Well, I'll be on the road in about 7 hours. I think...think I have everything packed. I am a neurotic mess thinking I forgot something when we go away on a weekend trip to New Orleans or something. This is overload... this is a week. This is throwing a bicycle and camping into the mix. I only hope I don't forget anything. Like my bike.
I'll be making another post in a minute which I think I'll be able to pin to the top. I am not bringing my laptop or iPad, only my phone. That being said, I am going to spend a whole lot of time in rural Iowa, where "cell service" may not be a phrase uttered quite often, especially with thousands of extra cell phones attacking the occasional tower. I will try to update as much as I can - I just don't know the delivery system. I'd like to take a lot of pics, so I really hope Instagram works. The Squarespace iPhone app is pretty lackluster, so there won't be much flash to any posts I put here. I'm not even sure I can share from here to the Pedal Another Mile Facebook page... did I mention I did not anticipate how fast this was coming? I spent 2100 miles, hundreds of hours, on my bike getting ready for this week... I let a few things online fall to the wayside. I'll do what I can, and we may even experiment along the way. I think my GPS unit will actually broadcast where I am (if there is cell service). Maybe I'll try and figure that shit out on the long bus ride tomorrow.
So I will make a pinned post now, with links that will stay up all week, and then the next time I post will be from Iowa.
Good night all!
