It's hard to believe that after months of preparation, the time has come to begin. I will start the ride on Friday, June 15th, 2018 from Chicago and hope to be in Santa Monica July 20th give or take a day or two. Day one of riding will be a short distance to give time for a celebratory send-off with my family and time to deal with Chicago traffic. I will update Friday evening with some photos and video if all the tech works. Thank you to everyone, the support has been inspiring!
