Haha, yeah... I was either lucky or unlucky, depending on which way you look at it, to be knocked off my bike from behind by an Oakland Raider's footballer (now deceased) and got a payout about two months into the journey. If I recall correctly, it was about $5K after all my medical bills were paid out. I used all that up, and some more of my own money, probably the same amount again. Not sure exactly how much though. That did include two flights back to Australia though, the second for my brother's surprise wedding (which if I'd known about a month earlier, I wouldn't have flown home for my surprise Christmas trip). I wasn't that frugal during the trip, when I felt like I needed a 12-ounce steak every couple of weeks, I wouldn't hold back! You could do it on a helluva lot less that's for sure, food is the biggest expense really.

Leon.
Your images are amazing. I love seeing how people combine photography and cycling. Some of the most beautiful images I have ever seen have been from cyclist who just love shooting wherever they go.

This is similar to what I love doing... but have never gotten around to making a web page. Yours is an inspiration.

Look forward to examining it closer and hearing more from you.

Peace.
Eric

Updated and Finished

Hi folks!

Well, it's only been about 500 days since I finished my North America bicycle journey and i have finally finished writing it up !! (What the hell am I going to do with my life now...jeese, looks like I will have to start planning another big trip...)

If you were reading it, I've now added the Mexico section which is less bike and more bikini but so goes it. It starts at:
https://www.geocities.com/leon_mauric...one/mex001.htm

I've since done a two week trip in France (Normandy and brittany) which I will get posted soon and also have a quick trip from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic via the Pyrenees lined up for next Saturday. It's good to be back on the open road.

Enjoy and happy riding to you all.
Cheers
Leon
