yo I'm native born and raised in Miami fl first started traveling in 2013 didn't turn out so good so I stopped and went back to the wage slave life. Now I'm in school at santa fe college here in Gainesville bored outta my mind.

looking to leave fl in august and ride my bike to Colorado, be cool to find a road dog or mate along the way.

I'm really laid back and like to cook and smoke not lazy tho

farming is my forte and riding bike

I've got mad respect for bike travelers. I tried it once myself but only got about 120 miles before I had to turn in the towel. I wish you all the luck in the world.

Got like 6 bikes, lol. Ranging from 1950s monarch, to 70s schwinns and a fairly new cannondale. Bikes are a huge party of my life!

What's your route plan exactly or roughly anyways? If you go thru Ohio I can give ya some helpful tips.
For example my home town is justbwestbof Cincinnati. Local bike shop there I'm good friends with the owner. He'd be more than willing to house you up for a few days wife makes delicious food as well. An I'm sure he'd give ya a free tuneup and some supplies if you need.
Prolly get ya housed upbdwntwn cincy as well. Bunch of old bike friends there.

Okay that makes way more sense, i was so confused lol.
I pedaled thru Oklahoma city few years back. Bike shop on the east side was really friendly. This was 2012ish so old if the same guy works there but the mechanic housed us up and fixed our bikes. Super chill and nice.

Typically most bike shops will be more than willing to help out. Especially if you tell them what you're doing.
I always made a point to stop at shops even if I didn't need anything if nothing else you get some good conversation an friendly faces

Got a new bicycle today! I feel so much better
Hitched from Ft. Collins, CO to Laramie, WY in three rides and an hour and a half. Today’s a good day.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
