I’m an ultralite backpacker and a passionate unicyclist trying to find his medium on the road. I hiked the Appalachian Trail (AT) last year, where I was known by the trail name Sideshow. I hope to hike the PCT after I make the 4,262 mile jaunt across the states on one wheel. I’m enjoy sampling all the culinary world has to offer me. This will take a priority on my trip, along with listening to music, and meeting as many people as possible.
I grew up around Baltimore, MD. I live in Brevard, NC, just south of Asheville, but for now, my home is the road. At first I was motivated purely by the adventure and the challenge. I now wish to dispell the belief that unicyclists are only performers, and promote a more open, less fearful society. One person at a time.
If you have any interest in boarding me as I cross the country or just wish to give me words of encouragement, please contact me via my email.If you have enjoyed reading my blog during my ride across the country, please consider donating to my savings so that I may create another blog during my hike from Canada to Mexico in 2011.
