Going Broke, The End

Three years and six months after dropping $10,000 on Going Broke, a clean female 4WD Nissan Pathfinder, we happily, I mean sadly, no I really do mean happily, accepted Carmax’s $1500 offer. South Florida may well be her final resting place. The premature grave...

Hawaii and the Asheville Six

Having more time than anticipated after hammering through the last batch of six highpoints we realised that the next six were still en route to Florida and all surrounding the city of Asheville, North Carolina. There was no excuse that during our week with a good...

Six in the East plus Utah

Our love, (wait, did I say love!) for driving is once again taking us on a repeat route up towards Massachusetts, this time to bag more of those ridiculous state highpoints. Last time we were out this way we skipped six on the east coast as we were over driving,...

Fall on the San Juan Skyway

We are both feeling very fortunate to have gone from hiking the amazingly scenic John Muir Trail in California’s Sierras straight to Durango and the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado. Even better was lucking out on some typical Colorado weather for...

JMT: Beyond Muir Trail Ranch

With the likes of Forester, Glen and Pinchot passes behind us we assumed that the second half of the John Muir Trail would be plain sailing – wrongly assumed that is! The entire 220 plus miles are continuously up and down. In fact, for us the most difficult and...

JMT: 111 Miles until Resupply

Typically time flew by and before we knew it we were sitting having Chinese, excellent Chinese at that, in Lone Pine, California the evening before our big departure. Going Broke, our SUV, was patiently waiting for us at Mammoth Airport and all we had with us was what...

John Muir Trail Preparation

It wasn’t until our short time spent in Yosemite National Park a couple of years ago, then hearing from a friend how amazing a hike the 220 mile John Muir Trail actually is that we started thinking that this sounded right up our alley. The seed was set, the...

West of the Badlands

Continuing on from an out-of-the-way Iowa our route took a very direct west towards the Dakotas. We had driven this same road 3 years earlier and had been close to the places we were now revisiting for our state highpoint goal – just wish this had been on the...

En route to Lake Superior

An early exit from the Tour Divide bike race allowed us to take a non-direct route from Kentucky to our month long housesitting job in Bozeman, Montana. It would also enable Andrea to complete her quest to visit all fifty states, an achievement that took almost 44...

55,000 Feet of Up

Sitting here writing this I’m still kicking myself for not currently being part of the Tour Divide 2017 mountain bike ride! Then I look down at the swelling and feel the tingling in the fingers on my right hand. Then I stand up and feel the grating along the...

Saint-Pierre & Miquelon by Fatbike

Had it not been for the Century Travelers Club neither of us would have heard of this little slice of France in the northern Atlantic. Listed under the North American countries/ territories heading this turned out to be the last of our places to visit within that...

Cape Breton Island

Home of the Cabot driving trail and ferry departure point to the province of Newfoundland, Cape Breton Island is renowned for its Celtic influence, art scene, and amazing coastline. It was here we got to camp at one of our top ten all time campsites at Meat Cove, be...
