I'm now enjoying a shot of Maker's Mark bourbon at the Talbott Tavern while reading today's issue of The Kentucky Standard, which I pause to note has a front-page story about ABBA, my favorite pop group.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that this experience is much more enjoyable, and arguably a better way to appreciate the best of what Kentucky has to offer, than roasting in a heat index of 110 under direct sunlight and heavy physical exertion while being regularly attacked by dogs (and furthermore two hours ago caught in a lightning storm and downpour) would have afforded.

All joking aside, I didn't plan this trip in the hope of experiencing the WORST each state has to offer, but rather to gain an appreciation for what is BEST about each state: up to around the point I switched from a Novara Randonee bicycle to a Hyundai Sonata automobile a bicycle was the best way to achieve that goal, but now I'm confident a car is a better way.

But please rest assured that before this cross-country trip ends with my airplane flight back to Seattle, my bicycle WILL make a return as my means of transport, and furthermore will do so in a particularly spectacular way.

I'm planning that return to the saddle now, and indeed have been since first having the idea yesterday.

Just you wait :)
