Disappearing act

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Well, kind of.

I'm packing up to leave for a couple weeks. Next week, I'll be pedaling my butt across the great state of Nebraska. 455 miles in 7 days. Can't wait!! It's going to be hard work, but so much fun at the same time.

This will be the first tour I'm doing that I will be staying completely in tents along the way. I did cheat and I hired the tent service. They will have my tent set up for me with an air mattress, lawn chair and fresh towels every evening. My thought was that I didn't want to have to ride all day in the rain and have to set up my tent in the rain, too. This way, I can just relax when I get there. (Looking at the weather forecast, it looks like hot weather with a slight chance of thunderstorms once in a while. I can do that!)

I'll be in the middle of nowhere most of the time. Not taking my computer at all. I'll have my smart phone, so I'll try to check in once in a while if I can.

Catch you later!

    Awesome deal! I saw the Massachusetts ride across the state had a tent service deal too...when I read that I thought: now that's the ONLY way you're going to get me camping on a bike! I am NOT going to tow all that stuff with me...ugh!

Looking forward to hearing all about it and how that tent service deal works out for you too!
