    Enjoyed reading about your excursion so far. Impressed with how you have handled the heat, rain and dog attack. Keep on pedaling, and updating the blog.

  8. Hi Aaron,
    Mike passed on your blog details in his posts.
    I did the same AC tour last year, and it is fascinating to see it through other peoples eyes.

    Finding the account of your experience simultaneously daunting, impressive and inspiring. Enjoying the gradual compilation of "Abandoned America".

    2,000 miles and halfway there - and great to see how excited you are for what lies ahead. Any fatigue seems to be certainly outweighed by the thrill of the experience and meeting the challenge of the next day. Keep on pedaling!

    1. Hey Dan, the trip is indeed going great, and I don't even really feel fatigue anymore. We had a long 9 day run without a break, and while day 7 was tough, days 8 and 9 were actually pretty good. I'm on the home stretch now, and it just keeps getting better. Thanks a lot for the notes and for following along! Hope you're having a great summer. Please say hello to the folks at Anexinet for me.

    Congrats on making it across the Great Divide - another significant accomplishment on your journey. Keep enjoying the sights and experiences as you start to pedal down the home stretch!

  15. Hi Aaron, I found a link to your blog on ACA's Bike Bits. I started touring with them 2 yrs ago in Vermont & NH. Then last year I did the Big Bend tour. Working up to the TransAm. I hooked up with the TA group last year when they had their layover in Eminence, MO (I live in Columbia). I wanted to spend time with them trying to figure out if this was something I wanted to tackle. Came away from that encounter ready to go. Your blog has given me even more encouragement. I am only mid way through the May posts but, one thing I find lacking is your references to the other riders---names, background, their feeback on the rides, etc. Good luck.

    1. I was impatient for news of the other riders. I have caught up on all your posts and found your list of the other riders. Thank you. Another thing that I am curious about is gear---bikes, panniers vs. trailers,etc. What did you bring that you wish you hadn't & vice versa. I ride a Trek 520 & pull a trailer. I saw one quick mention that you have aero bars. In my short touring career I have not seen another bike with them other than mine.

  16. I found your blog from the Biking Bits newsletter. I've considered the TA, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Work keeps getting in the way! Your blogs are very descriptive and enjoyable--thanks for sharing!

    Your spirit of Carpe Diem certainly comes across to those of us observing your journey through the blog. Whether biking across the country or pursuing other endeavors, may we all "seize the day" in our lives and make those special things happen. Thanks for continuing to share your journey.

    A week to go and still going strong towards an incredible accomplishment that most of us can only imagine. Won't be long now until that front tire gets wet in the Pacific!
