On the Road: Days 30, 31 & 32

Apologies on the hiatus. I have continued to struggle with cell service, time and weather. This past Saturday, I completed my first century ride in Kansas. I met up with a group of fine liked minded travelers and we have been battling a heat wave. I hope to make it into Colorado tomorrow. Day 30... Continue Reading →

On the Road: Days 27, 28 & 29

Happy 4th of July, all! Similar to most of my posts, this one is late. This is attributed to long days and lack of cell phone service, which is a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing when one wants to disconnect, a curse when you cannot pull up a weather report or map... Continue Reading →

On the Road: Day 24 

These posts are LONG overdue. This small stint of the journey thus far was a unique experience. Both in terms of mileage and hosts, unbeknownst of them.

On the Road: Days 20 through 23

On the Road: Days 17, 18 & 19

Here's a wrap up of what turned out to be three nights of camping over Memorial Day Weekend.  I had developed a distinctive musk.  Day 17: East Lexington to Troutville (50... Continue Reading →

On the Road: Days 14, 15 & 16

Day 14 - 35 miles: Charlottesville to Afton  Have breakfast with David and get some final directions to grab food and a spare tired in town before heading to the TransAmerica Trail (TAT). The TAT takes one through a small portion of VMA's campus. I check out the Rotunda and attempt to see the lawn,... Continue Reading →

On the Road: Days 12 and 13

Headed south from Sterling to Charlottesville, there is some beautiful country. Lots of hills and farm animals for each hill. The landscape is quite lush and reminds me of a slightly more rugged version of central Pennsylvania, having become intimately in touch with the  drive from Philly to Pittsburgh throughout my college career.  Day 12:...
