Having been born and raised in Sturgis, South Dakota, you would think I might have grown up on the back of a bike. But that's not the case with most people from Sturgis since it's largely an agricultural community.
I learned to ride a boyfriend's dirtbike in the middle of a prairie dog town when I was in high school. I wasn't tall enough to ride the 500cc alone so he rode on the back to put his feet on the ground when we stopped. Snowmobiles and 4-wheelers were easier for me to manage, but eventually I wanted a bike.
Travel has always been my passion, so I usually spent weekends, vacations and holidays somewhere other than home. Living in South Dakota creates a true appreciation for wide open spaces. We have beautiful skies in that part of the world. But there are lots of beautiful places in the world - beaches, mountains, prairies........so I've decided to go travel for a while.
This is a sort of journal for my travels and experiences. I'm hopeful you enjoy the ride.
