On my bike! 2005 Honda Deauville 650 - a small bike nowadays!

On my bike - a 2005 Honda Deauville 650.

I’m Brian O’Kane, a chartered accountant and founder / managing director of Oak Tree Press, a Cork, Ireland-based publishing and training company that specialises in small business issues.

This blog is to record my thoughts, activities and images from my roadtrip on Route 66 (2,448 miles from Chicago to Santa Monica, CA) in September / October 2008, fundraising for Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, Dublin – a wonderful cause!

I hope to be able to update it on the road – courtesy of my trusty iPhone and my son Kevin’s camera! Read and enjoy – and, donate to Temple Street!

PS: The “O’Kane Road” image used a header for the blog is courtesy of my daughter Niamh’s travels in New Zealand last year – thanks, Niamh.
