About the trip

Welcome to my blog! I have been writing about my travels on my bicycle and sailboat since 2007. The archives to the right list my blog entries and countries I have travelled to. I hope you enjoy them.

Now accepting donations…If you like this content and want to help me continue the adventure, feel free to donate via credit card or PayPal. Any amount will be greatly appreciated!



STATUS UPDATE May 2023: I am taking a break from biking and sailing and have gone back to working full time as a Reliability Engineer in Decatur, IL. So, no more adventures for Kev for the time being. But as Arnold said, “I’ll be back!”

From July to November, 2022, I cycled about 4000 miles on my new ebike through Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana. Below was the route I took.

The trip before that was 3 months in Mexico Oct 2021-Jan 2022. See archives for details.

From January, 2020 to May, 2021 I sailed around Florida, Bahamas and up the East coast on my 34 foot sailboat, Orion.

Below is my bike trip from 2017-2019.

Here is my route in Vietnam and Australia.

The archives to the right also include my last round the world trip in 2007-2009. Here is the route I took.

    Dear Kevin,

    I’m impressed, if you happen to ride through Houston please visit.

      Welcome Abraham. Sorry, no plans to visit Houston any time soon. I hope all is well.

    saludos Kevin. Me gusta saber de personas que están cumpliendo sus sueños. Sueños que muchos de nosotros hemos postergado por diferentes circunstancias.
    Felicidades por tus viajes.

    Oh boy, that earthquake must have been waiting for you to leave Hokkaido.

      Yes I left on Sunday and it hit on Thursday. I rode close to the epicenter apparently, about 12 km away. I remember seeing many houses built right next to tall cliffs and thinking I sure wouldn’t live there.

    Hi Hannu, well Koski is Polish, not Finnish, but on my mother’s side I do have Finnish ancestry, the surname is Kilpela.

    Hi Kevin
    We met at the KOA in Steamboat Springs, I on my non-ebike touring self-supported. In reading your posts and looking at your pics I don’t see the make and model of your bike. Can you share it? I am looking into rigs like yours for my future touring.

    Hi Dave, the bike is a Poseidon Redwood. It has an aluminum frame and is reasonably priced. Designed for tubeless tires. I have taken it on some pretty rough roads and it has held up so far.
