May 17-26, 2012


I arrived home from the trip safe and sound (or mostly sound!) on Sunday morning, May 27th. In all, I rode 10, 962 miles in 9.5 days (228 hours), completing visits to all 49 states plus DC, 10 consecutive 1000+ mile days, and a run from Canada crossing the border at Osoyoos, BC) to Mexico (to San Luis) in under 24 hours. Goals accomplished!
