Mini-Me is coming to Puerto Rico

Due to very short deadlines to obtain the Airline tickets in time, I had to make a quick decision on whom to bring with me on my trip to Puerto Rico in January. After a week of contemplation, my 19 year-old brother Tom (AKA Mini-Me) is the lucky (or unlucky depending on how you view ...

Going to Puerto Rico!

Well, in January I will be experiencing my first trip to the Caribbean. I won a performance award at work that awards me a free trip for 2 to Puerto Rico. I’m very excited about this, the resort looks beautiful! I’m looking forward to the golfing, scuba diving, the blue water, and the smooth sand. ...

Final Days: 8 and 9

It took me quite a long time to get out of Fredericton. It was raining, and my cheap Wal Mart rain gear had gotten ripped and shredded after my first encounter with rain in New Brunswick on the way the to the East Coast. So I rode to the local Fredericton Wal Mart and purchased ...

Day 7 – Friday

I arrived in Fredericton New Brunswick around 7PM Friday evening. I had quite an interesting ride there. It took me about 7 hours to get to Fredericton from Halifax, which is normally a 4 hour drive. While I was riding, it struck me that I haven’t checked my oil level. I thought it would be ...

Days 6 and 7

Days 4 and 5

After arriving in Charlottetown, I spent around 3 hours looking for a cheap hotel since the only hostel in Charlottetown was apparently closed down a couple months ago. I searched like crazy, I even went to the University of PEI to see if they had any rooms.. No luck, and every decent hotel/motel/inn in Charlottetown ...

Days 2 & 3

I finally arrived in Charlottetown PEI after 2 full days of riding. I left Montreal around 12:00PM yesterday, I was planning to get to Fredericton by 9:00 or so, but after around just over 500Kms of riding, it was pouring down pretty hard, it was dark out, and I seriously felt like my life was ...

Day 1

I arrived safe and sound in Montreal around 8:30PM yesterday evening, after 9 hours of riding my motorcycle. The motorcycle ride was quite different than what I had expected. My back and buttocks were very sore when I first started out. After around 350Kms, I ended up adjusting my backpack, and that made an astounding ...
