Monthly Archives: September 2010

It’s Over! It’s Over!

Via Instapundit: “WORLD WAR I NOW OFFICIALLY OVER: On September 26, 2010 — 92 years after the WWI officially ended — Germany made her last payment of $94 million in reparations “to private individuals, pension funds and corporations holding debenture bonds as agreed under the Treaty of Versailles.” As Keynes rightly predicted, the unreasonably high […]

A couple of notes:

I have made it home safe and sound, and if anyone wants my email it is: dadontheroad at barrowroad dot com.  Change the at and dot and drop the spaces! ~Curtis, safely in /\/\onTana! again!

Day 266: The Colorado National Monument, Part2

I was not there at the best time for some of the landscape photos.  The Moon was rising… The sun was setting… (Notice there is no guardrail; the shoulder is about three feet wide, sandy and drops off steeply to the couple of thousand foot cliff)! The valley was peaceful. (Stitched together from three photos […]

Day 265: The Colorado National Monument, Part 1

The second half of my third day on the road was pretty good, too. This was my camp at the Grand Junction, CO, KOA. (All photos taekn on the Nikon Coolpix L11 unless there is EXIF data) The trailer is picking up a few more stickers… Approaching the entrance to the Colorado National Monument! The […]

Day 264: Dinosaur National Monument, Utah

This is the first half of my day, or a little more. Sunrise in Vernal, UT. (Nikon Coolpix L11 on  auto, unless otherwise noted) My neighbor for the night, Jay R., riding a hot Yamaha FJR.  Seems to be a real nice fella.  He was headed home to the mid-west.   I had forgotten to […]

Bonus & Teaser

A great day on the North Rim.   I got up too early and watched the sunrise.   Here is me at Imperial Point, followed by a Teaser (looking out at Cape Royal) for things to come from the North Rim! (1/125, f8, 14mm, ISO 320, -1 stop, taken on Robyn’s Tokina 12-24!) (1/45, f16, 13mm, ISO […]

Day 263: Yellowstone and Beyond, Part 2

(Okay, I didn’t get to post yesterday…the Cortez, CO internet was down.  Tonight I am in my tent on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon!) Buffalo! More geysers across the lake!  Where? (Nikon Coolpix L11) There! (Nikon Coolpix L11) The Grand Tetons! (Nikon Coolpix L11, stitched from three photos in MS ICE) I think […]

Day 262: My morning in Yellowstone

Here is the first half of the second day: Foggy.  It wasn’t when I got up, but it was when I took off.  50 miles to Gardiner, /\/\T, and 40 of it was 30mph fog. (All photos Nikon Coolpix L11 unless otherwise noted!) There was a fire in the north east corner of Yellowstone National […]

Day 261: On the road again!

I packed up and headed out this afternoon, bound for the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.  I have been looking forward to this trip for many months now.  I got a nice little trailer from Harbor Freight to haul my camping gear and associated garbage, and with a bit help from my friend Vance, […]

Day 260

The night before I start my big trip and Dad came over for a Christian Motorcyclist Association meeting (in a truck!  Just a couple inches of snow and they all wimp out…).  So we had a big family (minus Daily Daughter 2.0) dinner.  Every one seemed pretty happy…well, almost everyone… (Nikon Coolpix L11 on auto) […]
