Home just a week since finishing the HWY 395 ride.  Needed to catchup.  From wind in my face to staring at a computer screen.  What a change.
Editing, processing, reviewing notes, writing, editing, editing, editing.  We were on a very short turn around time for HOG.  Finished the story, but not without the incredible help from Nancy.  She rocks!  Uploaded the photos.  Sent the word doc.  The creative team at HOG took it from there.   Just received the final layout which will be on the press Monday.  What a Friday.  It is beautiful!

Waiting for my flight at the Spokane airport I called Nancy and asked her what should I call the story.  “Wet and Wicked” she said.  She’s from Boston and when she’s says something is wicked it means awesome, and that’s exactly what the ride was. 

Kickstand down Santa Fe. (Not for long!)

be strong, be safe, Carlan   


  1. Carlan, Justine is Mike Miller's wife, and you have no idea how much the breakfast with you, Marty and John picked up his spirits. Parkinson's Disease is an ugly end of a productive life, and all that have it understand why Robin Williams did what he did. Brief breaks in Mikes daily routine that remain as the good memories are a blessing indeed.

    1. Justine, it was a very special time seeing Mike. Please let him know I think of him often.
