Lizard Push-Ups / Death Rays / Apocalyptic Night Clubs: PCT Blog #2

Dear desert, it's been a great run. Thanks for all the sun burns, dehydration episodes, and rattlesnake encounters. However, on a positive note, it's pretty awesome that you received the most rain that you have seen in 22 years.

Bike Blog #1: Talking Elevator / Midnight Sprinklers / Lost Dogs

Wow... Made it to Missoula, Montana. Might not leave... Ever... Or until winter... Whichever comes first.
