... farm in Canada and takes folks like us on excursions to Iceland all the time. Thanks again, Arnold, for teaching me how to tolt. I thank you from the bottom of my, uh, bottom? That’s the part tolting saved!

Lee, Arnold’s son, what can I say? Great guy to have around. He saved our backs moving our stuff around and corralling us when we needed to be together. Had a lot of fun getting to know him. Lee doesn’t ride as much as Arnold but ...

My older son still insists the purchase of this big bike was a mid-life crisis kind of thing but I think he is glad I did it for myself.  I explained to him that it isn't about mid-life crisis, it's about kicking the kids you love out of ...

Humpback Whales

The ferry terminal was about 2 miles from downtown where the cruise ships dock, so I didn't think I could make it there and back. We could see the cruise ships from where we were though, and it looked like there were three of them there. I could ...
