The purpose of this blog is to pass along information, observations, photos, exploits, reflections, and comments on my cross-country bike trip.
As a way to introduce myself to those who don’t know me,
I retired some 7 years ago after 30 years of teaching, at the high school and 6th grade levels. I work now, part time, for a company that takes on the hiring process for large corporations. Primarily, I conduct phone interviews with prospective candidates.
I very much enjoy the out-of-doors, having done a lot of biking, hiking (sections of the Appalachian Trail), canoeing, fly fishing, and cross-country skiing. I also do woodworking, play chess, read, perform amateur magic, and collect antique clocks and pocket watches.
Two summers ago, I was involved in getting our local bike club going and we now have over 60 paid members (for a city of 30,000) . . . organizing weekend rides and putting on a tour.
I was able to log in over 3,000 miles last year and went on a number of century tours.
I’m also married with two adult children.
