Jim ‘N Nick’s BBQ, Birmingham AL

I’ve tried BBQ restaurants at many cities during my travels and I’ve tried many different BBQ styles (dry, wet, and all the rest). I’ve waited in a line for over 6 hours to get BBQ at a famous spot (another story). Needless to say,…

Scenes from Big Sur, California

Throughout the years, when I lived in California, I traveled to and thru Big Sur many times by all kinds of vehicles. My favorite was when riding on my motorcycle, which I’ve done numerous times. Big Sur is by far one of the most…

Hearst’s Castle, San Simeon CA
