okay so today is the start of the second epic bike trip of the season and likely the last. the plan is to head to Rice-O-Rama, enjoy the festivities, and then bounce west, again. this time going the northern route through Canadia but still on an unreliable boat anchor. the only thing going for me is that i can at least push this pile on my own. i can't imagine anyone giving a shit about what i'm doing nor is it likely that anyone reads this page at all; i know i don't. well, maybe bird will care cause its going kinda far on a rigid. regardless, if you happen to be anywhere between N. Brookfield, Ma and the front range of Montangya and see what looks like a hobo on a leaky cart, say hi and buy me a coffee.
