"Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam...." Dr. Brewster Higley

I had a unique opportunity this past week. I toured Yellowstone National Park on a motorcycle. It was a curious adventure in all sorts of ways. Riding around inside a giant caldera is interesting enough, but throw in elk, buffalo, bears, and a curious coyote, and the days become unforgettable. What worried me the most was not a super eruption that is 40,000 years overdue or wild beasts. The thing that worried me the most was the people driving cars.

You become acutely aware of how vulnerable you are on a 750 pound motorcycle and the car behind you weight over 3000 pounds and that driver is paying more attention to the view of the valley than he is of you.
Pay attention out there. Stop texting and reading emails. Turn your phone off and pay attention to all that is going on around you. It is the least you can do.
