Click on photo to go to the Raffle Page for your chance to win!

See the map below for the 2019-2.0 journey. 

This route is about 60% different than the

225 - 8,600 mile journey of 2018. 

*

I will be following this route from east to west and then back again west to east. Of course as there was for 2018, possible detours for meeting EB families is always a possibility. 

*

There will be one detour and layover (break and celebration) from Astoria, OR to Seattle, WA. While in Seattle, I will taking a 4-5 break away from the bicycling.
