  • Riding Across America

    Holy crap! I rode my motorcycle across America this summer!! I'm not sure how to begin talking about it, except to say that it took 36 days and some 5,000+ miles and was the most fun, scary, challenging, and thrilling experience of my life. There were many moments where I spontaneously yelled "Wahooo!" out of my helmet or laugh out loud; overcome by the beautiful scenery we rode past or the pure joy of being out on the open road, free.

    In the rosy glow of memory the trip was only wonderful and filled with the thrill of adventure; but when I try to remember the hard parts I know that each day was also filled with body aches, dehydration, fatigue, and uncertainty. To sit alone on a bike with your thoughts for that many hours and be tested by the rains of Pennsylvania, the prairie winds of Wyoming, or the baking heat of Utah was definitely intense at times. 

    I set out riding from New York to San Francisco looking for some sort of answer about how best to live my life, but came away with more questions than answers. I do know, however, that I am stronger because of the experience and that I wouldn't hesitate to do it again in a heartbeat.
