We made it to New York! Whoo! Biking through Long Island and Brooklyn was NOT FUN. Actually, it was a lot of fun. But it was NOT SAFE. Still, we are alive, and we are, more or less, healthy. Except for my many complaints about various joints, tendons, and muscles, I think we are doing okay. Jon doesn't like hills. Blake doesn't like flat tires. I don't like pain. These are all rather trivial when surrounded by the good people of NYC.

As you may have noticed, we haven't been posting a whole lot. Internet is sparse out there in the woods. I guess that's the point of camping and riding through the countryside. But it makes it hard to tell much about the tour, since Blake is mostly posting via text message. But there are other ways to keep up with us! I have two tour diaires, on and on the Willamette Weekly's Local Cut. I'll be posting new diaries every week or so. Also, there's a sweet audio postcard covering the tour that appeared on central NY NPR affiliate WRVO. It was produced by Jasmyn Belcher and you can listen to it here.

Now I'm going to say goodnight to the computer and go to the Slingshot Dakota show. Brooklyn!
