Yes, the title is the number of hours I have left in the US. Getting a little. . . interesting as I am still notcompletely sure where I am going to be staying my first night, and as of now I am still working on figuring out how to send all of my ski equipment to Masterton (for when I finish biking) once I make it to New Zealand. Other than that, just have to pack! Figured out the amount of weight I am hauling. Without the bike itself, looks like just over 100 lbs of gear.

Took a short 10-mile ride today to knock the soreness out of my legs.

Well, on the upside, at least I can entertain myself during the long flight by reviewing lower extremity anatomy in order of soreness.

Want to give a shout out to all of my Missouri friends (as I just got back last night from St. Louis where I was able to visit everyone one last time). Will miss you all. Special thanks to Clint and Niki, who put up with me staying at their place pretty much every night. You poor souls.

All right, off to Skype more shipping people in New Zealand. And that packing thing.


  1. Look this is going to get old if I'm the only one posting. How can you all resist making comments about that exceptionaly gay photo he just posted?

  2. At least he didn't stuff his wetsuit in this one.

  4. Dr. M. Please contact me ASAP.
