  • Frolicking in the Foothills of the Smoky Mountains #CanAmSpyder

    Frolicking in the Foothills of the Smoky Mountains #CanAmSpyder

    I love living in Atlanta. After all, Atlanta has professional sports, big name concerts, a colorful history, bustling nightlife, world class museums, and an extraordinary food scene. I could live a full and happy life here without ever leaving the city. But, as someone with the wanderlust gene and a having access to a midlife crisis mobile, getting out of town is something I have to do – even if it’s just for a day. So for my most recent […]

    Falcon’s Fury: North America’s tallest freestanding drop tower

    Falcon’s Fury stands at 335 feet and takes riders soaring 60mph straight down. At the ride’s highest point Busch Gardens has added an element of surprise; like its bird of prey namesake, riders pivot 90 degrees in midair to a face-down dive position. An instant later, riders plunge with speed and power that they’ve never experienced before.

  • Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile #BucketList

    Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile #BucketList

    It may seem a bit strange that a grown man would put “Riding in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile” on his bucket list, but life has no spice without a little quirkiness. Besides, ever since I first learned of the Wienermobile as a kid, it’s been something that I’ve wanted to do. When the opportunity finally knocked, I answered the door. It happened like this: I was recently participating in a travel centric twitter chat. One of the chat questions asked […]

  • first zombie killed in AMC's The Walking Dead

    In search of Zombies on a #CanAmSpyder

    It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of road trips. I’m also a huge supporter of our men and women in uniform and a huge fan of AMC’s The Walking Dead series. So when I learned that a ladies riding club, called the Bomber Girls LRC, was sponsoring the Biking Dead Tour to raise money for our troops, I couldn’t wait to hit the road in search of zombies on a #CanAmSpyder!  The ride was from Newnan, Georgia (located […]

    Road trip to Stone Mountain on a #CanAmSpyder

    The day had finally arrived to take my first road trip on my #CanAmSpyder (my midlife crisis-mobile)! Since I had little experiencing driving anything with less than four wheels, I had to promise my wife that I would stay off the interstates, obey the speed limits and be back home in time to fix dinner. Yes, as a writer and foodie with a job that doesn’t require regular hours, I’m the one who usually has to fix dinner.  … and […]

    Have Spyder, Will Travel #CanAmSpyder

    I have always considered road trips to be the perfect therapy for a midlife crisis. The long awaited arrival of my Can-Am Spyder (my midlife crisis-mobile), marked the day that my road-tripping would take on a whole new dimension! I haven’t been this excited about my personal mobility since I was 10 years old and got a brand new 10 speed Schwinn bicycle for Christmas. I remember it raining for three consecutive days that Christmas. It was pure torture not […]

    A trip to Molokai is an elixir for your mind, body and spirit #SeeMolokai

    A trip to Molokai is an elixir for your mind, body and spirit. It is a great stress reliever, a delicious departure from day to day life, an escape to the extraordinary. It is a place to experience new things, challenge your limits, come face to face with your fears, soak in tradition and history, bask in the the sunlight, meditate in the mist, culture, breathe in the beauty of the island and its people, soul search or simply relax.

  • Kalaupapa National Historical Park: Bittersweet Beauty #SeeMolokai

    Kalaupapa National Historical Park: Bittersweet Beauty #SeeMolokai

    Kalaupapa National Historical Park is bittersweet, not the kind of place you travel to buy souvenirs. It is the kind of place from which you bring back lasting memories. Novelist, poet, essayist, and travel writer, Robert Louis Stevenson described it as a prison fortified by nature. It is not easy to get to but so worth the effort. On the Hawaiian island of Molokai, it is surrounded by the crashing waves of the pacific ocean on three sides and 1,700 ft high sea cliffs on the other. There is to say the least, limited access to the peninsula. You can fly in by small plane, hike or ride on mule back down the 2.9 mile steep trail with 26 switchbacks and the most breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Unless you are a guest of one of the few residents, the only way to visit is with Damien Tours. Very exclusive, only 100 people are permitted to enter daily, and that includes resident’s guests.
