    Road Less Traveled

    I love the back roads. The back roads are where I first learned to drive. If you ever come to my house you must travel the back roads just to get there. Yeah I live out in the stick some would say. But it is the road less traveled and life just seems to be a little slower and...

    Taking Your Time.........seeing the Sights!

    I grew up on Long Island, NY.  It was a beautiful place, urban, then suburban and rural the further east you went. My mother loved to take rides. We rode all of the time taking different roads, seeing different things. We drove east to Montauk Point and to Orient Point so...

    I Do

    I hate motorways, except for the speed that can be used on them But I much prefer the scenery of back roads, where they have the possibility to take me, and how I can get lost on them

     They Are Great to Tak...

     They are great to take when you want to get away from people and sometimes the stress of the whole world. You just need some time alone without all people breathing down your freaking throat.

    The windows are down. Your favorite mix is playing on your ipod and cranked loud. There is no one on the road but you, and all around you it's green and summery, like a fairy tale world. The wind carries the scent of the forest and the sunlight. You can go as slow or as fast as...

    "It's where I drank my first beer.

    It's where I found Jesus....." Red Dirt Roads, Black Tar Roads, Dusty Gravel Roads, any Back Road takes me back to growing up in Texas. A lot of living took place on those roads.

    There's a fire burning bright at our house

    tonight, slow music playing, and soft candlelight. On her lips I keep tasting that warm red wine, I'm there in her arms but it's all in my mind.

    My African Backroads And Trails

    Come with me on a ride on my mountain bike where I love to ride - out into the wild African bush. I'm alone from people, just my bike and me, on the rugged track you couldn't truly call a road. It's early morning, the sky crystal-clear, intense blue. Already high above black...

    Get Off the Pavement

    I love to get off the paved roads; up into the hills along the dirt roads.  The places where streams are still crossed at fords, and where getting out and walking ahead on a mountain curve is a prudent idea. I love to travel the old federal and state highways from before...

    Somewhere Less Traveled...

    I've found neat and beautiful things on roads less traveled.  I like backroads because, I feel you see more when you take them.  I take them just to clear my mind.  Do something different.  Get away from the day in and day out grind.
