The planning commenced on 2 January 2015. But the dreaming began long before. After delving into the world of long distance hiking I decided that I would also need to try bicycle touring at some point. Sometimes I casually invited people to my non existent event, "Bike Across America 2015!" Then 2015 came, and when I decided I was going to hike the Pacific Northwest Trail, I realized I'd have to get to the trailhead somehow.
Because I am obsessed with the idea of human powered adventure and I feel strongly that you have to be the change you want to see in the world, I decided the most logical thing was to bike to the trailhead. I think it is important to remind people that we have the choice to create less of a footprint, we have challenges that can start by stepping right out our front doors, and we can fight to save what we love even if it is in small and quite ways. Please follow along as the preparations continue and the journey begins in mid May 2015!
