Preparing for the Long Commute

Dear readers, Laura and I have decided to go on our Grand Adventure and we hope you will follow along at We’re not hitting the road for a while yet, but if you’ve enjoyed my posts about touring in the past, it will give you an interesting glimpse in how we’re preparing (hopefully it will inspire others).

Heck, if you’re already bike commuting, you’re halfway there. Good on ya!

The first few months of the site will be about living simply (something timely in these strange economic times). I’ll still be posting on for a while yet (it might be fun to do interviews with bike commuters around the world and see how they roll!), but I just wanted to let you all know about our next far flung endeavor.

    Sounds really exciting Russ. Can’t wait to see what you guys will be doing.

    This sounds like an awesome adventure you have planned. Makes my planning of a 4 day camping/bikeride sound so miniscule. Good luck, and hope the packing goes well. I look forward to keeping updated on your travels through your blog.

    man…in a way I’m a bit sad to see you guys go. But your adventure does sound really exciting. Please be safe out there and keep posting so we know you guys are ok.
