Those of a certain age will remember Rin Tin Tin the original K9 of the species. He could rescue anyone from anywhere. The TAT trail from Moab to Castle Deal comes with.

It can be difficult to get your head around it, the enormity of the land mass. Not something we are accustomed to. The lady in the dollar general store tells us she takes the kids, the grandparents and the dog to go shopping … a weekend trip. You look at the map; sure it’s only […]

In American terms Death Valley (!) is not too far from here … a little south. Never been there but can now understand the name. It’s roasting Hot again too hot, dangerous to ride between 1 and 4 pm at least. Taken the advice, parked up. We pulled in after 229 miles yesterday with what […]

She coughs and splutters a bit just to let me know we are at 13000 feet plus. Winding up and down the alpine valleys joined by the never ending Rock strewn hairpin bends…. its slow, technical riding.

Sometimes there are surprises and then more surprises. Prohibition ended a long time ago, just no one told the good people of Arkansas. We have a cold beer every evening when we stop. But Arkansas is a dry county. No beer, no . No one told us that. It’s 2017; the USA is not the […]

The bootleggers ( as seen on TV) give the state police the run around and continue to produce the illicit liquor under their noses.
