Bicycle tour from Maine to West Virginia

Forrest’s adventure story, bicycle touring from Maine to West Virginia, is one of our first real-time adventures. Well, as real-time as it could get in the year 2000. Forrest sent us regular updates from the road and we would relay his message to the world. It was the advent of social media.
