And So The Adventure Begins

It has been almost two years since I rode my bike to New Orleans. I'm about one-hour behind my take-off time, but I'm ready to go now and hope to make that hour up on the road.  Tales from the road continue.  It's All Good!

Spring Break

This is the first spring break in three years that I have not brought students to New Orleans to do Alternative Spring Break. I really needed this Spring Break all to myself, and I intend to relax as much as I can with the family and with the bike.

This week's agenda includes taking Devin to the Lego shop in Austin, spending a few hours down on South Congress to enjoy what we can of SXSW, and then for me later this week to spend a day at SXSW on my own. Later this week I finally get to ride to New Orleans and spend a few days there with friends chilling out.

Looks like a wonderful Spring Break. It's All Good

Missing Another Mardi Gras

It's funny how I "rationalize" reasons for not going to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. First, I say it's the money. No doubt, it costs over $200 in gas alone to get down there. Well, it's always about the money, really....  I've got places to stay, so I don't have to worry about that. But going to New Orleans anytime will cost me almost $500. That's lots of money during a time when we're trying to save money and pay off bills.

So, I'll live my Mardi Gras experience once again vicariously through my friends' instagrams, facebook posts, and other social media.

I will make it home next year. I know I will....

Its All Good!
