Hey there AntiHero,
Great read! You completed something that I was so close to being able to do myself, even got the OK from my wife to do so until doing the "right thing" backfired and turned our lives upside down (see http://vmsfan.blogspot.com/2012/09/t...eing-hero.html
But reading this and seeing the pics, gives hope and inspiration that once I have recovered...to start back on track to completing my dream...like you - a solo round robin of the USA by bike.
It is the opportunity to see the good in what others can and will do for the benefit of others and to taste the raw beauty of what our great nation has hidden.
If you do decide to hit up a Pacific NW trip, let me kow. While I still have a spare room, it can be yours plus anything you may want to see or do here, I could point you in a direction.
Definately need to get a copy of your book.
