Bicycling Saved My Life--Part 3

So I left Jan. 31. I’d packed my bike and checked it in as oversized luggage. Plus 2 other boxes containing my panniers and stuff=about 30 pounds, plus the bike and other gear=50 pounds.

Here is my itinerary, or in other words, what may be possible. If you know anyone in Key West that might be able to host me—shoot me a Facebook message. https://www.facebook.com/jane.hertenstein and follow me also at my Crazy guy on a Bike trip diary:
