Hi, As you would probably guess I am Jason Quinitn, and I run this one man show, but regularly collaborate with many others. I am a designer, developer, adventurer currently based out of Center City Philadelphia. I am always looking for more things to get my hands into, mainly web, identity, and community building.
Don't hesitate to reach me.

During the winter of 06 i read about a technique called HDR photography. Later in the summer of 07 while riding X-country I decided to take a series of photos practicing these techniques. You can view the set on my flickr account.

Alright folks thats all I have got..

I arrived back in to Philly in early Oct. Needless today Myself and cycle included needed a break. I took the entire trip without a working speedometer so im guessing roughly 12k miles around trip, with simple gmap estimates.

The bike held up well but does need some tlc, so for the first time i retired the bike early in the season and put it to rest at my fathers for cleaning maintenance.


Now 3 months later I am going stir crazy without out and now that i am gainfully employed again Ill get it out on the streets sooner than later.

I want to take one last chance to thank board members
Local phillians
TonyJuliano- for tire mounting, wiring “help”, route planning, and encouragement
Donniej- My svs probably would have been beyond broke well before this trip without him.
Morganb- For extend loan of camping equipment, and tools.. Ill get that back to you soon
Dougz,Ronin01r1, RSP- General cheer leading

While on the trip
Svroom13 and her extended family.. Nuff, said she provided more support and encouragement every leg of the way.. and provided a healthy shot of confidence, and a comfortable couch.

DMRemder and Thor310 for meeting up and showing me a grand old time.
Thor I will be back to party it up more.
D hit me up if your in phl again.

And
Ranger01, TLC4diving, tuna, boom, New, OG, harsh, and other chatters for the company on some nights. Maybe we can all meet in person when i get to take my next trip.

After leaving boulder that morning I was really at a split decision on what direction to take next. I mostly wanted to just make a direct shot home, but part of me also wanted to take one last detour to deals gap at the TN/ NC border, and when push came to shove i still headed south.

In the past I have made several painfully failed attempts to ride the dragon, and i felt this trip could not be complete without a short visit at last.

The commuting from this part out was not really all that enjoyable. I stopped Saint Louise Missouri and continued on.

Passing through Kansas seemed to take forever. I was riding directly into the warm sun through the freshly harvested cornfields for what felt like an eternity. Nothing really worth documenting. I was just trying to make it to the gap

One more night of rogue camping at a KAO and a stern talking to from Kansas highway patrol and i Finally arrived.


Any one else Remember that tank… SVR history lesson

Here i ham it up for the cover of Killboy

Why its called the smoky mountains

Added a little dragon to the front sticker collection for extra flare.

After camping one night at Fontana village. I know its time to make one final push for home. I pack up early, make to more runs fully loaded up the dragon, and do mostly super slab to get home. At roughly 7oo miles, this wasn’t the longest run I’ve taken in a day by a long shot, but it seemed to take the longest, I was anxious eager to retire off the bike for a bit.
Over all nothing to exciting on the route home, other than some one not securely fasting a cycle on a trailer which sent the cycle tumbling down the road.

I just plugged along listening to my ipod shuffle on the final stretch and day dreaming about all the things I need to do when i return, and relieving some good memories already.

I finally make it to my Apt at around 9pm exhausted and hungry, my roommates greeted me with a warm welcome. I am sure I was a site to see and a handful to take in cause i was rather ecstatics. At this point I know I couldn’t have had the determination, and willingness to commit such a nut job adventure with out the support of my friends and family. Also the few that called me crazy only added to the determination.

In all it has been an eye opening experience, and given quite a bit of accomplishment. However I am already scheming on other half baked adventures, and ways to finance them. That weekend we Celebrated my birthday with a good turn out of friends, and my roommates graciously printed several pix from this blog and hung them on the walls as my b-day gift. I couldn’t be a luckier person.

I left the grand Canyon that morning and continued on secondary highways until i passed through the four Corners

I approached Denver from the south. Reaching my friend Dave’s house by late evening. The riding getting to the Mile high city was Brisk, curvy and white knuckled as i rider around steep hills, river rapids and through countless tunnels. Drastic changes of elevation made the weather quite nippy. I made It to daves later than i anticipated, we at dinner at the thunderbird. I spent the next day riding around boulder and checking out the local sites alone.
