A Bike Shop that is changing the world

In the tiny town of Hampton, NY lies a Bike Shop that is changing the world. I'd been living in Poultney, a small traditional Vermont town, for four years before leaving on my kayak trip

Ride the Catskills

Lexie has loved to ride since the first time I put her on a bike at 3 yrs old and there is no better way to celebrate than to do what she loves to do. So I took Lexie, her Mommy Arlene and I we went riding through the Catskills of New York. Our destination was simple. I wanted to get a picture at the Big Indian sign

Canada to Key West Paddle – Day 46

She remembered the older pictures very well, but the more recent ones, that is, those in the 80’s and 90’s weren’t sparking any memory, though she did recognize the pictures and the people, she had not connection to them or why they would be there. For instance, I had a picture of her and her brother (now deceased) at her father’s funeral. She recognized her brother and the location, but didn’t know her Dad had passed.

Canada to Key West Paddle – Day 57

When I began this journey, my goal was to find Life after Death; specifically, my life after Lexie’s death. I needed to find out who I was. Where was the happiness I had with Lexie and where was I going. I needed to be able to be happy again. I turned to the one element that always brought me peace – Water. I set my sights on Key West for Key West was the farthest south I could go by kayak.

Right Back where I started from

I made an announcement on Facebook and the “Welcome Home” messages began arriving, but there was a problem. I wasn’t home. This wasn’t home. Home is where your heart is, right? So where is my heart. I walked around; I visited with my neighbors whom I use to spend so much time with. I walked into my old room. Saw the basement I had worked so hard renovating, all finished. I walked down to the water, the water I had missed so much. This wasn’t home. This is where I use to live and perhaps this will be where I spend a few months as I work things through, but home, no, its not here.
