I love your 1980s routes through Kansas! Just one question, in your 1982 trip it says you went through Lerado, KS? Lerado is in Reno County and there's been nearly nothing there for 100 years.

Also would love to know where the August '03 pics were taken!

I found your page a few years ago and check it occasionally. I really enjoy seeing places I might not ever see otherwise. Thank you so much for making it available to everyone! My deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. May she rest in peace.

Stumbled upon your website and enjoyed it very much. As a motorcycle rider and native of Kansas, I could relate to some of your trips. Thanks for sharing.

I have just found your site and REALLY enjoy it.
I really like the combination of your many years of riding, and your exploration of almost every aspect of where you are traveling. You look for things that others may "overlook".
I'm a native of Kansas and like having the feeling of traveling with you to all the places you've been, all across the world.
I've bookmarked you.
I admire your sense of adventure and open-minded exploration!

Hello-I don't know HOW I found your site, but I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying going through your Nebraska and Kansas photos. My husband and I travel to Nebraska every year to see the migrations and I THOUGHT we knew just about every road. Well, you proved me wrong---and I'm GLAD....because now we have to go back yet again!!
Thanks again for such a great website!

Very much enjoy your postings. I am curious as to what your photography equipment that you are using. I am using a gopro 4, but by the time I get home from a trip, I forget where the locations are that I have taken pictures of. I don't travel international, but still have lots of traveling to do in the US.

Love the latest trip. Some of my most favorite roads are in the arid lands of New Mexico and west Texas. Large vistas and little traffic. I've enjoyed all of your trips.

I've appreciated your work for several years now, and at least vicariously get to Europe. I encourage you to build picturesque Wray, Colorado into an itinerary. Both that thriving Eastern Colorado town and the intriguing historical site south of town, Beecher Island Battle Ground, are worth a visit.

A long-time follower of your travels and a rider myself, I regularly follow your travels across the US and the World and always enjoy your unique talent for giving your readers the sense that they are personally sharing in your adventure and making interesting discoveries along the way as well. Also, since I am originally from that part of the world, I especially enjoy your frequent forays into Old Europe!
Thanks again.

My daughter and I take our vacation several times a year on motorcycles. We are planning a trip to states we haven't been too. Your information is helpful.
You are experiencing our great beautiful country. Thanks for your tips - and ride safe.

This morning I went to googling about the tiny town I grew up in, and came across your photos in the images, & led to your page... I am simply astounded and moved beyond words, more or less tears, to look at images, which to me are memories, that I do not have pictures of, but you took me there and these are a gift to me. I wish you knew how much your post means to me, as there truly aren't that many others who have been to Coats, Kansas to take those pics and would look crazy for me even suggesting it! Thankyou so very very much. - The girl who grew up next to the Methodist church in Coats Kansas

I have followed-and enjoyed- your photo ride reporting for many years, starting on the Wild Goose forum. It's time to say thank you.

Boy have you missed out riding in the Buckeye state of Ohio. Basically......NE/SE/East and Southern Ohio has some amazing roads. We also have the largest Amish and Mennonite population in the country, and there is allot of fantastic roads where they settled for sure. Extremely technical roads that are not marked well, and the roads are quite twisty and very challenging. Road and Track and Car and driver just love to test out cars in Ohio, sounds like you need to do some exploring. After that you can head to WV and hit without question some of the best motorcycle roads in the country "trust me".

The story of the Garmin Spot is classic. Amazing that it still worked after it bounced off the motorcycle onto the road and into the grasslands...

Thank you for your list of roads. I knew I could take your "opinion" seriously when you mentioned the ride on Hwy 2/Highline in Mt and appreciate the beauty there. My husband and I lived and explored area around Glacier Park/northern Mt and now live in eastern WA. Our rides have gone from Spokane to Fairbanks and down to San D. We haven't done much riding east of ND but am hoping to expand our travels in the mid/east US in future years. I will be using your guide as a helpful resource in our planned trip to Ohio next year. Thanks again for documenting your rides and keep the rubber side down!

Thank you for the wonderful photos. I lived in Greenwood County Kansas when growing up. Madison / Lamont, Toronto, and even a short time near Quincy. Traveled the road from Toronto to Madison via Quincy & Virgil many times. Good to see updates on state of the County from you. I shared your site with friends on FaceBook's "Remember When in Madison" group as some had moved away and not been back in many years. Everyone liked it -- thanks again.

Wow, what an excellent travel log of your life! Very well done. You are a well seasoned traveller.

I have the exact same tent as you. I got mine in the late 1970's. I agree that for the size, weight, and shelter effectiveness it is still an excellent tent by today's standards. Somewhere along the way, I replaced the plastic poles with some very nice aluminum poles. I hiked the Continental Divide with it and used it on more than a hundred other tripss. I still have it to this day.

I can't find any identifying markings on it, so I don't know the brand.
