- Hello, I'm Bearnard (a.k.a. Bernie) B. Behr. I travel around the United States with my human Gary, who is a professional tour guide for California Sunriders motorcycle tours. We both come from Conifer, Colorado, a nice little town in the Rocky Mountains. We travel all over the country finding beautiful places and meeting all sorts of people from around the world. I keep Gary from getting in trouble and help him keep the guests on his tours happy, not an easy job! We have a lot of fun together and see a lot of really great places, and since Gary is a professional photographer too, we have some great pictures too (usually starring yours truly). Gary also likes to write a lot, (he's a little long-winded but tells a good story) so there's usually a lot to read. It's a good thing too, I can't type very well with these paws, so I'll have Gary do most of the writing. Keep coming back and enjoy the blog. Feel free to post a comment or make suggestions (like how to keep these crazy humans in line!) and we look forward to reading them. Sincerely, Bearnard B. Behr And Gary Fleshman

What's happened since last time…
I got so see my friends on historic Route 66 again this summer…like Mr. Sam at the round barn in Arcadia, Oklahoma.
As well as my good buddy Ken Turmel, the guy who made the Postmark Artwork of Route 66. A really neat idea he had to document all the postmarks of all the towns along the Route before they all disappeared. Take a look at his website to see more about it, it is…http://www.postmarkart.com/
I also met a bunch of traveling stuffed animals along the way just like me!
I also got to meet some real nutters out on the road as well, like this guy. He was driving a lawnmower from coast to coast, from California to New York. He was doing it for a promotion for Craftsman tools, and of course their lawnmowers. But he rode the thing for about 4,000 Miles across the U.S.A., and I call Gary the silly human…hmmmm…maybe I should re-think that.
…especially when they started kissing and cuddling with me instead of him! I'm one LUCKY bear…better luck next time Gary!
We also meet this fellow at Roy's station in Amboy, California, and he's got something in common with the silly human…
He's also got a tattoo of Route 66 as well…
That's all for now…more to come in the coming days…like our annual trip to the U.K. where we are right now!

Silly humans making silly videos! We're on our way to Chicago!
So we're on our way to Chicago to begin our August Route 66 tour. The silly humans gave me the best seat in the house for the drive out to Chicago. Yep, that was me sitting in the from window watching the miles roll by on our exhausting 1200 mile road trip to get ready to start a new tour. I was holding the camera a bit while the silly human Gary was talking…and then he took it away from me. Well enough of my rambling on…Here's the video…
So that's the start…more to come. Keep checking back for more!
Hello everyone…so it's been a while since the silly human has posted anything for me… I started hibernating in December and asked him to do a couple of posts when he had the time. Well, as usual he's been a lazy bum and not done anything. His excuse is that he's been busy working for a new company and forgot…yeah, RIGHT! I woke up a few days ago, and been chewing on his heels since, to get something posted…so here's what we've been up to!
Of course we've been doing our tours…
…and doing some traveling…
…and just hanging out at home.
Let's start with the tours we did this last summer. We had a great season but only got to do Historic Route 66, but that's alright, both the silly human and I love doing it. This year he even made another music video.
So there you go…
As for this year we've been busy taking people on tours again and riding down Historic Route 66. We've had a great time as usual and we're not done yet! Also at the end of this year we will also be taking some old friends on a very special "Invitation Only" tour of the historic southwestern United States. The silly human used to live in Texas for about ten years and did a lot of motorcycle riding while he was down there. He knows of some really great roads in some very remote places…where tourists or tours almost never go! We'll be sure to take plenty of pictures while we're doing the tour and post them up on the blog so everyone can see!
So that's about all for now…but keep checking back. I've gotten the silly human feeling guilty for not posting anything in a long time and he's promised me he will be putting more on the blog from now on. Until next time remember to keep the rubber on the road and the shiny side up!
