Now Listen Up!

Private Pyle, I’m gonna give you three seconds; exactly three-fucking-seconds, to wipe that stupid looking grin off your face or I will gouge out your eyeballs and skull fuck you!


OK, on a more serious note

I started this site as a way to document and share the awesome information and experiences of cycling and bikepacking, even tossing in a few tidbits to help plan and execute your own adventures.

If you like Cycling, Bikepacking, and the technology we use that helps us get out and explore the world, you should feel right at home here.

All of my posts, links, and assorted pictures are really geared to help you get the most out of trip planning and execution.

I’m a lifelong backpacker that was bitten by the 2 wheel monster several years ago. Since that time, it has literally been a non stop ride I have no intention of stopping.

Some of my 2wheel adventures are

  • 3 time one day rider of the STP (Seattle to Portland) bike ride
  • 2 time finisher of the High Pass Challenge (A ride up Mt. St. Helens)
  • Completed a slew of Century rides in Washington and Oregon
  • Cycle toured from Indiana to Virginia
  • Still going strong at the young age of 55!

I am not only into cycling, but I love to restore and tinker on 67-72 Chevy trucks..  I am also somewhat of a geek when it comes to technology, can’t seem to get enough play time with gadgets and gizmo’s..


My stable currently has 3 bikes,

Road bike – 2015 Wilier Zero 7 Tri-Color

Adventure bike – 2016 Surly Ogre Tarnish Grey

Rain/backup bike – 2003 Fuji Team Issue


As it relates to Hot Rods, I have had one or more rides pretty much all my life. It began way back with a 65 Impala SS and the shaggy haircut to go along with the times…

That progressed on and into one of my most favorite rides of all time.

1970 SS Camaro!

From this bad boy, I had a variety of cars and trucks including a 47 ford pickup, and a 72 long bed!

As you can see from the pages on the site here, I still have the bug and it has spread everywhere!!





“If you ladies leave my island, if you survive recruit training, you will be a weapon. You will be a minister of death praying for war. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair.”
