We got ready to go this morning but a thunderstorm was raging outside. We waited for the storm to pass but there were more storms right behind as a cold front was passing through the area. We decided to sit tight for the day with predicted clearing tomorrow. While waiting we discussed what been on our minds for the last week, the spike in COVID cases and the new variants. We have about 3 weeks of crossing areas with a high number of cases before reaching New England where the numbers look better, at least right now. So we decided to put the trip on hold for now. We reached 2900 miles and have had the opportunity to ride some of the most beautiful parts of America. We look forward to returning to Ohio and completely route in the not too distant future.
To all our friends and family that have supported us along the way — THANKS from the bottom of our hearts!
