Our last post was dated June 20, 2010.  Wow. We had returned from cycling and traveling approx. 4,500 miles from Vermont to Mexico.  We spent the summer back in Vermont, pondering our path and researching options.  To settle back in or not? We considered living in the Adirondacks, Poultney VT, or returning to Northern Vermont. […]


Here it is.  The closing post to our bicycle tour.  Are you as nervous as we are?  We’ve had a great time posting.  The trip has been a plethora of ups, downs, and in betweens. The final 300 begins now. Saturday morning June 19 2010 We bid an early morning farewell to Kevin and Yoko.  […]


June 17 2010 Our first week back to the states was spent in the comfort of our friends Kevin and Yoko’s home in Brooklyn.  We also took the opportunity to go to Manhattan for a day to connect with Bryan’s cousins Peggy and Brian. We also headed to Chelsea to visit one of our favorite […]


June 10 2010-NYC Well, after quite an ordeal at the airport – paying fees, standing in lines, wrapping up the bikes we were tired and ready to be back in the US.  Even at the airport the money was flying(pun intended) out of our pockets with hidden fees and taxes. The flight was easy and […]

We camped in Tallman State Park in Piermont, NY the night before heading to Brooklyn.  We rolled in to the state park around 7pm and found our little nest in the woods.  While we were cooking our dinner of sausage, onions, and lentils we heard the sound of something large running through the woods towards […]


Art is a rush

19Sep09

We spent 7 hours at Storm King Art Center yesterday.  It was a beautiful day in breathtaking scenery.  We meandered slowly through the park,  taking in each sculpture and marveling at how they transformed as we moved closer.  As the day went on sculptures changed with the moving sun and we still had more to […]


I’m writing from a library in Highland Falls, NY.  We’ve biked through the rain this morning but we’re drying off and looking to camp just 5 miles from here. Yesterday started out wonderful.  We departed from our campsite at Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park and headed south on Route 9.  We stopped at the Vanderbilt Mansion and […]

Thanks to everyone who’s […]
