Most of the time, one 4th of July blends into another.  Each year is more or less the same.  There is a barbecue.  There are sparklers.  There is trying to find the dog that is hiding because the neighbors are setting off fireworks.  There is the rought start to the 5t...

Once I finally got my hands on the Rascal, I headed north to Leeds where there were spare parts waiting.  The initial plan was to pick up the Rascal early in the afternoon, head to Leeds for parts, and then start back towards London.  My rugby buddy, Rich, is competing...

I rolled out of Heathrow with a spring in my step and a vague idea of where I was going.  Some quick google searching had shown me that there was a “tube” that ran from Heathrow into downtown London and, from there, I could catch a train up to Sheffield where my van wa...

The flight from Chicago to London got off to a rocky start.  I was called up to the gate and had my seat re-booked.  The nice woman behind the counter gave me a bulkhead seat so I would have plenty of legroom and not have to worry about someone reclining into my lap....

Two weeks.  

Two weeks from now I will be at the Goodwood Raceway getting ready to embark on a 10,000 mile road rally through twenty countries in a vehicle that is barely rated to make it through London’s city streets.  Months of preparation and planning will finally pa...

We are less than 70 days until launch and things are coming along nicely for Team Seemed!  

Thanks to generous support from friends and family we have raised $896 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research!  This puts us over half way to our goal of $150...

Someone asked me if I was making steady progress towards being ready for the rally.  I likened it more to trying to get ketchup out of the bottle - you wait, you tap, you eyeball it, and nothing happens.  Then suddenly, with no warning, it is rushing out of the bottle...

My older daughter works at a summer camp.  Mixed in among the campers making fire with bow drills, kids tracking animals through the underbrush, and rampaging hordes of kids dressed as elves, there are counselors wearing shirts that read ”You are doing it wrong.”...

The journey of 10,000 miles begins with figuring out just how the hell you are going to get from point A to point B. While I have been doing a lot of planning on Google Maps, the availability of reliable wifi and GPS in places such as Tajikistan (let alone Mongolia!) m...
