Merry Christmas...

Here's wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!!

It's been an very interesting year for Nancy and me.

I had a lot of fun meeting a bunch of my fellow bloggers this summer on my road trip to Oregon. Thanks for inviting me.
I got to meet fellow blogger Doug this summer. We met up at a local diner to talk of riding and blogs.
I also got to meet another fellow blogger George, from New Jersey, when he was on his epic ride to Alaska. George spent the night here and we swapped many stories.
I got to really pile on the miles with a road trip to Arizona. Thank you John, for riding with me all these years. I plan to ride many more!
I attended my 14th Sturgis rally in as many years. Lyle and Garth, if you see this, I'll see you again this summer in SD. Kent, may God bless you and comfort you and your family.
Bob, you're more than welcome to stop by anytime if your riding brings you by this way.
I've also gained quite a few followers this year. Thank you for coming along!

Nancy and I are headed to MN to visit my sister and her family on Christmas Day, so we decided to exchange gifts a little early.
I got Nancy some warm Sorel boots and a couple of Franklins (Bob, do you need a translation?). She sure surprised me! She bought me the GoPro Hero 3! I love you dear! She also got me a new hat to bring along on trips. Is there really any other color for it??
Bob, notice the blaze orange Toque? (AKA: stocking cap, or watch cap)

I wish you Peace, Happiness, and all the very best,



  1. Merry Chistmas to you and your family!

  2. It looks like you both did very well this Christmas, nice little haul. It was great to meet you last summer and look forward to it again someday.
    Merry Christmas to you, Nancy and the kittehs.

  3. Merry Christmas to you and Nancy. Looks like santa was very kind to you, a new Gopro. You will have lots of fun with that, I got mine last christmas and love it.

  4. Happy and safe travels Erik, in every direction.

  5. Merry Christmas to you and Nancy.

    It was great to meet and ride with you this year. Thank you for riding all that way.

    All the best to you in 2013 and we'll be waiting for those GoPro Videos.....

  6. Erik & Nancy:

    Okay, it took a while but a Franklin is like a Benjamin, but I've never heard of a "sock" hat before, but Toques YES. My toque is a boring black or dark blue (I have a few)

    You people talk funny down in WI. We don't really exchange gifts but I also scored a GoPro3 Silver edition, but I need to buy the remote for it. Boxing day special. Oh, I forgot you don't have Boxing Day in the USA, think . . . Black Friday, sort of

    Have a very Merry Christmas
