I went last July and your numbers are spot on, especially if you stay in the motels. I really enjoy Anna's riding and writing.

Thanks, that is actually a very simple explanation that helps out a bunch! I'm planning one in a coupe years. Have another one planned before that.

Thanks! The problem here is the oil price. As it goes up, everything else does. ( Very diferent when it comes down...it takes time you know)So, food, oil, tires, motels, etc . I was planning to be on the road for a month, so do the math. Basically it has doubled....and considering the overhead I have, which includes sailing the bike from PR...it gets difficult for me at this point time.

I really like the way she describes every detail, every interaction and her inner voice. It is refreshing and keeps you coming back for more!

Can't believe I just spent 90 minutes going through this RR at work. Crap, now I have to stay late and make up the time, but well worth it. Great job and I was pulling for your success! My sister lives in Charlottesvile and we use the Crozet exit to get there; so when you started with why you are doing it and where you started from (and of course the bike also gets it's props) I was hooked.

Reading this inspired me to write a report of my big trip I did in 2010. Thanks for sharing all you have. I'm staying tuned for the rest.

This RR is too good to be this far back.

If you haven't read the whole thing and subscribed, then you hate baby seals.

Amazing

I just lost most of a morning of work reading this. I'm actually kind of glad it's taking a while to get the reports out - it let me catch up even though I started out months late. Now I feel like part of the thread instead some sort of behind the curve onlooker.

looking forward to seeing the rest of you report as it comes out. Take your time, it's worth the wait, plus I need a break from the report to get stuff done!

His writing is raw compared to her eloquence, but both reports are worth reading. I'm just hoping for an update here, sometime soon. tomp dd50

Great pillion-pegs-down ride there kiddo, your brother is no doubt smiling big time. Your parents & other family must be very proud. You should be too.

A long solo trek is a very personal journey, amazing what you hear from the person, inside the helmet in this case; the ups and downs, loneliness, elation, fears, the questions and answers and the confidence and peace... and those magical moments that overtake you where it’s hard to see what’s ahead because of the sudden upwelling of emotion in your eyes. Talk about getting in touch.
Thank you for sharing!


Wondering, did u ever do a pubic write-up of your thru-hike on the AT?? I’d be very interested in that. That there is a real ‘walk in the woods’. Time of yr? w/ friend(s)? S to N? How long? ...

Keep on.

All the Best.
Cheers, dean

Anna,
Thanks for your RR. I just spent my last two days at work getting nothing done but read your report and prepare for my own journey up north. I really felt like I was with you the whole trip the way your writing pulled me in. One of the best reports I've ever read. I wish you the best and hope you have more adventures in the future. Maybe one day our paths will cross out on the road.

Great ride report! Great pics! Great commentary!

Thanks for sharing.

The Radian is a fun bike to ride, I really enjoyed mine when I took it from Toronto to New Orleans and back.
