a way of life

I believe in being all in. 100%
Thing is, that doesn't mean you're always going to be 100%. It just means to give every day 100% even if on some days it's only 100% of 70% - if you can figure that out.


What do you want to be when you grow up?"

"Kind", said the boy.

Why Ride Across The Country?

Why ride my bike across the country (you can read about that here http://theadventuretab.com/the-ride-2021/)? My first answer, off the cuff….

“Why Not?”

I’m not one to think about the reasons on why someone might not want to do this. Or the concerns/worries that some people may have on why not do it. I have barely made this public yet, the whole riding The Great American Trail thing. And even so, I have heard questions about why, or how, or what are you going to do if this or that happens.

The reality, that’s not how I have ever lived my life. I know what I want to do, and then I make it happen.

Are there hurdles? Of course, as is with everything in life. What do you do though? Do you turn around? Heck no! You either jump the hurdle or knock it down. Either way. You go get it!

So Why Then?

Again, my first thought is “why not?”. I won’t stick you with that answer.

The reality? Right now, more than anything, it’s about raising awareness to mental illness/health. More on that reasoning in a future post (so follow along).

The other, to raise awareness about an awesome trail which will eventually connect the country from one coast to the other. Washington to Washington.

Then there’s inspiration. If one individual decides that they can do something to heal their heart, give to others, bring light to something they believe in. All the better too!

The REAL reality though

I don’t actually know the deeper reasoning. I firmly believe that the reasoning inside will show itself though.

Maybe when my wheel starts the roll across the country?

Maybe it will be in a moment of pain as I climb up and over a mountain?

Maybe it will come after a crash or may not until I reach the end.

I do believe though, that there will be a deeper reasoning. A deeper why. I am sure there will be tears, and frustration. I am also sure there will be laughter, hugs, and miles pedaled with others.

What I know is this. I will do it. I will make it. Through cold rain or melting heat. I will ride from Washington State to Washington DC.

Are you able to help in this journey? The $3000+ of fuel for support vehicle, the $$$ in meals for support team. The additional gear to make the ride possible. Anything helps. Even $5.

There’s a turning point where you have to jump into something else.

Then there’s an uncomfortable transition.

But here’s the thing about jumps:

you regain the energy for the new thing that the old thing once consumed.

Reminds me of Finding Joe we talked about here. http://theadventuretab.com/news/the-new-beginning/

Unsure where I'm going, only know where I've been.
Allowing the light to lead me, guide me, drive me, because I am after all, just a chaser of the light.
