing scenery along with its abundance of minerals. Traveling to Death Valley reminds me of what it might be like to visit another planet. [adrotate group=”1″]
Valley of Fire [adrotate group=”6″] Amazing landscape in the Nevada desert My girlfriend and I were scheduled to be in Vegas longer than we needed to be so we decided to spend a day in the Mojave Desert, taking pictures. We have a good friend that is a professional photographer and he agreed to show us some of his favorite spots in the Valley of Fire State Park. He also gave us some photography tips that we put to good use, immediately. This place has some amazing rock formations and landscapes that were enhanced by the winter skies. There was …
I have not been able to take one of these for a month, so there may be a few over the next two weeks. We drove to Vegas yesterday, and hit The Palms today. Made a few bucks and had a good time doing it. Day 11 of 365.
