The weather has been beautiful as of late so we’ve both been able to get out and do some road riding. I’m definitely glad that the winter weather cleared out and is giving us a chance to get out there and do our thing. Now the spring rain has begun, but this is most likely something we’ll be dealing with the whole way.

The next two weeks (plus a day) are going to involve finishing the final arrangements for our trip, and doing some fully packed rides to ensure that we are both comfortable with our bikes / gear.

Just a few site updates:

Finally got a chance to add Dawson’s bio and picture to the About Us page, so definitely go check that out.

Also, I got my new camera which I will be bringing along, so expect some much improved picture quality from here on out.



Lots of content added!

February 28, 2010

I am very happy to announce that I’ve completed the addition of a ton of content to the site. Make sure you check out all of the pages and see what I’ve been up to.


  • About The Ride page completed
  • Our Cause page completed — Donation page is up and running, so make sure you donate if you support the National Coalition Against Censorship.
  • About Us page partially completed – my bio is up.
  • Gear page partially completed – my partial gear list has been added.

Hopefully within the next few days I’ll get to add Dawson’s bio to the About Us page, as well as get some preliminary gear lists going for him.

Thanks for reading.

P.S. Our trip is only one month away!

Website under construction

February 17, 2010

Thank you for visiting our website. Right now we are still beginning the process of adding content and getting everything worked out. For now there’s not much to view but be sure to check back for updates soon, as we’ll be updating almost daily.

Things to expect:

– Information about how you can sponsor our cross-country ride by donating to the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC).

– Learn more about the NCAC and why we chose this as our cause.

– Short biographical blurbs about each of us.

– Information and pictures of our bicycles and the gear that we will be bringing along.

– “Real-time” map of our route across the North American continent.

– Many pictures and journal entries showcasing our adventure.

I am looking forward to your support and feedback as we move closer to our intended leave date of April 1st, 2010.

Thanks a lot for your patience as we work diligently to get everything up.
