    I didn't think you could drive it in 10 months, let alone bike it.

    A week late in replying, but I'd love to do a San Diego/Seattle to Portland, Maine ride one of these years.

    My niece did a Vancouver to Toronto ride when she was about 19. Pretty impressive.

    the problem with rides like this isn't the muscle power needed or even the ass pain. It's getting the permission slip from the better half.

    OK, I spend a few too many minutes looking at Rand McNally and a bike ride from Anacortes, WA to Acadia, ME is roughly 3000 miles. At 200 miles per day -- with four rest days scheduled -- it would take 19 days to cross the country with a detour from Port Huron to Buffalo through Ontario.

    Sounds like an amazing way to spend the month of May or June. If I do it in a couple of years, I'll be sure to ask my friends at SportsJournalists.com -- that means you, ServeItUp, Patches, Scorpio, etc. -- to provide roadside assistance and cheerleading as I pass through your stretch of road.
