Devil's Lake, WI

Loaded the camera bag and took the bike out for a test run.  Still getting a feel for what I want to share on camera without taking away from enjoying the experience in the moment (it feels sort of awkward talking on camera).  So here’s my first video testing the bike/gopro/drone (many improvements to be made!), uploaded from a Cracker Barrel parking lot in Boulder, CO. 

General update, I’ve been covering a lot of miles this week and shooting/filming a lot but not editing much.  Looking forward to slowing down once we get to Idaho.  Rio is well.   Only crashed the bike once this week, more on that later!

First Trip of the Year!

First trip of many in 2017!  So much has happened since my last post, it was a mad dash to have everything ready in time for our trip home to Ohio.  Of course I’m excited to share some pictures but more than anything I just wanted to say thank you.  Here’s to an exciting new year!


Creating something from nothing is no small feat!  Which is exactly what Garrett Finney has done over at Taxa Outdoors (www.taxaoutdoors.com) creating an incredible line of campers.  Seriously, they have some really unique campers that are towable with just about any vehicle.  Much of the inspiration for this build borrows from the Tiger Moth design which is just the right size for a guy, girl, and a dog.  The slightly larger model, The Cricket, flexes into the family camper role and they even have an overlanding towable with The Woolly Bear.  

A special thanks to Tyrone for giving me a place to build (remember when I rolled in with that rust-bucket off craigslist?) and engineering assistance.  To my friends and family who have been reading along, thank you for your encouragement and positive words.  From here, this is only the beginning!
