The Bosom of Pennsylvania


Though mechanical failure and delaying repair are constant, the greatest impediments to this journey have been conflict and our sinking morale. Leaving the daunting and interminable stretches of the midwest behind, the group is invigorated by Pennsylvania's mountains. The serpentine roads are a thrill and our progress is almost palpable as we round each turn, climb to the apex of every hill, and plummet whooping down steep mountain grades. Animosity, acrimony and accusation are forgotten, centrifuged away by the winding roads.

I got close. At lease I didn't have to consult Microsoft Word! Jesse and Valissa need to get a life. I mean, who checks a daily blog about a bunch of idiots riding to DC on mini-bikes. I know I don't.

"at lease"? uh-oh.

I don't think even Microsoft Word would help with that one.

garth. you seem insistant on reconfirming for the entire world that you are in fact the source of the bad riding vibe? i check the blog because i like to hear what colin's experience of the ride is, and because i think what NR and Colin are doing is exciting, and meaningful. if you think its such a waste of time, you should have stayed home and drank beer by yourself in a dark room for 12 days.

That sounds like fun, except your mom said she was busy for at least the next 13 days.
