I had originally intended to transcribe my Tour Divide journal entries onto the web, editing along the way, but I thought it might be a little more authentic to put them up “as is.” My handwriting is mostly legible – to me, at least. It has been fun to read through the experience and remember just how challenging, inspring, and transformative it was. Keep on truckin’!
The above posts are my first three Tour Divide journal entries, transcribed and reworked. The handwritten entries below begin where the posts leave off.
I reworked the July 1 entry into a piece that was published in The Cordillera, an annual anthology of Tour Divide tales.
