Ten years ago to the day I started something new, that new endeavor being the creation of this Blog. It sounded and looked like fun, something that I'd enjoy and I most certainly have. The how and why of what started all of this.....well....the following says it all...
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog! It's nice to know
someone reads it.
I started my blogs because my riding buddies would always ask, "what
year did we ....?" With the blog, I can note some of the daily
activities from our anual Sturgis trips. I also spend a lot of time
riding solo, and the blogs are a great way to keep track of, who,
what, where, and when, and it makes it easy to share info with them.
I'm guessing that you found the link to my blog on the MotoCampers.com
web site? I really need to spend more nights camping and fewer nights
in hotels, but staying in hotels on a road trip make it so easy to
pack. I enjoy the camping that we (my riding buddies) do in Belle
Fourche, SD. But after the rally is over most of the guys go home, and
it's usually John and I going somewhere for a week or so. I have to
look into UPS'ing the camp equipment out and back home to make packing
If you haven't started to blog your trips, you should. Blogspot.com
makes things very easy. It's pretty much pick a design and fill in the
words and pictures.
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

So there you have it. Erik and I made the Blog connection and from there I was quickly and very warmly welcomed into his circle of bloggers. A few of them are still very active, some others appear to be off and on. As can be expected a few have disappeared, at least from what I can tell. When Blogger changed the format of the home pages, access to my blog friends required one extra click of the mouse and sadly, I've been negligent and too lazy to always make the effort to check up on everyone. Not in any way justification but as an explanation, over these last few years when I sit down to compose, report and publish my recent antics, the process goes fast, the time I spend on the blog posting seems to get pinched more and more with the other things that occupy my Computer Time.
