Many Adventures Written Down

As I add to my WordPress site and pile on the articles I’ve written in my Writing page, I’ve come to realize just how many motorcycle adventures I’ve been on in the past three years.  I’ve since told myself I have to go on an adventure that I DON’T write about. But I can’t help it. And I’ve got two dozen or more magazine articles to show for it. I’ve only got up to adding the articles published until the end of 2014, but I’ll continue.

The above picture was taken in Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park not long after arrival in June 2013. I seem to remember having set up my tent at this point and my friend Matt and I were about to take a hike into the beautiful Carmanah Valley to see the groves of ancient Sikta spruce and hemlock. It wasn’t an easy place to get to. Ironically, the only way to get to a place protected from logging companies, was to ride bumpy gravel logging roads maintained by those logging companies. The southwest part of Vancouver Island really is a magical place. I suppose it’s a good thing that it’s not easy to get to, otherwise everyone would be going there!

Check out my Writing page if you haven’t already. I’ll be sure to add 2015 and 2016 articles soon…
