Christine's 21st Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In™ BLOG (2007)
  • Relive my first long-distance, cross-country trip with Eleanor and all of the random stops in this 5500+ mile journey!
22nd Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In™ - A Photo Retrospect (2008)
  • I didn't get to ride the motorcycle all the way to Michigan, but I did find a way to make it to Boyne Falls, MI for a quick cameo at the Ride-In and to return a very much needed journal.
23rd Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In™ BLOG (2009)
  • My trip to Kerville, TX was a wild ride that really didn't leave me lots of time to upload extensive reports during this 6000+ mile loop. But, I did take lots of photos!
  • Photos of my journey to the NE United States and the new experiences and food that I had the privilege to indulge while being up there!
25th Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In™ - Travel Itinerary (2011)
  • This was the projected route for my somewhat accelerated trip from Columbus, OH to San Jose, CA and back in 13 days. I didn't want to leave empty-handed; being able to tag Oregon, Washington, Montana, and Wisconsin on the way back would only leave five southeastern states left in my quest to hit all 48 Continental States on the same motorcycle.

26th Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In™ - Travel Reports (2012) - Part 2
  • It was short and sweet, but I did cross into two new states - Georgia and Alabama! It was a leisurely ride down US-23 and an additional 400 mile detour back up to Columbus. The Piaggio BV250 scooter reaches new heights and Eleanor earns another sticker and even more bragging rights.
My first [documented] Iron Butt SaddleSore 1000 (2010)
  • Here's the route for my very long (and very wet) ride from Columbus, OH to Spartanburg, SC for lunch and back on a sanctioned Iron Butt SaddleSore 1000. A bit more challenging than my first [unofficial] 1000 mile run from Roswell, NM to LAX Airport in 17 hours, but I managed to pull it off in a little under 21 hours despite the inclement weather.
One-Day Introduction to Canada (2010)
  • What do you do with only 24 hours and a valid passport? Go shopping for goalie equipment, stop at Niagara Falls for lunch, and circle Lake Erie while enjoying the land of hockey! Here's the first adventure into the province of Ontario.
Iron Butt SaddleSore 2000/BunBurner 1500 (2011)
  • Here's the recap from my successful SaddleSore 2000 attempt from Columbus, OH to Elko, NV en route to San Jose for the 25th Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In . Originally designed to be a BunBurner Gold 1500 (1500 miles in 24 hours or less), a few detours allowed me to accomplish an even more grueling feat.
27th Annual Women On Wheels® International Ride-In™ - Journey to Montana (2013)
Riding to the Death Valley National Park "Superbloom" (2/29-3/1/16)
  • My first long-distance, non-work related motorcycle ride in 2.5 years involved desert flowers and a few extra detours. Burro warnings and lots of photos included.
