Wedding Break


I've decided to take a break from my ride to attend my cousin Kevin's wedding in Puerto Rico. I'm flying standby so it's not certain that I'll make it. If I do, then I should be back on the Transamerica Trail in about one week. If I don't make it on a flight, then I'll be back sooner. So if you're a regular reader please check back in a few days. Regardless, I will be back to tackle my last three states. One additional benefit of taking this break from the Tetons and Yellowstone over the week of July 4th -- I'm greatly reducing the risk of being flattened by an RV driver distracted by the sight of moose, elk, or grizzlies.

well done rider, well done. looks like you're about 10 days or so ahead of where you wanted to be.

and i doubt you've heard, but as a biker i wouldn't make light of grizzlies. apparently grizzlies don't take kindly to your types...

enjoy the break, looking forward to the end of the journey.

Wow; looks like you're almost there! I hope to make it out to Chicago sometime this fall, so hopefully I can hear more about the trip in person soon. Bike safely until then!

Excellent journal! Very well written. I biked the transam last year (www.crazyguyonabike.com/ryan779). Well anyway, keep it up. The last 3 states are amazing. Especially Oregon.
