Welcome to my blog, a project under construction. I hope to be up and running soon. Right now I’m trying to get it setup with the help of a few friends.

When I am ready to begin blogging, I will regale you with a series of blogs about a great trip I had this last summer on my Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic Motorcycle. The trip began with my good friend, Jim “JAK” Kennemore. His wife had a fall and broke an arm necessitating his early return home.

I almost went back with him but decided that I’d keep on riding alone, something I’d never done before. It turned out to be a great time. I so enjoyed the ride that I might ride solo across the U.S. after Memorial Day. JAK and I are planning on joining other Veterans in the Run to the Wall in May. The ride takes about eleven days. We will arrive in Washington, D.C. just in time for Rolling Thunder, an enormous ride dedicated to our Missing in Action. JAK will probably ship his bike home and spend some vacation time with his wife. I hope to solo ride back to California.

Mixed in will be a progress report on my crime fiction writing. In addition to a novel, I am working on a series of short stories, and entering a few writing contests.

    George,
    Some people retire, start the new retirement job/home repairs etc and find themselves more busy. Now you add writing and riding…….you are amazing! Good Luck my friend.

    What a great idea! I can’t wait to read your future works. The motorcycle adventure also sounds exciting. You deserve only the best.

    Yes dammit! I am reading your blog. Although it seems like I’ve read it many times before. I’ve got to admit it Buddy, I had my doubts when you started this journey that you would be any good at it, but you are consistently getting much better at it…Don’t stop! As you can see above, people are “likin” it. XOXOX JAK

  14. And you thought you were an amateur writer. Are you not reading your own work? You’re doing just fine. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day. I can say that because I’ve been working on my manuscript/novel for close to four years now and have learned to improve my writing because of great people, writers like yourself and those in my critique group and edit class.

  15. I enjoyed reading your blog.

  16. Hey George–This is the first I saw your blog and your new life as a writer. You’re doing fine. Keep it up. We’ll have to talk writing some time.
