You might wonder what we have been doing to occupy our minds on this trip while our bodies remain busy propelling us forward to the next mile marker. Well lucky you, I am going to give you a sneak-peek into the minds of two bicycle travelers (scary I know). Turns out that Clancy mentally disassembles and reassembles Volkswagen motors, while I sell vacuum cleaners door-to-door. So while Clancy is wondering if he put that imaginary bolt in the coffee can or on the imaginary work bench , I am busy overcoming objections and trying to close the sale of a Kerby with someone that doesn‘t actually exist.
All joking aside, we often find our thoughts centered around food and the concept of eating. We can finally justify eating every hour (though I never had much of a problem doing this prior to the trip). Songs also tend to get stuck in your head while pedaling. Lately for me it seems to be Johnny Cash, “Get Rhythm”, which seems quite fitting. Just yesterday, Clancy’s cousin - a girl that can sing and play the guitar like a dream - reminded us of how music deprived we have been by giving us a mini concert of sorts. She performed Jason Mraz, John Mayer, and some music that she wrote herself - all very beautifully. Jon would have been in heaven.
