First Post – Planning Anticipation


This is the first post that I will write for the Team Bowditch’s new website. The three of us will all create our own posts and stories through out this journey. Be sure to check back and see how much we’ve written and how far along we’ve traveled.

For the past month I have been planning to make this a trip a reality for me. I’ve accumulated and bought all my gear and will be touring for the first time in my life. I will be traveling with most of the gear I will need for this trip, all the clothes, camping equipment, and tools I will need to make do. One of the pieces of equipment I am most excited about is a small GPS tracker. When turned on, it tags our location and compares it with the timestamps on the photos we’ll be taking, making it possible to see (on Google maps) where we took the photos. We’ll be sure to post albums when we accumulate a set of pictures. Cycling across the country, we expect meet many people, feel free to approach us or cycle with us for the day. See you sometime on the road! Hopefully we will have everything we need as we shove off this Sunday!

Thanks for your time on this site, and wish us luck!
