ABOUT ME

ANTZ IN PANTZ

OR, MORE REALISTICALLY,

Vilmar's Stories and Photos Page

A place for bicycle touring info, travel stories, and photos

Why "Antz in Pantz?"  I wanted something that would best paint a mental picture of an individual who can't bear to sit still while at the same time enduring this condition in a somewhat productive manner.

The "antz in pantz" I've suffered from has resulted in travels around the world while in the USAF and post-retirement.

You can read about some of the post-retirement adventures here and allow your visual cortex to feast on some beautiful photos.

To make your web journey more pleasurable, (and quicker) I've severely limited the fancy icons, trick buttons, and other stuff that take up a lot of bandwidth.

Although it does not look so from this entry page, let me warn you right now, the site is large.  To look at everything and read all the journals will take you hours, possibly days.  So bookmark it and come back over and over again.

Just decide what you want to do first and click on the appropriate link to the left.

The "Photo Album" links (below) take you to pictures from my bicycle trip across the US in 1997, my bicycle trip down the Pacific Coast in 1998, my trips to Antarctica and side trips to New Zealand, Australia, and Fiji in 1999, 2000, and 2001.  Lastly, there are many photos of flowers from my garden, some family pictures and an assortment of pictures from other trips I've taken.

The "Stories" link contains journals from both my cycling trips plus my adventures south of the equator.

And the "About Me" link? Well, the subject of that one's not really rocket science, is it?

In all of my adnventures abroad i was not alone, i had my dog "Antzi" with me at all times. You may wonder how could i be sure that she would not get lost. It is simple i got myself a wireless dog fence and i never felt unsafe again. I knew where she was at all times.

If you have any questions dont hesitate to contact me. i am more than happy to answer questions from fans
