T minus 26 days.
I meant to cycle 60 miles today, which is my training and what I will be averaging six days out of seven in America. The weather had other ideas. It has been raining non-stop for nearly 24 hours. So, instead I will send out hundreds of emails now, to a list of local newspapers and radio stations situated in parts of the US yet to yield a Scrabble opponent for me. Writing to clubs and a banner on the e-Scrabble site I play on has produced 60+ responses. Quite a few of these are a long way from my route, as I can't wiggle about endlessly and have to get across the continent before the winter comes. There are maybe 20 on the route so far, which leaves over 50 still to find. Here goes!
