This blog is an eclectic road journal, my account, with pictures and video, of the 30th Anniversary Cross-Country bike trip organized by Adventure Cycling. Forty-one riders started in Seattle on June 22, 2006, and ended in Washington, DC, on August 8. Along the way, we rode through gloriously scenic mountains, made new friends, and experienced directly how vast and diverse our country really is. Sadly, we also had tragedy when one of our group was killed in a car accident, and faced brutally difficult riding in record high temperatures in parts of South Dakota. I wrote the blog so that I could keep track of the long days we spent on our bikes. As someone who turned 70 last January, I wanted to show that older persons can still engage in vigorous activities. And as a retired professional journlist, I wrote the daily accounts for fun and because I had another opportunity to tell good stories. I hope readers will have as much fun reading this journal as I had writing it.Start from the first entry
