  1. I love your blog, and your trip, and that you are living your dream! I do not love you not being at our Morning Meeting, working with you, and not sitting in ridiculous unnecessary collaborations with you. I know the feeling of freedom and adventure, and can’t wait to read more! Blessings to you my sweet friend!

  3. Whenever….one word not two! That’s what I was going to say! Early bird gets the worm! We (sue, tom and Sara) are driving from Rapid City, SD to Jackson today and reading your blog aloud in the car. Question from TW: what is your resting heart rate now that you’ve biked across almost two states in 15 days? Hoping for a surprise appearance in Jackson if you can swing it!😉 happy trails, safe travels and a happy bday to Aaron! 🚲🍻😎

  4. It’s also odd that the sign says there is limited viability for 11 miles but specifies you need to be going 12 MPH to make it through in an hour.
