Warning: apologetic reflection incoming.
Over the past couple weeks, I haven’t nearly as been proactive about posting stories about my travels as I thought I would be and I apologize for that. I set a very high bar for myself early on and continually struggled to find the time needed produce posts that were personally satisfactory while seeing the sights, eating, sleeping, resting, talking with locals, interacting with hosts, planning my travels, and of course, biking each and every day.
That said, I’ve decided to begin writing in short-form (e.g. using bullets to summarize the day’s notable occurrences followed by a gallery of photos) instead of long-form (full-on paragraphs with in-line photos throughout) for all future posts.
I hope this change will provide to be a good medium between managing to produce long-form posts every couple of days (and likely forgetting about certain events in the process) and not posting at all.
Thanks for your patience and, for those of you who are in the States, I hope you all you all had a lovely 4th of July. 🙂
Here’s to actually documenting this trip once again!
Quick Trip Update: Today marks my 40th day on the road. As mentioned before, my cousin, Frank, joined me a little over a week ago and, after having a downright epic ride through Badlands National Park today, we are now residing in a church in Wall, South Dakota, for the night.
Frank is very active on Instagram and posts frequent updates about the trip from his own perspective. Feel free to follow him on Instagram at @WildeAcrossAmerica
Also, Frank and I had a nasty collision a day ago, but fortunately, we both cycled away with functional bikes and no major injuries. I (amazingly) only ended up with some small cuts on various parts of my body and a small gash on my chin.
All I can say is… helmets, gloves, and long sleeves are amazing.
Until next time!
