we have a book!

hey friends!

after a long weekend in the woods of wisconsin, we now can proudly say that we have a book!  we compiled all 53 stories into one big document, added in photos, artwork and a little introduction and there you have it.  285 pages of our journey.  our plan now is to get it into the hands of an editor for a few weeks and then clean it up and self-publish it.  hopefully we’ll have a hard finished copy by thanksgiving….

here are a couple photos to help demonstrate our process.  it was pretty intense, but we knew we had to get it all done.

we first cleared out the living room

we then put down our stories in the order of our journey

we then added needed "fillers."  green for sketch/artwork.   blue for photo.

finally we added needed "fillers." green for sketch/artwork. blue for photo.

we are excited to take a break from all the writing and reflecting.  time to just make artwork and let other eyes take a look at our collection of stories.

oh, and we decided on a title for the book.  are you ready?

It’s Not All Downhill From Here:

Tales and Trials of a Bicycle Adventure Along the Mississippi

stay posted.  the journey continues.

en paz,
