Tomorrow morning I board the Amtrak train for Yorktown, Virginia, bike in box, bags in hand, harboring dreams of riding back across America to Astoria, OR. What on earth am I doing?! Am I going to make it? Will I even enjoy it? What will I eat? Where will I sleep? Who will I talk to? Soon we will see. It's nearly time to explore in a way I've never experienced, and the open road eagerly awaits me...
On another note, because nothing says "bad-ass TransAmerica bike tour" like the pink amazingness you see to your left, just know it was really difficult to choose between buying this sweet little pink BMX single speed and riding my matte black, brand new, sexy, sleek, Surly Long Haul Trucker touring machine. I mean, what's more important..solid comfort, or having everyone be jealous because you're on a pink BMX tallboy?!
See ya down the road. :)
