There was a guy who use to post here occasionally.  I can't remember his name.  He was in West Texas and traveled the US with his dog in a sidecar.  I think he called Terlingua home.  Does anybody remember him or what may have happened to him.  I think it was something like oasis of my soul.

I think Ara (Beemerchef) is in New Mexico now, here is a link to his blog, not sure if this is the last entry. His dog Spirit passed away and I remember the sidecar rig sold on Advrider a couple/few years ago.

I wish I had met Ira.  Have a feeling that sitting with and listening to him could lower one's blood pressure.  Brilliant, introspective, inspired.

A good friend of mine bought the rig - I think that was in 2018 - from Ira. Al talked to Ira quite a bit before/after the purchase. Ira was in New Mexico then and al and I had planned to go visit him and do a little carpentry work, but the plan fell through. I’ll check with al and see if two of them are still in touch.

Ran into Ara once in the late 90's at the BMW campground in Tomoka during bike week, chatted awhile, really nice guy. He was a chef in Naples before quitting and setting out on his quest/journey, had a beautiful K1200RS at the time. Photographer, writer, artist, his book is well worth the $10.00 on Amazon, here's an excerpt.
