The road to Albuquerque

After the big night rockin Fort Carson I was up ultra early (just after 4:00 am) to get off to a flier.  I wanted to get my washing dry and make sure I was on the road before 7 am.  I had to get to Albuquerque which was slightly under 600 klms away.  I got […]

Country Retreat

I checked now and have 60 people following my blog – the Lodi Police facebook mention gained a few Locals so welcome to them. Here is me thinking I would be lucky if my family followed me! This is the site for the Lodi Police Department facebook page. Soon Fred will have a personal media […]

Radio Active

After being ripped off for the cost of a Motel Room I thought the saving grace was at least I would have a decent breakfast. Wrong Again. I end up having toast and jam because the cooked food was atrocious. There was something that looked like porridge but smelt like a dead cat. I also […]

Wind, rain, hail

Reluctantly I pack up my gear to leave Lander. The town was much better than expected and had been a great pit stop. I went down to the café where I had lunch the day before and wanted to have the usual bacon eggs – no can do but they could do a bacon/egg burrito. […]

On the grass

8:00pm on Tuesday and I am in Idaho Falls. Well it has been an interesting couple of days. I left Laramie reasonable early and got out on the road. Here is what I saw; I am on the 130 to Saratoga (about 120klms) with the intention to get to Jeffrey City. That is the half […]
