A dream becoming reality.

     I've been an avid cyclist since my early twenties.  When I moved to the Washington, D.C. area in 1977 the combination of cycling, camping and touring took hold.  Though work and life kept me from making many tours, I have been able to make a few short ones over the intervening years.  Now, the time has come for a real adventure.  Soon I will be leaving Aachen and heading north.  My destination is the North Cape.  Given my past experience cycle touring, the excitement about the sights I will see, the challenges I will overcome and the nice people I'm sure to meet leaves me so nervous I can hardly sleep.

     What I want to do on this page is record my experiences, share pictures and basically just keep a diary of those interesting things that transpire on the trip.  I hope you will enjoy it.
