Heidi Around the World

AROUND THE GLOBE – Every once in while, an opportunity to meet someone who inspires, motivates, and awes comes along. Someone living an extraordinary life. The kind of person you don’t run across every day. Opportunities like that are great, especially if you don’t miss them like I did. I’m still kicking myself. Here’s why… Last month, during a…

Anya and Ashmore of Babes Ride Out

Road Encounter with the Babes

MORONGO VALLEY, CA – Social media is an odd thing. I’ve made tons of virtual friends through Instagram and Facebook, many I’ve never met, some I’ve had only a brief encounter with, but somehow, I feel a part of their lives, you know? Take for example the Babes behind Babes Ride Out (an all-girl annual motorcycle campout). I’ve…

48 ford f1 with Flathead

Bondorella’s Flathead

My Feller has a saying: “Nobody ever listens to old Brian!” In this case? He was right. I should have listened. When I bought my ’48 Ford in 2006, the truck had a barely running mid-50s OHV6–not the coolest motor. For Christmas that same year, Brian surprised me with a flathead, an early 50s Mercury…

BIG BEAR, CA –It’s rare to meet a six-year-old with as many experiences notched in her belt as my pal Valentina. Running with dinosaurs.  Robbing bees with grandpa.    Racing tricycles.   Wrangling airplanes.  Off-roading with her dad. Once, when she was four, she even went on an eleven day, mostly dirt trek from Colorado to…

The Great Race Comes Through Winslow!

  WINSLOW, AZ – It’s one thing to admire a beautiful car at a show, quite another to watch one drive through a charming old town like Winslow, Arizona and know this particular classic isn’t going three miles to a local root beer stand, but from one end of the country to the other. We got lucky…

The Michigan Jeep Girl!

WARREN, MICHIGAN – Everyone should own a Jeep once in their life. It should be mandatory, like elementary school, or driver’s licenses. Quite simply, a Jeep is a Jeep. There’s no mistaking one on the road. And driving one? You have to experience being behind the wheel to understand. For Krista Kunkel, aka the Michigan Jeep…
