Jarbidge, Nevada USA

Taken on a mountain road near Jarbidge Nevada. Jarbidge is a cool little town in Northern Nevada that was founded as a gold mining camp. There are about 20 permanent residents year-round, and during the summer there are maybe 100.


This is Helen and Orn in Jarbidge. Helen moved to Jarbidge with her folks when she was a little girl and saw the town grow from a gold camp to an actual town. They live in So. Cal during the winter and come back here during the summer. Orn isn't her first husband, I think he's her younger boyfriend. When I was riding through the town, I stopped and walked around. Orn saw me on my bike and called out to me to stop and shoot the shit. They invited me in to talk about my adventure, fed me some fresh peaches and ice cream. Orn showed me his photography, and Helen regaled me with stories of Jarbidge during the gold rush. It was also a chance to pitch her autobiography - about guess what? Growing up in a gold rush town. They were so nice I felt kinda obligated to buy it even though I was pretty broke.

Here's one I have from the Blue Ridge Pkwy last year on my way up to tour around New England.



And here's another one in the other direction. Skyline drive in Canon City, Co a few years ago...

And this one was last week at the Rebel Yell in Suches, GA. It's hard to see the bike but it's there under the clouds...

Annual Tour de Go Somewhere 2005

On the second day of the trip we woke up to a balloon festival that was launching about 200 yards from our campsite and flew right over us.
Raton, NM



Headed up to Independance Pass, CO



Cold and wet...The wood should be dry by the time I get to the campsite.
Mt. Rushmore, SD



Running from the storm.
