Ride, eat, ride, eat, rinse, repeat

I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, we made love like sea otters. *That* was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t I get *that* day over, and over, and over…

Kansas is unbelievably uniform. Most of the highways we’ve ridden in this state have a town usually 15 or 30 miles apart. Ride for an hour, stop and eat against the side of a gas station, ride for an hour, stop and eat something. No, we’re not setting any land speed records, but we’re killing it on the consistency front. I think the first three weeks of this trip were like the honeymoon period of a relationship. You’re tired, everyday is exciting or at least different, and then next thing you know you’re like ” you wanna go see a movie again?”. Well, that’s Kansas. You’ve got to make sure you don’t let things get stale. You’ve got to tell the road it looks good today. Slap the road on the ass every once in while.

Know the roads birthday, very important.

Worst nights sleep yet. This bridge is made of cement and wood, so every semi that goes over sounds like it will be the last one to make it over, slamming onto your head, never to be found again.

  1. The nightmare bridge….. hands down my favourite photo so far.

    Have fun at the lake with your DM family. Can’t wait to see some more pictures. And p.s. Heath has great scarecrow hands.

    1. I KNOW! Thought he was holding a bunch of Twizzlers at first….nope, just freakishly long fingers! Hilarious pictures!

  2. The semi scenario encounter is an accurate assessment. Most of our bridges have a “D” rating/falling apart. Sleep under the stars. Protostars stay at a Hilton?!

  3. You guys are awesome. Heath, even after retirement you’re continuing to kill it. I’d be perfectly satisfied watching your parts everywhere from interface to sight unseen to mind field (just to name a few) but you’re still providing fresh inspiration. Two friends biking across the country, and not taking themselves too seriously. Awesome. Thanks, and Keep it up.

  4. big ups on the bike trip guys! heath, you continue to be an inspirational person, regardless of whether theres two or four wheels under your feet. jeff, having no background knowledge of you prior to this excursion, i must say you too are an inspirational person for your support and exceptional photography!
    keep up the good work, and maybe think about biking back to the west coast after the winter?

  5. damn you guys are killing it. I would love to do something like this but it’s fucking gnarly! Haha keep on keepin on dudes!!!

  6. Jeff,
    I realize that when you guys finally arrive in NY, you will likely have a conclusion to this amazing blog; however, I am highly in favor of having you continue to consistently share your images and thoughts in some fashion.
    I am serious dude, your shit is good! I think I have read a fair share of shit in my day, and I gotta say that and yours is right up there with some of the most entertaining and witty!
    Maybe it’s a book, maybe it’s a different blog…not sure, but I guarantee it would work and people will be down for it.
    Why don’t you give it a thought…I’m sure you find some time in the coming days to mull it over…

  7. damn.. im blown away by you guys… i mean.. i did this interview with you.. heath… at woodward about mega and you did it.. what you had to say when you chatted and what your doing now.. its as if you knew this was gooing to happen or at least you knew somthing wild and whacky would go down…
    much love and blesings out to you fellas.. im on this ride with you in spirit… kinda glad im not there in person hahahahahahahaha
