What I Will Miss

As most of you know, I am planning on doing a little bike ride that will take me across the southern part of the country and will take 52 days to complete. During this time I will miss many things. Of course I will miss you, my friends and loved ones. That should be assumed without saying. But there are some other things I will miss.

I will miss driving. I will not drive for close to two months. I know it is hard to believe that I would miss this, but it has been on my mind. I will be on a bike for 52 days. No gas required! I’m just having a hard time coming to grips with the fact I will not have a car at my disposal.

I will miss my anniversary. For the first time in 29 years I will be away from my wife on our anniversary. It just might be her best one yet!!

I will miss my birthday. Okay actually I hope not, but I will be away from my loved ones when I turn another year older. Because of this, I will also miss renewing my driver’s license. I think I can do it before I leave, but then again, why should I worry. I won’t be driving any way.

I will miss March Madness. For years I ran a bracket poll for the tournament. I lived for that time of year. This year, I doubt I see a game. How time changes everyone.

I am sure there are other things I will miss. But those are the main ones. However while I am missing these things, I will be experiencing a whole new world.
