Welcome to my new blog! I have finally been convinced to move from print media to the web. This being my first entry don't expect much. Let's just say I have been touring Europe and the North American continent for years and plan on doing much more in the future. I spend most weekends riding in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I am a teacher, so I have my summers free. Last year I toured Ontario and Quebec as well as several states in the U. S. I will post a report on that trip soon and try to keep you up to date on the plans for my Alaska trip planned for June and July of this year. Stay tuned (even if this entry bored you to tears!).
