My recent visit to Kansas reminded me of my final days of my two month, Boston to Fort Collins bike tour in 2005 as we drove back out along US 34 and 36 on our way to Manhattan, Kansas from Fort Collins.
On that tour, I had planned to ride from Boston to Montreal to New York City. From New York, I was to head down the mountains to north Georgia finishing in Atlanta and flying back to Colorado from there.
As often happens on a bike tour, plans get drastically changed. Once I reached Washington D.C., I started feeling that I wanted to ride back home instead of to Atlanta. I ended up changing my plans and rode back to Colorado from D.C. instead.
The journal I kept while on that trip is pretty entertaining, I think. I tried to capture the essence of each day on the bike by writing about the day in my tent each night before heading off to sleep. I would then transcribe my entry into an online journal on CrazyGuyOnABike.com the next day when I was able to find a public library.
Read through a few days or more if you can. Let me know what you think.
