The Return to Highway 301!

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Yesterday, I set out on another motorcycle journey up US-301. As I previously mentioned, I thought that writing a follow up to my first 301 photo post would be a good way start off after having fixed the site. Since that first post, I’ve received a number of comments from people who remember traveling the […]

Stupid WP hacking

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Yesterday, I realized that my site had been compromised. It likely had been for months, but I hadn’t noticed. I noticed after posting a link on twitter about my site being back up, and checked it on my work computer. The malware that was installed redirected users to sites at * and tried to trick […]

Hey, this is a thing I used to do.

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

I used to write stuff. I used to write stuff a lot. Leave a record. Document my journey. Shit like that. That’s not really something I do anymore, and I think that’s bad. It started with livejournal back in 2001. I only got an account after I found out there were “friends only” posts, and […]

The 270 mile sandwich

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

There it is folks, the 270 mile sandwich. The other day at breakfast, I was drinking out of an old reusable cup I had from Jimmy John’s. After I went to work, the thought occurred to me that I hadn’t eaten a Jimmy John’s sub since before I moved to Georgia in 2008. This got […]

Shakedown Cruise

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Well folks, it has been a long time. I’m still kicking, just not writing very much. Recently, I picked up a new exhaust system for the motorcycle. Now, I’ve been trying to live on the cheap lately so that I can pay off some bills and get some more life into my savings account. However, […]

A Trip to Hilton Head Island

Monday, May 25th, 2009

I woke up today without much of a plan of what I was going to do. After waking up, and doing a few things around the apartment, I noticed that there was actually sunshine outside. It wasn’t unqualified sunshine—there were dark clouds in part of the sky, and the forecast for the region called for […]

The Your PNC Rage center. Also, blog theft.

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

A couple of years back I wrote a post about my experiences with PNC and their overdraft fees. I thought the point of a debit card was that you couldn’t overdraw. I was wrong. Whatever. What is more interesting is that my blog seems to become something of a water cooler for PNC rage. It […]

Motorcycle Music!

Sunday, May 24th, 2009

Recently, I’ve been bitten by the “must modify the motorcycle” bug. A short while ago, I added crash bars and highway pegs—they both look good and are functional for long rides. I have also been looking for other ways to make my longer rides more enjoyable, and came across the Kuryakyn Air Master fairing setup. […]

I’ve done stuff today.

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

So far today I: Got out of bed around 9:00 AM. (On a Saturday, shocking!!) Walked a beagle. Cooked an actual breakfast. I used a pan and the stove and everything. Performed surgery on my laptop (had to take the entire thing apart to replace the touch pad and to clean out dust). Took all […]

Highway 301

Monday, April 20th, 2009

Yesterday afternoon I decided to hop on the bike and ride North up U.S. 301. On my drive to and from Pittsburgh for the AFC Championship game in January, I took US 301 to US 321 before hitting I-77. What I noticed about these roads was that they were both pretty empty as far as […]
