So how brilliant of an idea is this?
So at some point in August I have to move from Iowa to Washington. Guess who also went from Iowa to Washington? Yeah, that's right. My homies Lewis and Clark.
So I am totally going to do the Lewis and Clark trail from Iowa to Washington. Essentially that means following the Missouri river from Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Montana, getting over the mountains in Montana and then following more rivers to the West Coast.
It will be scenic!
There will be lots of places to stop!
I bet I can even manage to not stop at a chain restaurant the entire trip, since I imagine the trail is littered with places called the Lewis and Clark Cafe and Sacajawea's Pit Stop.
And I decided that to commemorate the trip, that I am going to aim to be in Chamberlain SD for the Lewis and Clark Triathlon on August 15th. I'll have my bike with me anyway, so why not?
