Where to next?

Posted on 20 May 2010

It is surprising how quickly you can fall into a new routine. Almost every night I get “home” to the hotel, take a shower to get rid of the worst of the grime, clean the bathtub to again get rid of the worst of the grime and then go for a soak in the hotel jacuzzi. One of the ladies I work with always raves about her jacuzzi and how great it is after work and I had never really understood the appeal until this trip. Now I get it.

Generally after that I grab a quick dinner and then by 9 o’clock I’m dead to the world. Tonight though I actually felt like I had some energy left so I went for a 3 or 4 mile walk, left the iPod and just thought about what comes next. I only have two days left with Habitat and the reality of planning the trip home is beginning to hit me. I’m thinking through three options

1) I can head home on Sunday, sticking to my original plan and picking up as many states as I can on the way home, probably 3000 miles and 6 days of riding

2) I can head home on Sunday and just take the quick route home to get back to my family, probably two days and 1200 miles

3) I could spend the weekend here, spend another 2 or 3 days working with Habitat, and then head for home on Thursday or Friday taking the quick route home.

I really have enjoyed my time here and the thought of extending it and getting more done is quite appealing. I have certainly lost a lot of sweat here, after working with a saw-z-all and rebar today I have lost some blood and by the time I leave I expect I will shed a few tears. Let’s see what the next few days bring.
