On August 12th (to August 25th-26th), I plan on leaving my apartment in Boston for a 2 to 2 1/2 week journey to and from Toronto via route 90 (more or less). My bike is my father's 1986 Univega Maxima Uno, that I have rebuilt for the trip. Other than racks and panniers on the bike, I will be riding with my acoustic guitar on my back, that I am also in the process of stripping apart and refinishing for the trip. The overall goal of this trip is to write an album while on this personal journey, hopefully saying something more than if I just kept a blog to share my experiences. When I get back from the trip, I will record all the material I have compiled and have it released on an album. Backers will make this hope a reality, as your support will blossom a much larger meaning than if I were just hopping on a bike and doing this solely for myself. I will also be keeping a blog along the way to give updates on my status and keep connected with backers. For me, this trip is an ultimate test of self. The pain and the beauty of pushing limits. The fear of near freedom. The inspiration to learn more about yourself and others, and share it.
