Well here I am back at It’s been over a year since my last post. I’m betting some folks may have a few questions so let me get a few questions as well as a few answers out of the way.

Where have you been? Oh my, that is a big question. Well….Since the last post here in late 2012, I have started a new webstore and shut it down. I got a new job as did my wife.  I am a proud dad and my kids are growing up fast. I go to A LOT of soccer. I don’t ride enough.  I’ve traveled to near and far away places. I stood up in front of people for the first time to present about photography at the Adventure Monkey photo tour. I’ve taken a lot of pictures. I’ve learned a lot.  Yep, life! That is what I have been up too.  I will sum it up in the following photo.


I’ve been seeing just what this big old world is all about

Why now? Why am I starting again? Well….This one is a bit tougher to answer. I really miss it for one and that is probably the biggest one. If you read through the past year you can see I had quite a few changes in 2013, maybe too many to handle all at the same time. I need the writing, sharing and interaction to help me process. I also need it for inspiration and to meet people. I miss that. I also sometimes need to look back to see just what I’ve done and where I’ve been. It helps me an d at the same time it drives me.  I’ll sum it all up in the following picture.

Riding, taking pictures, writing and sharing makes me happy

What’s the plan here? I just think it is time to start getting back to the things that are important to me. It’s time. I’ve tried some other stuff. I have messed around with other photo sites like tumblr and social platforms like Flickr. I find them all to be boring and have shortcomings because they lack the sharing aspect of blogging and all but eliminate deeper and more meaningful posts.  I do plan to curate the material here a bit better than in the past. If I don’t have anything to share, write or post, I don’t plan to force myself. It will come and go with a bit of ebb and flow.  I can tell you though it will be about the things I love; People, bikes, photography and travel.

Hope to see you back here and out there soon
