The FJ at Tioga PassHere's a journal I wrote while I was on a cross country motorcycle trip in 2001. Well, cross country, more like cross-state. Each chapter is one day during the trip and recounts, pretty much, what I did, where I went and who I met. It's amazing that I didn't have a camera with me. I'm still kicking myself.

Me and the 1979 Yamaha 1100Some of the photos that accompany this story are from the previous year when I took the same motorcycle (but didn't keep a journal), a Yamaha FJ1200 up to Oregon to visit some friends and find some new places I had never been before. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing and living them.

In The RoadThere are several links to other web sites within these pages. They open in their own windows, so just close those windows and you'll be back right where you left off!

Have a Ball!
