I met a transcontinental cyclist at a hostel in Troutdale, VA. He is a very sweet young man from Holland whom is here on a 3 month visa to complete the trail from VA to CA. It is an Appalacian Trail Hiking initiation of sorts to get a "trail name". Mine is "HeartRock" because I carried a 5lb heart-shaped rock with me until I could take it home
He inquired about all the hikers odd names and how they came by them. I decided that since he is on a trail of his own he deserved a trail name as well! The name, "TourDeHolland", seemed fitting since he is from Holland and is a cyclist that compared to me could be in the Tour de France
This entire message is all in hopes that either he or someone else on this forum will read this and let me know where he is on his trek and/or if he has completed the transcontinental task! I would love to get in contact with him and hear about his journey! Thank you in advance for looking out for my TourDeHolland!!!!
