Dennis and Vina are hosting the not necessarily annual Party In The Saloon (PITS) out in California… and that’s all the justification required for me and a few friends to ride across the country to attend. Continue reading 2019 PITS Cruise – Day 1

Yellowstone Cruise: Day 1

My iPad browser crashed in the middle of composing this post and ate at least 30 minutes of work. Tomorrow’s a big day so I’m not going to type it all in again. Consequently, highlights only for today.

2019 Haystack Conference and Fuel Pump Saga – Day 1

This year I rode the Nightowl down to the 2019 Haystack conference on search relevance. I rode the entire way there with a dead fuel pump. Strange, but true.

2017 MAMMARY Run

Having returned home, momentarily, after my trip out to California, I  now had to pack right up and continue east to the next party. In spite of the name, this party does not involve gratuitous exposure of the upper female naughty bits (so much the pity). Continue reading 2017 MAMMARY Run

Home in a Hurry, A Wet Part 4
