The Ride

Lean into the curve                                   as the road clings to                                                                       the rubber beneath.                                 Read more…

Oct 7, 2021 Road Trip

Barrman mounted his Honda ST 1300 and looked into the bright sky. How long will you stay with me? He asked the sunshine. The glorious yellow glow lit the sky and warmed his heart.  But only seconds into the ride the Fifty-one-year-old kid stopped and turned back. The chill in the autumn air gave him pause. This ride called for long underwear. It was early October and the glorious rays of a fall day beamed down. In the shadows, the Read more…

October 6, 2021 Ironic

Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp disappeared from our lives on Monday. The world was free of its greatest mass addiction for most of the day.  Imagine if it had never come back? Was it a mass hack that took everyone’s online life? Stole the virtual world we live in… And lost it? Lost. I felt the innate feeling inside when I logged into Facebook. Where did it go? My precious. It felt like a scene from Lord of The Rings. I Read more…

Oct 4, 2021

The warm sun glowed down on the Okanagan Valley. Summer was an echoing memory as the fall season has settled in. So when the amazing sunhine beamed down upon my back I decided it was a good day to get out on the lake. My fishing gear was ready and calling me. It was time I listened.

October 02, 2021 Expedition Canada

When the call came to work the Expedition Canada adventure race I’d never heard of the AR world series. AR stands for Adventure Race, and they really mean adventure… I had seen events like this on TV before but never knew much about them. The opportunity to go on the water and be involved in a race like that was very cool. The race in the Okanagan was called BC Wild. It was originally scheduled for June 2020 and then Read more…

September 29, 2021, Expedition and Adventure On The Water.

Captain Brad stood at the helm of the 24-foot pontoon boat. Waves crashed into the port side of his vessel and the cascading spray coated his face with a cold stream of water. He had every faith in the boat staying on top of the four-foot swells rocking his world. The doubt in the back of his mind was getting it on the trailer.  His day started out well enough when he launched the Triple Or Nothing. He was confident Read more…

September 25-27 Vancouver Island

We stood and stared at the calm waters of the Georgia Straight. It was a beautiful autumn day, a great day for a boat ride. It looked to be a good weekend for a trip to Vancouver Island and the scenic city of Victoria. My honey and I made it for the 3 pm ferry from Tsawwassen to Schwartz Bay. We enjoyed the connection with the water and each other. My wife and I were trying to breathe for a Read more…
