Dispatch from the Field: Bloggers on Bikes

bloggers on bikes

I met Mandy and Barb in Podunk, Oklahoma. To orient yourself, it is half way between Clinton – home of the  world-famous Route 66 Museum – and Elk City.

They’re from Pittsburgh and Detroit, respectively, and were riding Indian motorcycles all around the country. Their blog is IronHorseGypsies.com.

They said they are trying to find everyday American heroes. They write: “Amazing people are changing and saving lives in your home town.  Tell us their story and why you think Iron Horse Gypsies should travel to your town to do a feature story about your American Hero.” I think that beats throwing a dart backwards over your shoulder toward a map of the country to find your next place to ride.

They are hoping to make a living traveloguing their way around the country. (Good luck on that.) Mandy was a firefighter, and worked a forest fire on Mt Hood one summer, but thought it was insane. Of course, she also said traveling year-round by bike, tenting along the way, is insane. They’ve ridden through horrible winds and torrential rains. But on this night there was nothing but a beautiful sunset…

(what is art, is this art?)

… and moonlit sky.

  2. Hi Ken, After I finished laughing over the fact that there is actually a town named “Podunk,” I found this blog very uplifting. Thank you for another wasted minute! Cheers, Cyn
