TRIP 2011

Update #19 - August 09th
Chittenango, NY
4,148.57 miles (6,637.71 KM)



The couple of weeks have been good. I made nightly stops in Merrillville, Bremen, and Kendallville, Indiana; Bryan, Perrysburg, Clyde, Bay Village, and Ashtabula, Ohio; the burough of North East, Pennsylvania; Blasdell, Medina, Macedon, Newark, and Chittenango, New York. Tonight, I will be in Chittenango, New York since I'm taking a well deserved full-day off the road. This is my first full day-off the road since July 25th in Batavia, Illinois.

For the most part, I've ridden in the uppper third of Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. Since August 05th, I've been riding along the historic Erie Canal Towpath. It has been really nice riding without having to deal with motorists. I'm about 120 miles (192 KM) away from Albany, New York. Albany is on the Hudson River and is my turning point. I'll be starting my trek down the Eastern Sea Coast. My initial plan is to ride over 100 miles (160 KM) along the Hudson River. When I get south of Poughkeepsie, I plan to try and take a Metra Line Train into New York City and then take another train somewhere in New Jersey. I have found out that taking trains is a more safer and enjoyabe way to get in and out of New York City than to try and ride in and out of the city.

As I have mentioned in these past couple of updates, I have decided that this year's mission trip will be more of service to others instead of just riding. I'm not going for high number of miles. If I ride just 4,000 or 5,000 miles (6,000 Kilometers to 8,000 Kilometers). this year that will be okay. My plans will be returning to Shreveport, Louisiana and volunteering with the
Fuller Center For Housing of NW Louisiana in Shreveport again. I will possibly be there from possibly October or November of this year to possibly March or April of next year. Shreveport will become my new homebase.

I will keep everybody abreast through upcoming updates. Usually, I try and add a new update every two weeks along the way so the next one will be around August 25th, 2011.
