a vacation of firsts

first time visiting wisonsin.
first time camping alone.
first time going on a bike tour alone.
first time vacationing alone.
first time heading to a place where i know nobody.
first time i’m going to have to put my bicycle together by myself.
first time i’m planning the logistics, from beginning to end.

i’m nervous and excited to do this trip, which i have deemed my spirit quest. this is going to be a big trip for me, since i will not have the loving and logistic filled embrace of all of the planning that kasy would always do for any of our bike tours. after years of watching him do the heavy lift of logistic planning, i know that i know what to do and i know that i am capable. this is the first time i will force my own hand in doing it all myself.

this is growth.
this is summer vacation.
this is going to be awesome.

see you in a couple of weeks!

  1. Wisconsin is a beautiful, beautiful place. Some of the best the Midwest has to offer. They also don’t use gravel for roads, it’s all paved, which makes it a great place to get lost on back roads (and train for road racing). Enjoy your trip, challenging yourself to grow, and the peaceful solitude. I hope you encounter all you hope to and more.
