Over the past few summers I have tackled the National Road, the Oregon Trail, and I've motorcycled to the Arctic Circle (Yukon) and Alaska. In the summer of 2013 I tackled Illinois Route 1. Starting on the south side of Chicago, Illinois 1 is the longest state highway, meandering south until it ends in Cave In Rock, Illinois, on the banks of the Ohio River. Once again, I operated with the assistance of Verizon Wireless, using an Apple iPhone and Nokia Lumia 928 to make all photographs.

Day 1: The way I roll

Posted: June 2nd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: General posts | No Comments »

For those of you wondering at home– YES! I got rained on (twice).  That’s just the way I roll.

I have stopped  for the day just outside of Indy. I met a lot of nice folks today and ran into one of my former students. It hard to roll the miles when you are yakking along.  I had a small panic when the bike started sputtering (until I remembered to switch over to reserve).

I pulled two photos to show (below). I am saving the rest to work on when I return.  If all goes well tomorrow, I will be in an insane asylum  (no joke.)
