North America » United States » Maine » Midcoast January 1st 2007

Days to Departure: 1. Amount of stuff I still have to do before I leave: Infinite. Anywho, I'm putting together this site to act as a compilation of my experiences traveling and studying abroad in Belize. This is my last year at the University of Vermont, and amazingly enough, I still have the opportunity to study abroad, despite pending graduation. Perhaps this will provide me some insight as to what comes next, as I've been quite satisfied with life as a student. One can only hope. Right now, I'm sitting around in dismal midcoast Maine, and finding it difficult to prepare for days where it will be 85 and sunny as opposed to the fabulous freezing rain were experiencing at the moment. Here's to catching that 530 am plane... ... read more

08 Installing Floorboards on my 05 883 Harley Davidson Sportster, Effie. -- 1 March 2008 Finally a warm day it’s a good day for a ride, but I wanted to put one of the new accessories on that I had bought over the winter. I had decided to try floorboards last year. I spend a lot of time on my bike and have found that it affects the way I walk. The story behind this is the bike is air cooled, on hot days the back cylinder gets really hot because my legs were cutting off the air going to it. So I need to bow my legs out to allow air to get between my legs and the engine. This puts my ankle at an unusual angle. During the summer I wear my boots all ... read more

I was in the Rose Parade! It was so freakin insane. My friend Jeff was on it too... and wow did our cheeks and arms hurt when it was over. I've never been to it before, so I was shocked by the millions of people that come out to see it. I had guys yelling "I LOVE YOU!" at me and little kids looking excited when you say Happy New Year to them. So I got there about a week before to help build the float.... glue was everywhere. This was my second time working on a float, first time ridding. Now when they say that everything is made from a plant... they really mean it! I did under the car with these shredded flowers... ahahaha I was digging it out of my hair, eyes, mouth, ... read more

North America » United States » Nevada » Las Vegas January 1st 2007

Got up relatively early at 9.30 and headed to another factory outlet at the other end of the strip. Was not as good as yesterdays one- just bought and extra suitcase to take home all the stuff we bought. So we lefty fairly early and decided to walk back down the strip to our hotel. We walked in a few more Casinos and had a look. Lots of cool stuff and free shows. Then we came across my favorite shop 'M&M World'. It was great- 4 levels. Everything you can think off- as M&M merchandise. Level 3 had a 3D show to watch. It was just huge. I loved it. Kept walking down the strip looking at everything and came across the half price ticket box and got some tickets to American Superstars which is look ... read more

North America » United States » Rhode Island January 1st 2007

Around 9 am on January 1, 2007 I was ready to get back on the road and head to my first Hostel in Newport, Rhode Island. The homes in that area of New Jersey are incredible. I was told they still have fox hunts on horseback and play polo. I guess they have not broken away entirely from the motherland yet. It is very pretty up there. I arrived at the Hostel around 4 and the person running the Hostel was not there, but had left a numbr to call. It turned out she was on her way back from NYC too. She said every year they have a New Years run in Central Park and she had done that. She told me how to get in and then I waited for her to arrive. The ... read more

North America » United States » California » San Diego December 31st 2006

well ive met up with my mates and we have been to Las Vegas and i drove us down to San Diego. Vegas was a bit crazy, its like the gold coast on steroids basically. THere is drinking, shopping and gambling. If u dont like these things then basically its a town in the middle of the desert! we had a great time. dont know if anyone is reading this (a very large possibility and i may be the only 1 who reads this!!) il continue anyway. we are in san diego which looks really nice. Its a slower pace than in Vegas and is by the beach and also home of Miramara air force base (the home of Top Gun). we went down to Tijuana in Mexico, just below the US border. was an amazing ... read more

North America » United States » Missouri » Springfield December 31st 2006

We got up early again. Rain. And lots of it! WE stayed in a KOA which was nice but lots of standing water on our RV lot. It is such a pain to pack up in the rain. This KOA was quite nice and they served Belgian waffles for breakfast (free, of course!!) on Sundays. I am not a big breakfast fan but Mike is so he was happy w/ the waffles. Now we are headed to Missouri. Tomorrow we are going to see our friend, Jan, in Jenks, OK. We met her and her hubby on our first trip out in 03. Her husband, Tall Paul, died shortly after returning home. We have not seen Jan since then but have stayed in touch. We are very anxious to see her and her family. We will ... read more
