This is a stickup: All your blogs are belong to us
Hello blogular readers, my name is Mickey and I’m hijacking this blog. Since lar cannot be bothered to update on even a bi-monthly basis and Jared has abandoned us to work on his new, never-going-to-be-released blog, I have taken up the mantle as the primary contributor of WIABIS.
“Who is this Mickey motherfucker?” you may ask yourself. You may remember me from the many comments on Lar/Jar’s adventures via bicycle. I housed these two lazy scoundrels for about a month while Lauren’s looooooooong-bike was being built and delivered a package of a metric fuck-ton of Clif bars midway through their original journey to Florida. Well after watching the two of them suffer and live in squalor for months on end by bicycle, I have been inspired to begin my own adventure by across the US of A. The short version my past 3 weeks is this: I have quit my job as an electrical engineer, moved all of my possessions into storage, attempted to short sale my house, and flew to the east coast to work my way back west, to exactly where I started. I’m basically spending a bunch of money on airfare, shipping, storage, and equipment to ride in circles on my bike.
Here is the proposed itinerary:
Fly from Tucson -> Boston to crash at my friend Sebastian’s place for 1 week
Bus from Boston -> New York to spend some time with my buddies Clifford, Marshall, and Todd for 1 week
Amtrak from New York -> Cleveland to see my parents for 2 weeks
Bicycle from Cleveland -> Tucson by way of Columbus, Indianapolis, Wichita, Dallas, and Austin for approximately 2 months.
This is just a rough idea of the route I’m about to take, as I’ve pretty much just drawn lines between specific cities where I know people to visit. I’ve left my google map editable by randos, so if you have some better suggestions for how to get from point A to point B, by all means, go ahead and edit the route.

I fully expect to have far fewer wacky hijinx and odd encounters than the Larjar team so please excuse the shitty photography, terrible writing, lack of content, and overall non-hipness of my posts. I am simply less jive than the Lar Jar train. I am also fully aware that the only people reading this are the two previous hosts of this blog.
