Welcome to SBH
Thanks for stopping by the bear cave and checking it out. Being serious all the time is un-bear-able, so we have added a great comic strip at the bottom of page for your enjoyment. Please feel free to leave your thoughts,or shoot us an e-mail with the link to the right. We'd love to hear from all the creatures in the forest.

Well hello everyone! Its been sometime since we posted here.  All of the adventure stuff has been moved to its own place,  www.roaddogdsa.com where you can follow along on our adventures.  We aslo have a Face Book, Twitter, and spot tracker pages where we post adventure through tweets, pictures, and a map of where we are. We will of course post some stuff here but the main stuff will be at Road Dog.  Our 2013 season is coming up and we will be heading back to Canada!

As for Sleepy Bear Hollow, well we will be writing more again.  We are in the process of writing a book through a company called Round Table Companies (RTC) and will post stuff about the book as it is available.  Thanks for all the support and rest assured that we are back!!!!

Next Adventure is coming soon

We will be heading back into the Utah Desert this Summer.  Currently the departure date is set for June 10.  We will be riding bigger bikes this time as the year has provided BMW 1200GSA's to prowl around on.  It is also looking like we will have some new riders joining us as we head out to find some "new to us" place.  Stay tuned!

BT11-Day 7

Hello everyone,
We're finally back in civilization. We've been in the mountains for a couple of days away from cell phones and wi-fi. That hurt Mark more than me, but he survived. Anyway, we've had a great couple of days. We met Mark's brother from another continent and they hit it off just great. Christian is on a 2 year motorcycle trek all over the globe by himself. He pulled up to us in Hinton, Alberta on his BMW 1200 GSA (our next bikes) and we immediately connected. He's from Chile and has been on the road for 5 months already. He started in Miami and is heading for Los Angeles to take a plane ride with his bike to Australia. He'll then go to Southeast Asia and through Europe to London. We rode with him for about an hour and exchanged information to follow his trek for the next year and a half. He's on this trek due to recent deaths in his family, including a son, and made it a priority in his life. He has all the same gadgets as Mark and they were like two peas in a pod.  He taught Mark a few tricks of the touring motorcycle video trade and it should help make our trips a little quicker. Thank goodness!
We had a great ride to Banff and saw the bluest lakes that exist with beautiful glaciers in the background. Once we made it to Banff we toured the castle and grabbed a quick bite to eat. Then the deluge hit. Needless to say we're staying in Banff for the night. Tremendous lightning/thunder storms hit the town and we're certainly glad we weren't on the road when it hit. The forecast is a little better for tomorrow and we'll probably push back to Idaho on a slow roll.
This part of Canada is to die for. Anyone looking to see glaciers and lakes that have existed for hundreds of centuries need to come here. I've been to several national parks in the U.S. but this one is non-stop awe-inspiring. Even the sporadic rain hasn't dampened the experience. I just wish the mosquitoes would go away. We've seen 2 black bears and 2 male elks with large racks on the side of the road. Mark claims I almost ran over one of the bears but he was exaggerating. I admit I was admiring the  mountains and didn't see it as quickly as Mark did, but I did not get as close as Mark says I did. He crossed the road right in front of me and didn't even look at me.
I hope you enjoy the photos that he just posted. It does not even close to cover what we've seen though.

BT11-7 Pics


The start of a new week on the tour. We slightly altered the route to exclude Dawson Creek though. Along our travels we have met a lot of people that all asked why we were going there? Apparently, there is nothing to see there. So we didn't go. We're in Hinton this evening and there's nothing to do here either. But we're within striking distance of Jasper and then it's going to get interesting. We expect some inclement weather but nothing as bad as last week.
We met a friend in Edmonton yesterday and did some off-roading near a lake. The mud was a challenge but the bikes took the punishment and persevered.  But apparently Mark didn't. He passed out last night with his clothes on and on top of the blankets. He stayed that way almost all night. The long hours in the saddle and the road miles are apparently catching up to him.  The 5-Hour Energy shots didn't even help.

More Pics


We've completed our first week of this trip and it has flown by. Last night we slept at Doug and Jan's house in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. We drove through Calgary and got a peak at the Calgary Stampede event but did not enter. Just another big town, but it's clean and has a pretty back drop. Yesterday's ride was pretty but boring compared to the other days. Long, straight roads and nothing but farms.  The mosquitos make for quick outdoor bathroom breaks in the woods. They go into swarm attack mode, and then there's the deer flies. Thank goodness for Doug and Jan's house. Camping would not have been an option. 
We started out yesterday inside Canada's portion of Glacier National Park. There's a beautiful old hotel that was built in 1928 by the railroad and it's majestic as it sits on top of a bluff overlooking the lake. The lake needed to be explored but we'll save that for another trip. I highly recommend it for exploration as there are great hiking trails and tributary streams that go on for miles. Can't beat the glaciers either. Just bring Bear-Away spray! Candrell Lake has a large population of Grizzlies and one was seen on a trail near the visitor center just 2 days before we were there.
