Louisiana, 1 parish at a time.

One of the things I’ve been looking forward to about spending the winter months back in  my home state of Louisiana was to get out and explore the state I didn’t really know. In only a couple weeks, I’ve passed through over 50 of the 64 parishes in Louisiana.  Only a few more to “geaux” 😉.  I’ll get back to the last few after Christmas.

The 6 corners/ 64 parish ride started when I got to share a few miles with another Super Tenere owner Richard Stahl down to Rutherford beach and Cameron one day. Thanks Richard for joining me ! Then a few days later, I loaded up the bike on the van and headed out to bag a few parishes on the list.  Made it to Joint Reserve Base New Orleans at Belle Chase for the night before heading to “the end of the world” in Venice La. , they were right… couldn’t go any farther.  I then headed up to just outside Monroe to meet and hang out with RV queen Charlotte Holland. She is a contact I made through Facebook group for RVing. She was kind enough to let me park in her driveway for a few days while I did a few loops around the Northeast corner of the state. One day I was on the bike and the other she rode with me. She was an excellent navigator! Thanks Charlotte!






Thank you Colorado friends!

A huge THANK YOU needs to be sent out to all the friends that I’ve made in Colorado!  I had such a great time in the 3 and a half months riding around Central Colorado. Putting 5000 miles on the Tenere was proof! 

First off is Stacey Schooley , her fiancé Michael Jenkinson and family for hosting me in their basement the entire time.  thanks a bunch❤️! Randy & Donna Sprouse(Stacey’s parents) helped too! The new friends I made Tirza🌹, Pete West (blinkys mountain riders), Tana & Brady Allen🤘,  fellow Tenere rider Alan Humes, GS riders David Lux, Rachelle McMillan, Lee & Bex Becker, David Craig’s, Magnus, Cole and his crew and finally George Furko of the Northern Colorado Adventure riders. 

I know I’ll be back next year!
