Route 66--Introduction

 On September 10, 2005, a short article appeared in the "Garland Neighbors" section of "The Dallas Morning News".

A Rider That Writes

One man, one motorcycle, one month, and ten thousand miles. Last summer Daniel Meyer packed up his Valkyrie motorcycle, grabbed some cash and a handful of credit cards, and followed his dream. His dream was to ride to Alaska.

His journey took the Texas native though thirteen states and four Canadian Provinces. Along the way he encountered incredible thunderstorms, hail, winds, sleet, and raging forest fires. This summer he published a book about his life-changing journey. “Life Is a Road, Ride It Hard!” is the third book the Garland resident has published in the “Life Is a Road” series and it chronicles the experiences and the people found along his journey.

“I was determined to write about the ride, the experience, the people, and the magic I encountered,” he says looking off into the distance, “Stories about the ‘why’, not just about the ‘where’.”  Often deep and introspective, Daniel’s stories reach out to the reader on an emotional level.

What’s next for the 300-pound, blue-eyed Texan? Well, he’s packing up his motorcycle again. Saturday he’s departing for twenty-one days on the road.  He’s headed for California, “Via Wisconsin,” he says with a smile.


My Blog Entry

On the road...

Release, relief, renewal. Vague demands from my soul. Grumblings from the Dark Side of the Man.

Restlessness. Dreams. A burning hunger for experience. The need to see!

The need to fly.

It’s time to ride.

I’m headed out for 22 days on the road, leaving Saturday morning (9/3). I’m headed for Yosemite...of course I’m doing it via Wisconsin.

Texas to California...via Wisconsin. Yeah, well, I never could color inside the lines either.

Assuming the gas and the credit cards hold out, other plans include parts of Route 66, some time in the mountains of New Mexico and southern Colorado, and a visit to friends in Los Angles. I expect to be at Yosemite for the Valkyrie Riders’s event Friday September 16th and Saturday, September 17th.

After that, who knows? I’ll have a week to find my way home. I guess it depends on the whims of my soul...and how well my credit cards have held out.

Flying. Free. Alive.

I’ll see you on the road!

Daniel Meyer
