#HOGWild18: Day 3 – Memphis to Knoxville, Tennessee

The alarm went off this morning at 8:30. I pretended I didn’t hear it. I was exhausted after our day-long ride the previous day, plus all of the anniversary-ing. Scott really knows how to party. I was dreading today’s ride because I knew it was going to be a long one. And the temperature was just shy of Satan’s armpit. Needless to say, we spent a little extra time in prayer this morning before heading out. You can see fromRead more

#HOGWild18: Day 2 – El Dorado, Arkansas to Memphis, Tennessee

We spent our honeymoon a few years ago bicycling from San Fransisco through Sonoma County wine country and along the PCH until we reached Healdsburg, California. As a long time road cyclist, I loved it. Leah, who was not a fan of cycling, actually passed out on the first day’s first serious climb. But, she did survive to go on and finish the tour. I later asked her why in the world would she book a trip like that ifRead more

Gateway Motorcycle Group: Toledo Bend, Louisiana – Day 3

Welcome Home It wasn’t until we motored past the Welcome to Louisiana state line sign that it hit me. This is my home state. Unfortunately, Toledo Bend is nowhere near my Cajun Country home, but it was good to spend the afternoon back in the Bayou State. It was another early morning. We don’t do well in the early morning. My bike’s front tire was parked on a wire coat hanger from the night before. One of the guys, JohnnyRead more

Gateway Motorcycle Group: Piney Woods of Texas – Day 2

  It’s day 2 of the ride with our small group at Gateway Church, and kickstands were up at 8:30 this morning. We showered last night, and I went to bed at 8:45pm. Our alarm went off at 7:30am and we still hit snooze three times. As most of you know, Scott and I don’t keep regular hours. We’re usually going to bed about the time normal people are waking up to start their work day. But it works forRead more

Gateway Motorcycle Group: Piney Woods of Texas – Day 1

What’s your weather like? Ours was hot, like really super hot. But the company was cool. Like really super cool. Leah and I spent this day, and the next three days with our church’s small group. Gateway’s Southlake Riders is a group of motorbike enthusiasts who love Jesus and biking. In that order. Today was the start of our annual Fall Ride. It was a fantastic start. The Sleep But, before I share the details of the bike adventure, it’sRead more

Harley Davidson and Jesus: Ready 2 Ride

About a year ago, Leah and I were in church waiting for services to begin. I looked up on the screen and there was a video cranking up. It was full of motorcycles. What was this that I was watching? It was Gateway Church‘s small group Gateway Riders Southlake – small groups allow people to fellowship while enjoying their favorite activities, and serving Christ. We immediately connected with this group and they’ve since become dear friends. Saturday thru Tuesday (September 23Read more

#HOGWild17 Recap

For some crazy reason we couldn’t sleep after getting back home, so we tried to capture our thoughts about the adventure. I’m hoping Leah had more success with the facial scrub. This was a short video Facebook put together with a few great pics and videos from the trip. Below is a picture gallery of some of the shots we took during our trip. Thank for again for coming along Scott & LeahRead more

#HOGWild17: Day 21 – Waco to Home Base Dallas, Texas

Day 21, and oh what a bittersweet day it was. Leah and I wanted to do something a little different for our last day. We each took to the task of recounting our visit to Chip and Joanna Gaines‘ Magnolia at the Silos. And, we posed 5 questions to each other about our experiences. This should be entertaining. Neither of us read what the other wrote beforehand. Let’s Begin We arrived home around 4:30pm and immediately began debating over whoRead more

#HOGWild17: Day 20 – Waco, Texas

It’s Day 20! Somewhere between Albuquerque and Lubbock, we experienced a time change, which our phones chose not to observe. And for some reason, even though we checked into our hotel after 1am last night, we stayed up until 5am. Which means we actually got up at 12:30 instead of 11:30. Once again, we’re grateful our hotel status grants us guaranteed late checkout. Though it was probably a poor life choice to stay up until 5am, especially considering the longRead more
