How did ACA Help? BikeCentennial tawb612

Motivation: My brother and a school teacher.

Most Challenging Aspect:Physically the mountains. Mentally the heat and flat of the midwest Emotionally the time away from my family

Favorite Experience: So many beautiful rivers, mountain passes, memories of the group (tawb612) and people. Wish I took more pictures.

Least Favorite: Busting a crank while off roading in Yellowstone with full gear and getting lost. 3 of us pushed our road bikes over and under so many trees and along rutted trails it wasn't funny.

Tips: Enjoy each and every day. Live in the moment. Love life and be open and positive. The reward is worth it.
