TI: As Ready as I’m Going to Be

Trans Iowa starts in less than two days. I’m as ready as I’m going to be.


I’ve ridden the miles (though not enough), tweaked the bike (probably more than necessary), packed the clothes (enough for a 3 week trip), tested (and charged) the lights and devices, and stayed (reasonably) healthy and (somewhat) uninjured throughout the spring.

If you want to follow along at home, listen to Trans Iowa Radio. I’m going to try to call in this year, when I get a chance (but don’t be surprised if you don’t hear from me). Either way, it’s a good listen.

We pull out of Madison tomorrow morning. See you on the other side.

  1. Awesome.

    When, in the weary darkness, the journey becomes long and lonesome, play this song in your head…and keep those cranks spinning. Maybe it was made for gravel ramblin’…or maybe this just the kind of music we southern boys relate to…

    Have a great time, my friend!
