Go local Go epic Go often

Welcome to Sidetrak'n.  

Wouldn't you love to take an epic journey to some forgotten place and try to unravel the story? What about enjoying majestic scenery that you would see in a magazine?  Well, that's what this project is all about except we are going to do it locally.  Recently I came to the realization that all of the exotic places were someone's backyard. Did they see it as exotic?  This project is dedicated to exotic, epic stories and adventures in our own back yard.   

It doesn't have to be dangerous or expensive.  It doesn't have to cost anything.  It is simply about hearing the story that is hidden in the noise of life racing around us.  Take a moment to stop at the scenic overlook, visit the historic place and chat with the waitress and find a story.  If it leads you to a clue for another story, then you are truly Sidetrak'n.  

While I will be using a motorcycle as a means to get there, it doesn't mean this is solely a "motorcycle project."   Make no mistake, this can be done on foot, via car or even on-line.  After all... you're here aren't you?  

Go find a story in your backyard.  Meet the people. Tell the story.   

One thing for sure; time marches on indifferent to us.  Don't let your time be disposable.  When you get off course find the story in the detour. It is always there if we take the time to see.   --jp

Not if you have the right attitudes.  Its having the right attitudes that's hard.”
