This time of year in the United States, we are bombarded with offers of sales on everything imaginable, including boots. Breathless boot ads with offers of 10%, 20%, 25%, or even more fill my email in-box. I often receive multiple emails from the same vendor during this four-day period.
So what did I buy? Another pair of boots?
Two years ago today, my buddy “S” and I began our crazy-awesome adventure in Utah. We had planned this huge motorcycle trip for months, and two years ago today, we met at the Chicago O’Hare Airport for our flight to Salt Lake City.
After we arrived (two hours late), we first went into the city…
One idea provided to me by my buddy “S” with whom I went on a crazy-awesome motorcycle adventure in Utah on ideas to blog about was “boot improvisation.” He suggested that I describe what boots we selected for this trip, and why these boots were different from what one may expect to wear when riding a Harley.
Great idea! Thanks, “S”! So here goes… what did we improvise (that is, choose to make available) for boots on this trip, and why? More after the jump…
One year ago, my buddy “S” and I began a Crazy Awesome Adventure — a 1,250-mile motorcycle ride through the “Mighty Five” National Parks of southern Utah.
For the next few posts, I will share memories of that adventure, as well as plans for a reprise.
It is hard for me to believe, but just four months ago, my buddy “S” and I were on the most crazy-awesome motorcycle adventure in Utah. Friday, 28 July, was when we rode 321 miles through the Bears Ears National Monument and the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument land areas of Utah. S recently sent me a shirt (shown here) as a thank-you for our fun times. (Thank YOU, S, for going with me and your safe and sane riding!)
Back to the ride 28 July segment of our ride… we rode in a monsoon for half of it … but nonetheless, a highly…
While twin brother J was visiting family and I had some time while Spouse was napping this past weekend, I finally had time to create a gallery of some 376 still photos that I took (or were taken by “S” of me) on our “Crazy-Awesome Motorcycle Adventure” in Utah at the end of July.
Some people have asked, “what boots did you bring with you and wear on your recent motorcycle ride in Utah?
Good question. Readers won’t believe that…
I have produced one more video, this time much longer (7 minutes), while riding into Zion National Park via its eastern entrance road. (The video is viewable at the bottom of this post after the jump.)
This was yet another awesome geological experience to view on two wheels. What I enjoyed most about this park was…
My video production from my “helmetcam” (a GoPro Hero 5) continues. After visiting Canyonlands National Park on the morning of 27 July, we rode a short distance (distances in the huge state of Utah are relative), and rode into Arches National Park near Moab. I will describe what we did in the park, and video from our ride is down below. Read on!
This park is claimed to be…
I have returned home from my personal and business visit to Utah, and have had a little time to begin to process video from my crazy-awesome motorcycle adventure.
Canyonlands National Park is the first of the five national parks that we visited. Each national park we visited is different. This park…
