Jul 2, 2014 - Riding north

Second day of riding with the Wild Hogs After the rains moved through on Tuesday, we awoke Wednesday to clear skies and cooler, drier air - perfect for riding. This morning we left out around 9:00 and headed north through farm country. It was a beautiful ride - lots of pastureland, horses, rolling hills, beautiful houses.....sweet. We met up with friends of Pat and Lorenzo's along the way - Saverio and Diana Cirone joined the Hogs and now we had a gang of 6 bikes! Our first destination was the Caledon Family Restaurant for breakfast. Upon...

Feb 13, 2006 - The day with two sunsets

All right, here we go, the final entries you've been promised. We should probably start with a little wrap-up of our last couple of days on the road. Our trip home consisted of three flights: Sydney to Honolulu to Vancouver to Toronto. All of them were with Air Canada, so it should have been a long but simple itinerary. But fate seemed to be conspiring against us from the word go. The alarm went off in Sydney at exactly the time we'd set - too bad, since we'd neglected to account for the hour time change from Cairns. So we got ourselves in...
