What a great RR from a pioneer who sounds like he would have loved our 13hp! I love that he speaks so highly of his little engine. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. Great story

Just a little bump for those of you who didn't see this last time. It's definitely worth the read, especially if you're still weathered in.

So this is the fellow who started the custom of taking a picture of the motorcycle stuck upright in sand or mud. I would love to have seen the photos. Very interesting read!

if any of you have netflix there is a documentary on Dr. Horatio Jackson's (mentioned in the first paragraph) first cross country automobile trip. Both are really impressive stories...

Bump for those who haven't yet seen George Wyman's story (post #1). Or, if you're getting older like me all you have to do is give it a little time and it's just like you never read it.:D I think in more modern times George would've picked a TW to make his ride.

What a neat story. Love a man that can take that kind of hardship and perservere. Sure humbles modern man with all the comforts of help at the end of your fingers.

Would be kind of neat to start a relay around our great nation and do a ride report as the baton is passed from one group to another. Taking the roads less traveled would be quite a story in it's self as we snaked here and there across the nation and back.

I've bicycled across the US twice (slow learner). But not on railroad tracks!!!:blob10:

Wouldn't he have loved a TW, wouldn't you love to be able to turn back the clock and do the ride (but I'll take the TW on it, not a bicycle!!)

Excellent read, thanks for putting it up.
