in Lexington, heading to Charleston [Jun. 5th, 2004|03:00 pm]
Joe Ibershoff
So, I've quit, and I've moved. Shew! It was a lot rougher than I thought it would be. Had to toss out most of my furniture because I couldn't afford to move it. But whatever, it's only stuff. The most important thing is that it's done. :-) As good as it is to be here though, I'll miss some things about living in Maryland, and I'll definitely miss some of the people. But c'est la vie.

I've currently in Lexington, and I'm leaving tomorrow morning to ride my bike to Charleston. It's 175 miles as the crow flies, or 240 miles as the Joe rides (can't go on the interstate, and have to go a good 10-15 miles out of my way to get to the campsites). I'm planning to spend 4 days; I could try for 3, but that's not leaving much room for getting lost, getting flats, etc. Plus I'd like it to be more of a relaxation thing than a stress thing.

In any case, once I get there I'll be spending roughly the next month in Charleston living with my Mom. Then I'll be moving to Georgetown to live with my Dad, probably around the 4th of July. Then come August, I'll be moving into my place in Lexington. Same house I lived in before and almost the same roommates, but I'll be in a different bedroom. I wound up taking the small bedroom, partly as incentive to force myself to get rid of some of the crap I have that I don't need.

I'm happy. :-)

That is such a long trip! Good Luck! Hopefully you won't wreck, get a flat or.. well.. anything like that.
Then again, if you do.. you will just get sympathy from girls again. ;-)

Hey Joe, I hope you have a safe trip...I can't imagine riding a bike that far! I wish you luck and good weather.

Maybe I'll see you sometime while you're in Charleston...it's been awhile.

I'm glad that you made it safely, and I wish you luck on the trip to Charleston. Four days bicycling to get there... Awesome plan, Joe :-)

t.s eliot probably drank cough syrup for fun

hi. i think you're exciting. shall we be pen pals?
i like;
bikes, raspberries, tress, stars, genetics, the movement of things in space, bees, and i think if god had a voice it'd sound like cello and he'd ride a green bicycle to and from our hearts.

Well now, how could I possibly say no to that? ;-)
