Unexpected Roadside Visits: World’s Largest Chest of Drawers

While in the city of High Point, NC during the Void Rally 9, one of my bonus locations was the World’s Largest Chest of Drawers. The socks dangling out of it are apparently 6 feet tall, just for size reference.

Even so, I still occasionally find myself nagged by thoughts that some things are only for other people and not for me….Conitnue Reading

Travel Lessons Learned: Just Stop and Take the Picture

You won’t regret stopping to take the picture but you will regret NOT stopping.

It’s a battle for many riders. You see something beautiful, something weird, something interesting and you saaaaaaaail right on by thinking, “I should take a picture of that.”

Well? Just do it. Stop. It’ll only take a minute. Later on when you can relive those memories in full color, you’ll be glad you did.
