Alaska to Mexico blog, two brothers rite of passage bike tour.

In 2008 my sons aged 15 and 22 went on the adventure of their lifes. Cycling from Anchorage Alaska to Mexico. My oldest son has been working on putting this into a guide form. It's a great story whether as seasoned cyclist, a parent wondering how the next generation will ever survive or a young person looking to have their own "excellent adventure".

I've only read through a couple entries, but I've really enjoyed the tone of the blog. I'd love to read it up when he's completed the guide form!

What a trip, you must be quite proud.

I'm very proud and I'm also kind a trying to drum up interest to keep him motivated to keep writing because as the dad I really enjoy reading it.

Since it seems that lots of people are more interested in the guide aspect of my blog, I'm actually creating a sister website that will focus specifically on that. You can find that at www.pacificcoastcycling.com , but it is still just a baby right now. I need to update some of the info in the old blog posts back at www.alaska-to-mexico.blogspot.com, and then I can migrate the guide stuff over in a few weeks.

I'd really like to create a good place where I can share my knowledge of the route we took, so if you have any ideas or requests that you would love to see in either blog, let me know.

I'd also like to bring in guest bloggers over at www.pacificcoastcycling.com to really create a comprehensive guide, so if anyone out there is interested, shoot me a message or leave a comment on the blog. Thanks!
