I hate when things don’t go according to plan. My trip was delayed 9 days, due to a plethora problems. We’re hitting the road on Wednesday. I guess this is a test of my patience. On the road, I’ll encounter a lot of delays (i.e. flat tires, weather, sickness, change of plans, etc…) Started to lose hope around the 6th day, though. I’ll admit. For the past couple of years, it always seems like things don’t work out. I wasn’t going to let that happen with this adventure! I’m cycling across America, people. 9-day delay? That’s just fine. April 24, here I come. NYC, here I come.
