Travel

Hey there, I'm Ben, and on May 18th 2012 I left on a big ol' bike tour from home near Richmond, VA with San Francisco, CA in my sights. My travels brought me through North Carolina, Tennessee and Bonnaroo, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Rt. 50 through Nevada, and finally California. It took 160 days. I was keeping up with my design work along the way which made the work/life balance incredibly challenging, but I think I needed that. I met some fantastic people, gained an incredible perspective on life, and earned one hell of a sock tan.

The bike came today. I was afraid it might have been lost in the mail. So so so so happy right now.
