Do you believe  that anticipation is one of the best parts of living the large(r) life ? The source of all fake and real  information can take you off the fence.

NY Times Travel Anticipation

Here is a brief summary of what the goals for the summer and spring 2020 look like.  Next week Deb will go to Chicago to party with rock star grandson  Jack William as he turns 7. Laser Tag and hotel swimming are on the docket. I will honor Jack’s 7th by running 26.7 miles in Salisbury MD- yes to a steak please. Jack and I will follow up this summer with 7 rides down the tallest water slide we can find.

In May I hope to conquer 4 states in the Northeast in 4 days. That will push my count up to 41. Hopefully June will be a good month and I will hit Montana with  the Dave Bell road show and follow up with another attempt at Washington and hit OR a few days later.


If everything is still operating in the leg regions then there will be a weekend in Juneau AK in July.  August will feature a mini circle  by bicycle of Lake Michigan with both ferries and a credit card from our place in Delavan WI.  I do not want to jinx September by anticipating too fiercely but there is some spectacular swimming in Lake Powell AZ  with some very fun folks scheduled.


October will have some personal  running  states and Chicago Marathon cheerleader duties with Euro runners Debbie Jayne and Katja Forgotcha.



Here is the reveal on the  mile by mile of the Bubba trip to bike across America that is down for next spring. Is there enough butt  powder on the planet to do this ? There is only way to find out.  Yes I will go for that practice bike ride with you unless it is King Richard the randonneur man asking.


I am hoping Jeannie will give me three wishes that Michele V can get 2 months off work to ride across America too.
