 A Journal - Crossing America by Bicycle

For twenty years I have dreamed about riding my bicycle across America. It wasn't practical because I could not possibly get away from my job for three months and expect my job to be there when I returned! I wanted to retire early enough that I would still have the strength to fulfill my dream. I am now retired and even though I am physically capable to make this journey, I have had my sanity brought into question. I am very thankful to my dear wife for her eventual support.Ol' Blue
