Hi Abbot,

I thought you would appreciate hearing about the adventure that my son will soon complete. He began riding his bicycle in May, from southern Ohio, heading north to Canada, then across to Alaska. Right now he is south of Portland, OR, on his way here!

Wow, Highway, that's some ride! I can't imagine crossing into Alaska by bike. How did he go into Canada? If he went up through Wisconsin and Minnesota, I probably know some of that route. We rode from DC to Minneapolis, then Duluth along the southern edge of Lake Superior.

Hi Abbot,
DC to Duluth?! Congrats on doing that!

Yes, from Seney, MI, he rode west through the Porkies, to Duluth, then around the Boundary Waters, continuing west to Banff, Alberta. Then through the Canadian Rockies to British Columbia, heading through the Yukon Territory to Alaska. From there he took a ferry to Washington...
I just spoke to him last night; He made camp south of Susanville.

I'm so relieved that he's in California!

That's some good riding. Give him a hat tip from me.

Every year that I lived up in Nevada City, I told myself I'd go ride at Susanville, but I never got around to it. There's supposed to be a fun tunnel to bike through up there.

He was in Truckee last night, so I expect him here sometime later today!
