Alive and well (and in Denver!)


It has been nearly two weeks since I set out on my journey to see North America up close and personal, by scooter and tent and foot, and while I've been doing the best I can to keep my whereabouts updated by GPS and Twitter, I recognize I've been neglecting the blog this past fortnight.

So, here it is, a brief check-in to say that I'm alive and well (very well, actually), having one hell of a time seeing some pretty amazing things. Here's a runthrough of my stops to date:

  • Shenandoah National Park, VA
  • Asheville, NC
  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN
  • Knoxville, TN
  • Nashville, TN
  • Natchez Trace, MS
  • New Orleans, LA
  • Austin, TX
  • Big Bend National Park, TX
  • Marfa, TX
  • Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM
  • El Paso, TX
  • Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
  • White Sands National Monument, NM
  • Albuquerque, NM
  • Santa Fe, NM
  • Taos, NM
  • Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO
  • Denver, CO

My data connection has been spotty while on the road, and my free time (whatever that means) in short supply, but more details (many more) to come soon (very soon), I promise.


  1. jay that is totally amazing! I can't believe how far you have gotten in such a short time. The girls ask me EVERY day "mommy where's jay? " lol. Stay safe and keep scooting! The pictures are amazing. It sounds like you are having an amazing adventure. I'm almost zealous :)

    1. Thanks! It has been exhausting, but well worth it. I miss you, and the girls. Hope you're all doing well!

    2. jay, this is exciting to read... It sounds like a very good book that you can't put down. I think you should publish this and save the ending for the book! That would be awesome!!

  2. I agree, if I hadn't found it so dammed difficult to navigate this blog. Enough whining. I'm enjoying it immensely..giulia
