It’s been a long ride so far. There have been lots of characters, adventures, long days, amazing nights, beautiful sites, and mind-blowing experiences. I feel like I’ve lived several lifetimes in the last 1,000 miles. While I have tried to give people a taste on my blog the truth is that much more has happened than I’ve been able to type up in quick paragraphs at night. I’ve given it a lot of thought and I’ve decided to write a book about my experiences.
This book is mostly for me. It is so I can read my own words and remember this adventure in the future. I’m sure it will be available for others if they wish to read it but it is mostly for me. It has taken me 1,000 miles of riding and reflection to make this decision. I’m excited about this prospect and I want to start writing now but I’m not going to, I don’t want to get lost in a project with so much still ahead of me. For now I will keep taking pictures, notes, and short blog posts, and just keep on riding.
PS Before I left I overheard a “friend” say that he didn’t think I would make it 1,000 miles without quitting, this feels kind of good in a shallow way.
