So today at least take an extra long lunch and enjoy the freedom of the road.

Looks like it just caught fire out of the blues for no reason.
It seems that when the conditions are just right they all burst at the same time needless to say just about everyone is effected one way or another coughing sneezing watery eyes or all of the above .
No meds seem to help much; basically you just suffer thru it and hope that the end of the mountain cedar season passes…Continue

The days are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter.
That’s the way I like it as the days get longer that means more sunshine and more time to ride .

Nothing like riding all day stopping for a swim somewhere in the many swimming holes around the Hill Country jump on the bike ride and dry off Blow dry in 5…Continue

I am the author of "Riding on Empty" of which took over 8 years to write due to being dyslexic. I felt if I could help just one person deal with the loss of a loved one then it would all be worthwhile. So far I have successfully helped many people better deal with their loss. Riding on Empty will make you cry, laugh and most of all cherish each and every day as though it were your last.…Continue
