TRIP 2002

Update #36 - September 16th
Portland, Indiana - 6,370 miles (10,192 KM)



The last week or so has been pretty interesting because of it's strangeness. The journey almost came to an abrupt halt between London and Mt. Vernon, Kentucky. A major joint of the recumbent frame broke. Somehow a stress fracture almost went clear through the major tube of the frame. If I hadn't gotten off the bent when I did, I might have had two pieces of bike. It was lucky for me that a Good Samaritan picked me up alongside the highway in his truck. It was also a blessing since he had a welder at his home. It took four welding rods to finish the job but the frame was fixed.

Late Monday afternoon (September 2nd) while I was finishing the last four miles into Nocholasville, Kentucky. a guy in a pick-up truck hit the mirror on my handlebar with the mirror on his truck. My mirror was destroyed and I took a minor spill onto the pavement. I just got some scrapes and a bump on my elbow and maybe a few bruised ribs. This could have been a serious but it wasn't. The recumbent came out unharmed.

The rest of the ride through Kentucky went okay and I haven't had any major problems here in Indiana. I'm on the way to Ft. Wayne. I should be there tomorrow. I'm hoping that this might be a stopping point for the year.

As I wrote in other updates, I'm not sure where I'll be going or how long I will be out. Each day and mile cycled will be with ADONAI's and Y'SHUA's comfort, help, and guidance.
