    Hi

    Hello,

    My name is Jacob Blizard. I'm an undergraduate at Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio, and I'm trying to get into bike touring. Me and a friend from my job last summer joked occasionally about the idea of biking across America. It gradually became less of a joke, and we eventually decided that would be how we spent our summer vacation this year. We're planning on leaving from the bay area around the beginning of July, and riding all of July and August, roughly following the ACA western express to transamerica route. I'll probably be posting some in the next couple weeks looking for advice, help, and possibly other folks to ride with for stages.

    Looking forward to being a part of this community!

    -Jacob

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
