I'm not too far off from completing this trip in 3 months time, just as I thought but, I'm feeling the change of seasons in these cool evenings and frigid mornings. I'm headed to the land of perpetual Summer, California; at least that's how I imagine it in my head.
My mindset right now is just to plow through these next couple weeks to finish this cross-country adventure so I can start heading South for the Winter. I've also got myself all jazzed up about getting to Portland; I can't wait to see my friend, Ben who I haven't seen since college.
I've been wanting to visit Portland for years now but, the most exciting thing that makes me want to put the pedal to the metal is I want to get a new bike when I get there, a custom-built touring bike so I can keep this ridiculous journey going in style and comfort. But I'm still hundreds of miles away.
