One thought on “October 8, 1998”
Late September into October is definitely a difficult time to keep up the momentum on a bike tour, especially in the upper Midwest. It was around the same time of year and in the same area that I realized that my cross-continent tour of 2011 wasn’t going to finish properly–I’d be lucky to limp into Chicago. I think it was a good call to end it when I did, rather than “tough it out” for another month or so.
And oh man, if all the 2020 bikepackers could hear your 1998 self talking about gravel. 😉
