The end of a beginning
I've been contemplating this post for a week now, possibly hedging, as it marks a conclusion; my rambling ruminations on the miles covered and the races run will quiet for a while and my focus will shift from accumulating miles to honing my skills and prepa...

A desert in Barbary: Stages of the sand
I am four days removed from the Sahara's buffeting wind, a wind which enveloped me from all sides, whether urging me forth, mocking my progress across the land, embracing me in a lazy caress, or causing comedic havoc by collapsing our sleeping quarters in t...

This is the last Flashback Friday for me for one simple reason: Let us recall how I got here one last time..... And yet, we are remiss about ending our sentence properly. But, then again, pirate. By the numbers: Five years, one month, 28 days since my injur...

A desert in Barbary: On foreign soil

FBF: Don't feed the camels!
