Adventure West 2018 – Photos and GPS Logs

Here are the photos from the Trip West that Alan and I took. There will be several videos in the following weeks. The bikes were trailered to Helena Montana, unloaded there and we rode for 13 days (2,775 miles) through Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and parts of Washington, Utah, and plenty of others I have forgot… Total trip was about 7,055 miles, 20 Days. None of the photos or videos will come close to conveying the awe and beauty of any of these places. Simply Amazing. PHOTOS            GPS Trip Log

Dads 63rd Birthday – Day at the Gun Range

My father is a member of a new indoor gun range, Defense in Depth, and they have a deal where you get to shoot a full auto on your birthday (you pay for ammo) They have several you can choose from, he chose the FN P90, which holds 50 rounds per mag, and fires at a rate of 900 rounds per minute. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Certainly the nicest gun range I have been to, by far. I liked that the targets could be programmed to spin, move back and forth, and do several pre-programmed movements for […]

2017 Trip – C&O Canal, Norfolk, Outer Banks, Smokies

   My friend Alan and I had another motorcycle trip planned for this year. Unfortunately he injured his shoulder and was unable to ride. So we did this trip in my truck instead. It took away a bit of the adventure of it all, but we both have to admit that the truck is quite a bit more convenient.     This trip was 11 Days, 8 States, and about 2,300 miles. I wish I had the time to write a proper trip report for this, but I was lucky to find the time to go through all the photo […]

Grafton, WV Memorial Day Parade 2017

Met up with a couple local jeep clubs that were taking part in the Grafton, WV Memorial Day Parade. Was a great turn out with about 100 Jeeps showing up to be in the parade. It made for a looooong day though. Was alot of sitting around in parking lots and lined up on the street waiting to enter the parade. But it was still a good time and we were lucky enough to have great weather. Here are the photos from the day. https://jtice.smugmug.com/PlacesEvents/Memorial-Day-Parade-2017/ And here is a short video.

World of Wheels Car Show – 1-21-17

    Went to see the World of Wheels Car Show in PA today. It was an indoor show at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is a huge facility. We have seen some really nicely restored cars at shows over the years, but the custom work at this show was outstanding. My Photos from the show

Family Vacation to Colorado 2016

   The family and I took a trip out to Colorado to visit with my brother, its a trip we have talked about for several years and we finally made it happen. We had an amazing time and it certainly will not be our last time out west! Suck a beautiful area and so much to see. I would like to write a full trip report about it all, but I simply dont have the time right now. For now I will just try to list most of the places we visited and like always, I took lots of photos. […]

Hatfield McCoy Trails – Bear Wallow – Long Crawl Trail

    Took a trip down to Ethal, WV to a fairly new section of trails now open to 4x4s at Hatfield McCoys Bear Wallow Park. We camped out at Chief Logan State Park the night before, then headed to Bear Wallow the next day. This was by far the most challenging trail I have done in quite a while and was the first true test of my Jeep JK. Overall I was very pleased with how the Jeep did. I only had to winch twice, which wasnt bad considering I am only running 35″ tires. As far as I […]
