Shout Out
« on: September 09, 2021, 08:37:33 am »
I recently completed my first cross country ride from Portland, Oregon to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was a self supported solo trip.  I just wanted to say "Thank You" to those of you who post on here and those of you who gave me personal advice.  All of your advice was welcomed and most heeded.  I found that most of it was spot on.   Also a Hi to all the great people I met along the way.....Doc, Warren, Tony and many others.  It was inspirational how kind and caring most people are.  Also a shout out to ACA for their great maps, both print and digital.  I wish I would have purchased both from the start!  I truly enjoyed my visit to the ACA headquarters in Missoula!  One other thing....my home bike shop, Attitude Sports in Fond du Lac, WI was instrumental in making my journey possible with product, advice and support!  Thank you Dave, Justin, Kyle and Pat!

What a ride :))

Again.......Thank You!

Yo Mike ~ Happy for you having completed your enjoyable passage coast to coast. 
Should you at some point choose to trek north/south whereby you wend your way thru the southeastern U.S.A. ....
know that there is a free cup of coffee in your future awaiting you anytime in Georgia.

Now I'm envious!  I still have to wait 2 1/2 years before I can start a serious adventure.  Congrats, sounded like you truly had fun and had lifetime adventure, hopefully not a once in a lifetime adventure but rather one of many lifetime adventures to come.

Congrats!
You always remember your first time.

Froze......yeah, overall I had a ball! There were a few times when I thought about throwing in the towel but am glad I continued on.  I'm already looking at next year but I might change it up a bit.  I'm leaning towards a "loop" trip someplace tbd.
