On the Road to Santa Fe

I’m off for my annual Santa Fe Workshops class, so for the next couple of weeks, postings for PhotoshopNews will come when and where I can find high-speed internet access while on the road.

I know where most of the Starbucks are between Chicago and Santa Fe, so I should be able to access the net from time to time. If I have the time, I’ll post updates about the trip and the class, but travel by bike is time consuming so I don’t know how much posting I’ll be able to do.

In case you’re interested, the bike is a 1996 R1100 GS BMW (yes, they make bikes too). I’ve currently got a little over 75,000 miles on it-a lot of miles back and forth from Chicago to Santa Fe. The 17″ G4 laptop goes in the right side saddle bag, and the camera & lenses have a case that goes on the back. The radar detector goes on top of the tank bag :~)

I generally do 500-600 miles per day-although with a tail wind and no radar traps, I’ve been known to make over 800 miles in a day.

I ride pretty quick, but with the state of mind that everybody is out to get me…(more often than not, they are) and I ride with good equipment & gear.

My wife will be coming to meet me next week. She rides her F650 BMW down mid-week–she can’t think of anything worse than hanging around while I teach Photoshop. We should be back around Sept 22nd.

So, if you see me riding, honk while I pass you…

:~)

    OK, Jeff, rub it in. Not only do you get to ride to Santa Fe on the best road machine there is, you get to make pictures and post them so we can all drool over your excellent adventure. For an old geezer like you (calm yourself, I’m older), 600 plus miles a day qualifies for an Iron Butt in my book. Best wishes on your journey.

    Jeff,

    I’ll be in Santa Fe on the 15th. Will be taking a workshop at the SFWS. If you are still looking for bandwidth that week, give me a call. I have high speed at my house there.

    He also gets to spend the night with Brisket the Whippit, Zia the Wolf and Mela the Border Collie! Becky will be jealous.
