Gotta postpone this one.

After a little debate with Kelly and much more internal debate in my head, this year's East Coast  outing is getting postponed this summer. We've been spending quite a bit of time ( and even more money) on another project out in Colorado the first half of the year. Consequently, this year's trip is going to be put off until another time ( probably Spring or Summer 2014 ). Instead, we're heading out to Colorado ( bike in tow ) to take care of our new home out there for a few weeks. Planning on getting some mountain riding in, just not the touring type.

Trip 2 - East Coast

Time to go again. This time it'll be about 1800 miles from John's Island South Carolina to Bar Harbour Maine. Haven't been getting a whole lot of riding in, but enough here and there. First half of this trip will be dramatically different than 2 years ago as the first 700 miles or so are along the coast. Nice and flat and hopefully a nice southwest wind. Half way point is right through Washington DC and then winding the rest of the way up the coast more inland to avoid Philly, NYC and Boston. Kelly and I will head out around June 28th and then I'll take off Sunday June 30th. Going to keep it under 4 weeks I hope and back by the end of July. That includes 5 days or so with 90+ miles and 5-6 rest days along the way. Looking forward to getting back on the road again. (this may be a lot like the second kid... less pictures, less effort on the blog)
