On Leaving

We whittle our belongings down to the essentials and eat a last meal.


Friday we buy donuts for breakfast, make a few last minute adjustments, pack everything on the bikes and roll away.


Oh, just kidding.

Tyndall’s business sunglasses are still at the house. We return, get the sunglasses and try again.

Now we can leave. We meet friends for the ride out of town. Then, we’re on our own.

We pedal pedal pedal to Wasilla where we stay with friends for the night. Thanks for the hospitality and amazing food Keith and Leeann.

It’s hard to comprehend what it is we have set out to do, so, for now, we’re thinking in small bites. A ride to Wasilla. Another to Talkeetna. Going to Chickenstock. Each small bite leading to larger ones.
