In 2017 when I made the decision to ride my bike across America, I had no idea how it would change my life. I had no experience whatsoever in bicycle touring, no special bike (I used a $350.00 department store mountain bike) still I made the choice to do something without an understanding of the outcome. This uncertainty is what made the ride so special.

When I first saw this video, I could relate on so many levels. When I decided to do my ride, I approached my employer and told him what I was planning and that it would take me approximately 3 1/2 months to complete. I told him that I hoped that I has his support but was prepared to lose my job if that's what it came to. Though they couldn't pay me while I was gone, they supported me 100% including my job when I returned. Watch the video below then comment if you could do something like this.
