Summary: oregon to virginia solo trip, along the 76 bikecentennial route (approx.) with individual tent and sleeping bag; Self-Planned

How did ACA Help? ACA personnel allowed me to write some reports from the ACA facility in missoula, on july 14-15, 2014. thank-you!

Health Issues: just a cold betweeen colorado and kansas, because of the strong weather condition changes: in general, i just used some light hybuprophen

Motivation: i would say phylosophical reasons. at 51, it was time to learn something new about world and about myself.

Most Challenging Aspect:loneliness, maybe. and some dry hot days in the west, and some other veeery humid in the east.

Favorite Experience: first, each one of the human contacts i had. then, the unforgettable day across mckenzie pass, in the cascade mountains

Least Favorite: maybe the best of all was to manage to do it all without any tech support, and using a 20 years old route guide (which was reversed: virginia to oregon) so i had to make left instead of right, and so...

Tips: wisdom? that's exactly what i'm looking for... as son as i'll find it, be sure i'll send you the road map to reach it!
