Bio: I have been a cyclist since 1986 having given up running due to injuries. Began touring with my buddy Dave in 1994 and since then have done numerous tours of 2 days to a week and longer. In 2005 after my place of employment was wiped out due to Hurricane's Frances and Jeanne I did the Southern Tier documented here on this website. I retired in 2011 and did part of the TransAm documented here. Also documented on CGOAB are my tours of the Natchez Trace, Part of the Atlantic Coast, Blue Ridge Parkway and the Katy Trail with my wife. We have 4 children and 5 grandchildren. I cannot get any of them interested in riding bicycles though.

I am happy to say after this years tour into Montana we got an offer on our home in Tennessee and have moved back to our home state of Florida. I enjoyed Tennessee but Florida is my home and where most of my children and grandchildren reside.
