• Will you be carrying any traveller’s insurance (like catastrophic coverage)? I can never decide on whether it is a good idea…

  • As long as you lay off the lumpia, and get more spicey tuna in – I think you’ll be fine!

    I’m gearing up mentally to get my annual too. OK, going to make the call now… I got my Cobra back up and running thanks to mr. Obama’s aid.

    Good luck on that trip, I can’t wait to see how you document it!

  • I know how you feel. I recently had a stress test which gave some odd results. They asked me if I was having chest pains which I’d never had prior to being asked. :-) They schedule another stress test with imaging and I had pains until I took the test. Afterwards the pains went away, even before they told me my heart was normal. Two weeks of fear. Sigh.

    I’m not sure why Laura’s insurance is running out, but if it’s because of termination of employeement and you can afford it you may be eligble for COBRA coverage.


    Have a great trip. I’ll be following.

  • Robert,
    Yes, it’s amazing how psychological symptoms can be! I think if I sit long enough and concentrate on a particular part of my body it will eventually start developing some mystery pain.

    Laura just got let go and I was on her insurance. We’re looking into COBRA but it is spendy, even with the Obama discount. We’re looking at other alternatives. Maybe just getting catastrophic as someone suggested, unless someone can recommend a good/reasonably priced provider.

    LOLing @the lumpia comment. What’s wrong with a little lumpia? Pack some longanisa links and some of that fly lice!

  • I usually stop training a week or two before a big ride, to rest for one reason, but also so I don’t injure myself with little or no time to recover. Injury may be more likely on the road than illness, either would suck. Sounds like you have a lot of folks on the west coast following your trip who would lend a hand if anything came up.

    WarmShowers is a great resource, lots of folks willing to help out in a pinch.

    Have a great trip,

  • i got a physical recently and my bike riding had dropped all my numbers into the good range. so barring an unfortunate genetic/environmental issue, i bet you’re doing great.

    best of luck on the journey. i took three months once and drove around the country (barely got a taste of it – it’s a BIG country!). i’ll be following your posts. good luck!
