In Roads-#82

#82 In Roads-Servi-Car score     I stopped by the Sturgis Harley dealership to pick up the newest Thunder Press and struck up a conversation with the parts guy. It’s fun to talk to a biker. We crack a few jokes and chatter a bit before I ask if I can take his picture. We head to the parking lot ...

Chrystal Lynn, a.k.a. Cowgirl Astrologer

The 74th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally… why I believe this could be one of the greatest runs of all time… When most people think about astrology they think about their horoscopes in the back of a fashion magazine, but when you look into astrology as a map or a tool to see how specific energies are surrounding you, then you can ...

#81 In Roads-Bit   Cutting through the alley to avoid the crowds I stop for a photo and a friendly gal asks how my day is going. The petite little blonde with numerous tatts, including one on her neck that reads “NO H8,” looks tired and seems kind of disoriented. “I just rode over 650-miles. I come in to work ...

#80 In Roads-Nebraska boys   A couple of guys come roaring into the gas station and hop off their bikes with big smiles. The guy on the 2014 Slim looks my bug-splattered bike up and down and points at the Arizona plates. “Well, you’ve certainly done your distance, haven’t you?” His buddy is chatting up Shannon from across the lot ...

#78 In Roads-Gypsy Glen   Getting gas in a dinky backwater South Dakota town, I ask a guy dumping the station garbage how much further Sturgis is. He gives detailed directions before looking skyward and pointing out what great day it is for a ride. I’ve just spent the last three hours drifting through gentle twists and fantastic, mesmerizing scenery ...

#78 In Roads-Country charm   I walk into a place in Cody, Wyoming and lo and behold, bellied up to the bar are friends from California. As amazing as that is to me, even more interesting is the fact that they were just telling a cowboy about my project. Next thing I know I’m shaking hands with the local guy ...

#77 In Roads-Goodwill Ambassador   Cruising the mountains has been blissful. Not talking to people has made it all the better. Waterfalls, snow capped peaks and sparkling lakes have consumed me. There has, however, been no cell service, no Internet and, consequentially, missed deadlines. Knowing I have to meet someone has become an issue. It’s eating at me. Added to ...

In Roads #76

#76 In Roads-Traveling teens   The skies have opened up and dumped buckets as I trudge down to get dinner from the fire pit of the KOA camp office. Even though I’m in full rain gear, I’m soaked to the bone before I’m half way there. I place the order with high school kid with the accent and she repeats ...

In Road #75

#75 In Roads-Blood brother   I’ve stopped by a landmark institution to check out the cool artwork and vintage bikes. Ok, reality is I’m in a bar with old bikes suspended from the ceiling and neon signs from old gas stations. The guy at the table next to me has a beard down to his chest and I figure he’s ...
