On a recent post, Prairie Voyageur
asked if I there was an easy way to access my writings of bike tours past. And I realized there wasn’t, so spent a few hours poking around the back-end of the blorg cleaning and organizing, and adding some photos where appropriate.
To be bluntly honest, I was a pretty lazy blogger before a few months ago. I didn’t do a good job of writing posts, and if I started to document something like an tour, I would “fall off” after a while. So reading these partial travelogues may not be that satisfying. But it’s all I got right now. I’d love to say that someday I will finish up these writings, but with the new adventures that I intend to document extensively, I wouldn’t expect much addition and refinement to these old posts.
The bike tour that I blogged about most extensively was my first, the Minneapolis-Madison-Milwaukee jaunt of September 2005. And it ain’t even on this blog! Check out one of my other blogs, Temporary Relocation Project
for the scoop. The entries from the TRP blog was the basis for the Temporary Relocation Project #1 zine that I published in summer of 2006 . That right now is out of print. I’m on the fence whether I’ll reprint it, as I don’t think it was executed that well (and wasn’t received that well by some people, as evidenced by the comment here.
) But maybe I will reprint? In any case, it won’t happen until after the Cross-Continent Bike Tour if it does.
As for other posts, I created a Touring Travelogues
that pulls together all my writings about bike touring on this blog.
But don’t worry, there’s more to come! Besides the inevitable blogging about the Big Trip, I do have a half-done Temporary Relocation Project #2
in the wings. It’s all about my Trans-Oregon trip
from last year. Just need to rewrite some stuff. I was hoping to have it done last
summer, but you know how things go at the UAL HQ. Soon, my friends, soon.
