No mud flaps, just a mountain bike. Thinking about getting a roadbike for commuting and keep the mountain bike for fun.

I put in my 2wk notice on Monday. Two weeks from today I start my journey to Portland.
Will stop to see some attractions along the way and since I have the cat I'll be getting hotel rooms. If it was just me I'd probably camp out.

Day 1: Des Moines, IA to South Bayard, NE (Chimney Rock, on NE quarter). 600 miles.
Day 2: South Bayard, NE with diversion to Alliance, NE (Carhenge) to Salt Lake City, UT. 650 miles.
Day 3: Cat Relax Day in Salt Lake City. 0 miles.
Day 4: Salt Lake City to Boise, ID by way of Blackfoot, ID and Arvo, ID (Craters of the Moon National Park). 450 miles.
Day 5: Boise, ID to Portland. 430 miles.

Straight shot would be 1,800 miles, but with diversions to attractions it will be closer to 2,150 miles.
