    My Big Adventure

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I just started a journal on crazyguyonabike.com.

    Come on over and have a look at http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/journ...pringfever2005

    I probably won't reply to any messages while I'm on the road - I'll only be gone for a week and I have no idea what my internet access will be like. Still, I'll try to keep the journal updated on the road if anyone wants to follow along.

    I'll have DH put in my milage for bikejournal, too. That should be interesting.

    I saw your journal earlier today - thanks for letting us know it's yours! It's fun to follow along with people that you know, so it's good to be able to connect your user id here with your name on crazyguyonabike.

    Happy travels!

    Please journal every little thing, even if you have to post it to crazyguy later - I'm dying of curiosity!

    Be careful with yourself out there, adventurer!

    Thanks, guys

    Gosh, what support!

    And, yes, I'm planning on being very wordy in the journal. I just don't know when to shut up.

    Tomorrow William is going to the LBS for a tune-up/check-up, I'm buying some Halt! (not in the least interested in a broken pelvis - the busted tailbone was quite enough thankyouverymuch), and DH & I will be generally running around town getting stuff ready. Um, we should also look into the truck we're going to haul Daughter's stuff in, too, come to think of it.

    Other than that, I'm ready. Except, of course, doing the anti-rain/wind dances. But that's a constant.

    Better weather coming to the Midwest

    MoB, it looks like a better forcast for next week, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that the trend continues. Our last date of frost here in the Chicago area is May 15 but it's been so cold at night (30's) really across the entire Midwest and even into the eastern US that it's hard to believe two weeks will make that change. I feel ashamed that I haven't wanted to commute to work this week when I think about your big trip. We'll all be riding along with you in spirit!!

    Whoopeeeee!

    We're leaving in a few hours for MN. I'm pretty sure I'm all packed, which of course means that I'm overpacked.

    Weather looks like it will be pretty nice riding weather. Highs up to 75 or so, some rain possible, but not probable. I think I can live with that.

    Watch for me on Crazy Guy!

    Best of wishes! Because of you, I'm back reading a bunch of bikalogues thinking of you. May you find new friends in your adventure.

    Update

    I just checked the blog. Looks like Mom and family completed all the moving on Friday and she expected to start riding Saturday but no posts from the road yet.

    Mom, if you're out there! We're out there pushing you along! If you turn and head west far enough, Yellow has some carrot cake.
