Summary: From Reedsport, Oregon to Yorktown, Virginia, self-contained with a group put together by Bikecentennial (TAWK525). The best summer of my life.; Self-Planned

Health Issues: Several days of sickness.

Motivation: Bikecentennial and a strong desire to see the country.

Most Challenging Aspect:Surviving the snow and cold going over Lost Trail Pass.

Favorite Experience: Watching Nancy eat 17 hot dogs in 5 minutes at a 4th of July celebration in Scott City, Kansas. This won her a $75 gift certificate for local merchants. We ate steak for dinner, Dairy Queen treats for dessert and went bowling and roller skating.

Least Favorite: Whenever it was my turn for cooking duty.

Tips: Enjoy the ride, the people you meet and the beautiful country.
