Sturgis Bike Week 2010

Sturgis Bike Week 2010

Yes, the title is correct…2010. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast or know one or live in South Dakota or anywhere in the central midwest or just keep track of random events, you might know that last week (August 8-13) was the Black Hills Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota. I didn’t make it out this year (obvio). Scott and my in-laws attempted to head out there but turned around at 3 am after encountering mechanical […]

Arkansas from the Back of a Bike

Arkansas from the Back of a Bike

Remember how a month and a half ago Scott and I took our first long-distance motorcycle trip?  And I’m just now getting around to blogging about it?  We’re starting to talk more seriously about our upcoming trip to Sturgis, so in the spirit of motorcycle riding, here’s our trip to Arkansas: Bright and early Friday morning we hopped on the bike (don’t let the photo fool you, we were wearing helmets the whole time), and […]

Since I’ll have hours and hours of roadtime without any communication with Scott, I thought I’d ask you guys for your audiobook recommendations! Gimme Your Audiobook Recommendations! I’d preferably like to listen to something I haven’t […]

South Dakota/Yellowstone August 2009

South Dakota/Yellowstone August 2009

ROAD TRIP AUGUST 2009South Dakota / Yellowstone, Wyoming Scott and I have been talking about going to Yellowstone for several months, but I always figured it would be one of those things that we talked about but never did–kind of like Europe (hint hint). I also knew that I wanted to go to Mount Rushmore and The Badlands, but all of those things are so far away and not really on the way to anything. […]

New England – October 2008

New England – October 2008

I’ve always wanted to take a trip to New England in the fall, mostly to see the foliage, but also because I have idealistic vision of that part of the country. Half of me would love to live there, but the other half knows that I couldn’t live in a small idyllic town (um, tried that in Coleman). So when Scott and my schedule aligned at the beginning of October, I jumped on the chance […]
