8eaaeb06My family is my world. Christ is my Savior. Of course, it is obvious that cycling is a huge part of my life. I stay physically and mentally fit, while struggling to understand the redundant Lifetime plots of man-hating movies. My son graduated from The University of Alabama and now works in Huntsville. My daughter graduated from Columbus State University, works in Atlanta, and holds my heart in the palm of her hand. John Steinbeck is incredible, and Batman is the best superhero. I try not to cry, holding to the strength of my tearless gender, but the Notebook kicked me in the gut. Nobody is better cowboy than Robert Duvall, and one day I will pack out and ride in Montana. Muscle cars make me giddy. I was a heathen in high school but graduated with honors in college. The Army brought structure to my life, but my wife showed me how to be selfless and love without bounds . . . she is my essence.

  1. Hi, Just came across your blog. Really enjoy the spirit for cycling you bring to your writing. I will follow your posts. Thanks. Steve

  2. I didn’t know Dan, but I was an MP as well from 1987 to 2010. One of the other guys on that ridge 13 years ago had been one of my Soldiers–Brian “Cody” Prosser, also a former MP. I know exactly how you feel. Thanks for your words about Dan. I retired right back here at McClellan…see Cheaha everyday. Take care.

  3. Yes SIr…it is a super small world and small war. I happened to know (later found out) that two other guys I knew were on that ridge with them that day. You’ve read the book so you will know who Jason and Donald are. In 2006 I stood on that very ridge with one of them again with my team. Very eerie. Thanks for your comments and your remembrance of Dan. Wish I’d have known him, but I feel that I did deep down inside. Take care and Merry Christmas!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following. I am glad you found something you like. I share your love of the two-wheeled vehicle. I was surprised by your photo. You don’t look old enough to have college-age and college graduate kids. You must be doing something right. Keep up the good work!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking something. While I ride my bike every day, I don’t post on biking every day. I am glad you are finding useful info.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying yours. I have ridden in some parts of the world that that are on your bucket list. Do visit them. My next international rides are Thailand, the hilly North, in 2016 and France, for a second time, in 2017. Keep writing and riding.

  7. Did you and your son finish the Appalachian Trail? That is something that I would love to do and has been on my to-do list for years now. Just waiting on the right time (and enough time) for my friend and I to do it. I really enjoyed your about page. Seems that we have a lot in common in regard to our core values. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

      1. If I lived closer, I’d probably try the sections first too. Unfortunately, I’m on the western side of the US. You’re welcome and I’m sure you won’t.
