“Green Can-Am, – Comin’ in HOT!!”

Posted by TommyBoy on May 29, 2016 in Comments |

692 miles in eleven hours, flat… not bad, not bad at all… See, I told you I wasn’t very smart, NO ONE should do a ride like that. If you were watching my “tracker” (thanks to all of you who were ‘riding’ with me… I felt your presence), there were a LOT of times I […]

Santa Rosa, NM

Posted by TommyBoy on May 28, 2016 in Comments |

So, I went from Clinton, Oklahoma to Santa Rosa, New Mexico yesterday; – about 350 miles. I “almost” ran out of gas along the way. Running out of gas is a big deal in a car; running out on a motor-sickle is SERIOUS. Riding a motorcycle is a lot like being homeless. You ride “self-contained”, […]

Clinton, OK…

Posted by TommyBoy on May 27, 2016 in Comments |

Ha ha… gotcha… Not THAT Clinton… Clinton OKLAHOMA, Forrest! Geez… people are so jumpy in the political season. I COULD have stayed in Oklahoma City, you know. BUuuuut… on the off chance that Hillary stays in Clinton when she’s not staying in New York I rode an extra 60 miles to see her. She’s not […]

Conway Arkansas…

Posted by TommyBoy on May 25, 2016 in Comments |

Conway Arkansas?? – Yeah… Ya see, Gome… I left Wrens to go to ‘Lanna. (Atlanta, that’s the way they say it there, OR… “HotLanta” – I prefer ‘Lanna.) I’m telling you the truth when I say that ‘Lanna is a traffic MESS. I got stopped just outside of their perimeter-road; and couldn’t go anywhere.. ANYwhere… […]

Where in the World…

Posted by TommyBoy on May 23, 2016 in Comments |

…is Tommy San Diego?? When last we spoke, I was telling you about my travails in Key West. Hey, I got over it… “It is what it is.” Suffice to say, I’m glad I had that date, I’m definitely not taking her to the prom. So, where’d I go, right? Well, I went up to […]

Key West (or… a geographical “Blanch DuBois”)

Posted by TommyBoy on May 19, 2016 in Comments |

So… how was it, right? — Well, disappointing, that’s what. Key West has a major problem on its hands… they want the tourist money…. But, they don’t like tourists. It didn’t matter where I went, the “feeling”, the “attitude”, the “demeanor” was all the same…. “Leave us your money, but get the hell outta here.” […]

Approaching Key West

Posted by TommyBoy on May 19, 2016 in Comments |

  (That’s my motor-sickle helmet, in case you don’t recognize it) When last we spoke, I had just left Foley, Alabama… and was on my way to Tallahassee, FL. – So, just to bring you up to date, I eased on past Tallahassee…. and cruised on down toward Tampa (to try out with the Buccaneers.) […]

Tallassee-Lassee

Posted by TommyBoy on May 17, 2016 in Comments |

“She’s my ‘Tallahassee-Lassee… down in F-L-A…” What a great song…. Been singing it all day. I had lunch with one of my all-time favorite buds this past Saturday, Clayton “Corky” Harris. He is a fellow, ‘raconteur’, ‘rake’, and a ‘ramblin’-man’ I went to high school with. When we were in high skool, he and I […]

Childhood Friends

Posted by TommyBoy on May 14, 2016 in Comments |

One of the reasons I wanted to go on my “Magical-Mystery-Tour” motor-sickle trip was to see old buds, childhood friends, adult-hood friends and memorable events. And, speaking of childhood friends… this guy… Jack Turner, was one of the best. The house I lived in in my early childhood (say, 1 to 5) didn’t have any […]

A True American Hero…

Posted by TommyBoy on May 13, 2016 in Comments |

I saw a true American hero yesterday. Nope, it wasn’t John Wayne / Clint Eastwood / or Roy Rogers either. This was a REAL hero. I grew up with him. He caught LIVE snakes with his hands. He says, “Snakes don’t bother me too much” He said that while I sat with him, and he […]
