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.
