My stay in Lake Geneva, and a new adventure!

I arrived at my campsite in Big Foot Beach Park and Campground, and had unloaded a few things. I stopped for moment to check my phone for messages. I found that I'd missed a text and phone call from A.M., the first Warm Showers host to get back to me ever. She lived about 5 more miles away from the campground, but another 300 feet in elevation as well. I weighed whether I should just rest and perhaps stay with her the following night, but then my good sense got the better of me. I called her, and after a brief conversation I repacked the bike and headed north out of the campground; by way of an exit only visible from the satellite view on Google Maps. About 30 minutes and much huffing and puffing later, I pulled into my host's driveway and was greeted by A.M. and her dog. She and her pooch showed me around and down to the back of the house, where the pup promptly chased off two Sandhill cranes that were feeding on seeds dropped from her feeders above on the rear patio.

A new route!

My original plan, earlier this year, was to ride south right away, then to southern California, then north to Oregon or Washington state, then east once more to return to Chicago. After talking with many people about this I realized I'd be crossing the northern part of the country in December, January, or February. So I changed my mind and decided to go west first, then south, then east. However, in the first few days of this trip, I enjoyed a bit of a cold snap in the weather, and it served as a warning for the best weather I would likely find on my way to, while crossing, and on the opposite side of the Rocky Mountains. I decided to lookup some historical scientific data, to help inform my decision making. (I invite all current US presidents who may be reading this, to steal this tactic) Thanks to weather.com (not an endorsement) I found that I need to chase the comfortable temperatures I would prefer, south. So, as of today, this is now my likely route. I'll make excursions…

The first three days! Now time to fine tune the bike and my gear, and finalize the best possible route. - - - #TheBicycleNomad #BobVoyage #TrialByTireTour @yubabicycles #cargobike #cargobikelifestyle #whatabikecando #bicyclette #bicycleshop #cargobikes#bicycleride #bicyclelife #bicycledeck #bicycleday #bicycleart #bicycletrip #bicycleculture #bicyclelove #bicycleclub #bicycletour #bicycletouring #bicyclestyle #bicycletravel #bicyclelover #bicyclephotos #bicyclekick #bicycles #bicyclecafe #bicycle #bicycleriding #bicyclegram #bicycleride
