Tuesday 30th July 2019, Ann Arbor.
Well I hit the 17,000 mile mark today. At the beginning every 1,000 miles felt a major achievement but now there are mixed emotions as the end comes into sharper focus. I think it’s really good that Japan is last as I think that will be fascinating as India and China were.
Today I saw the first tangible sign of Amish communities around here.
I had hoped that with new tyres in St Louis I might reach the end with no more punctures. No such luck. I had one today due to a very large fragment of glass. There’s lots of it about on the shoulders.
961 miles to go.
