41+ Yrs

I have been exploring since I was at least 5 years old
when I traveled around our city block for the first time
on my tricycle totally alone with no one knowing I was.

Since then I have explored in 93 countries through
9 different single complete trips around the world
and several individual trips to one to 4 continents
before returning home.

Rushmore and the states in between.

In 1977 I began my international traveling.

On this webpage you can connect to many photo albums, TRAVEL JOURNALS and Articles based upon my traveling.

Since I “Motorcycled Around Europe with a BackPack and a Euro-Rail Pass” in 1977 I have continually met people who also love to travel and many who have out traveled me

and my 93 countries and 49 US states.

Thanks to the creation of so many new media or software or systems on the WWW and the internet I have continually gotten to meet, virtually, many other travelers.

Among them is a family who have bicycled across the US and from the northern tip of Alaska to the southern tip of Chile.
