Cool! Gorgeous pictures. I just have two questions:
1. Where did the dog come from? Was he/she traveling with you?
2. Why the (mostly) nekkid photo at the Kansas sign?
This dog ran with me for over 4 miles. I want to say this was in the Ozarks, Missouri. I had about 5 dogs run with me a long time, the longest being this one. I had a puppy run beside me for 3 miles and I tried to make it stop and go back home; however, the precocious pup was still following me. After a while, I had to really pedal hard to lose it and I looked back to see it 500 yards away, still faithfully running in my direction. It nearly broke my heart.
As for the naked photo, the 3 Brits I met up with were taking nude photos of themselves at certain landmarks, this being one of them. We got yelled at by a pickup truck full of obese men with Dixie caps. It was a good introductory lesson to Kansas.
Did you take the trip solo, Blake?
Yes I did. I met up with a friend from Ohio to ride with me through Kentucky. Met 3 Brits in Illinois and rode with them off and on. Also rode with a couple also from Massachusetts, another Brit, and a brother/sister duo from New York. However, I'd say about 80% of my riding on the trip was alone.
