"Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself."

    Hi Stacy. I attribute this quote to you and use it often in context to a motorcycle ride! Thanx 🙂

    I was wondering who said this quote first? It’s beautiful!.

      I give credit when I can find the source so if it isn’t listed it may have been anonymous or traced to multiple sources. Try an internet search to see what you decide!

        In the early 2000’s I was working on a guest ranch in Wyoming. I would recite this to my guest. I wrote this. I have continued to use this many times. The meaning to me is simple. I enjoy riding alone and get away from everything and everyone. That’s the middle of nowhere. So I found myself in the middle of nowhere. And because of the silence and beauty of God’s creation I find my place in the order of this creation. So, in the middle of nowhere I find myself. My name is Marvin Wild.

        Not sure of where it’s originally from, but I read it in Dakota Meyer’s memoir

    Wow! How incredible your timing is.
    In just eight hours I am heading off on a trip to the middle of nowhere, to participate in a tribute ride

    I will have a good look for myself, out there in the middle of nowhere.

      Nice! That should be quite the adventure! Hope you find yourself:)

        Hmm, I’m in a remote outback bub in the middle of nowhere and Live Like You Are Dying has just come on the Duke Box.

      Wow, that looks like an incredible journey! Do you gave a Facebook Page or anything like that that we can follow you on your journey? Best of luck on the ride!

        Hi Jenny, I personally are not savy enough for Facebook. You can follow the official Facebook page if you like.

        Dear Stacy, I hope you don’t mind me sharing the links on your page. Also, just letting you know some of your knowledge and wisdom is going into the middle of nowhere with me. Thank you!

    I love this picture, can you tell me where it was taken?

      Middle of nowhere, Bernardo, New Mexico.
