Hey! I just started a new website for my music - Check it out...

Ron Marcel is my stage name (easier to spell and pronounce; Marcel is my middle name). There is an email in the "contact" section.

This isn't about the trip but I wanted to mention that I now have been given an opportunity to play at the Burning Man Central Café! (Monday, August 29th from 6:00PM until 7:20PM) Here are a few of the songs I will play (only orignal music allowed )... (note - simple, non-professional sample recordings here, only for copyright purposes)

1) "Dreaming in Color" - written for & about Iron Cowgirl Missy, who graciously took the time to teach me how to write music!

2) "Children in the House" - my second song, could be titled "My Life in 6 Minutes"

3) "Remembering Amanda" - written just before the Australia trip

4) "Enfants dans la Maison" - "Children in the House" sung in French! (On my niece's boat in Alabama...with an iPhone)

5) "Jenny" - written for my grandniece in Montreal. 1/2 in French, half in English.

6) "Family All Around" - Written in Costa Rica about how we acquire new family in our lives.

7) "Matt, Lori, Iron & me" - written to document the new engine & trans gifted to me by Matt Levatich & Lori Oelhafen of Harley.

8) "The Children" - inspired by my friends Rachel & Jesse's young daughter who reminded me what it was like to be young again! (if only for a little while)

Going home! Australia will soon be a memory, a fine one at that.

Scott McConnell & Victory Melbourne were great! Gave me the quoted price back with no hassles. Sure was good to know when I started that I wouldn't have to worry about having an expensive motorcycle I had to find a buyer for & that's precisely how that happened. The Victory CCT was flawless in its performance, took me everywhere I wanted to go and not a hint of mechanical trouble. However, I am looking forward to getting re-aquainted with my Harleys!

Thanks to everyone's interest in my travels; it made it even more fun! So now on to a couple weeks in Montreal & Quebec, followed by the amazing Burning Man! If a couple months of Outback in the summer wasn't enough to prepare me for that, nothing could.

After that, spring of 2017 will be the EU trip, starting in France in late April. I may be starting another blog, but the web address will be the same, so check back in then.
Meanwhile, don't just wonder what the world looks like, go see!!

Hey, this didn't get me!! I've been checking the radar & this looked pretty bad over there, but I didn't realize it was this bad. I was there 3 months ago, but I've been up & down the middle since then. I am now where I started, at the Rockbank Caravan Park. Got here a day early 'cause rain should be coming in tomorrow (had an hour or so of light rain this afternoon). Takin' the bike back to Melbourne Victory on Wednesday morning. Didn't see one single snake, croc or deadly spiders - doesn't mean there weren't any - if there were some, I just didn't see them.

Back to Coober Pedy for a moment (Just uploaded these pictures from the camera...)
Yep; it's another "BIG" thing. Coober Pedy is famous for its Opal mines (they're everywhere!) I might not have noticed the spelling - I saw the "manually added" comment & grinned.
