It all starts here in Agoura Hills, California. My wife, my best buddy for life, and wonderful kids, both young and not so young, all surround me. So what the heck am I thinking? Why or how can I think someday wanting to leave those that I love so dearly for days or maybe weeks of sweating on a bent up contraption touring California and who knows where else? Well my plan to take off on any sort of extended ride is still a long way off. So maybe I don’t have to think much. Too much thinking can be a curse and too little can be dangerous. I do know that I not only seek adventure but as a father I crave knowledge and personal experiences that I can pass on to my kids and others who care to listen.

I have given up the long (not the short) hikes into the backcountry of many beautiful places in California and the Southwest. Instead I’ll be cruising on my recumbent at an average of ten miles per hour on lesser roads and highways. I look forward to becoming more intimate with all the places that I've missed while speeding to a hiking destination. I look forward to experiencing life from a different prospective. In addition to taking short hikes on a wilderness trail to clear my head I will also be riding the paved streets of reality. I will enjoy all the bueaty that exists at the edge of the road as well as bemoan the havoc that we humans have caused upon our planet and thus upon ourself.
I am looking forward to sharing my discoveries, thoughts and diatribe with my family and friends through words and pictures.
