I had all sorts of clever titles for the final SOS blog, but Death Wish Part 4 sounded a little dark for the final blog. I didn’t sleep well Tuesday night in Exeter, NH. I thought about a good friend of mine, who biked from Anchorage to Tijuana and crashed 7 miles from the Mexican… Continue reading DONE!!
There was some good stuff and I’m doing laundry so I decided to throw another nonsensical bunch of b.s together. As I was climbing (something I’ve done pretty much non-stop since hitting New York State) I saw three cute black bear cubs scampering across the road. Wow, isn’t this great…wait a minute dumbass, three cubs… Continue reading Cubs, Nuns and Rednecks

I still see lots of farmland and can report that the corn and soybeans look pretty good, but probably need some rain. I’ve also had to navigate Lansing, Jackson and Toledo (today). As… Continue reading Lost in the land of Mudhens and Tony Paco’s
Yes, I know that isn’t the proper spelling, but I made it to Lansing, well sort of–Dewitt actually, hence the spelling. I’m trying to see if I can rival the New York tabloids. Anyway, crossed the bridge the other day via truck since you cannot ride a bike on the Mackinac Bridge. Good thing too,… Continue reading Capitol Gains
