Drive, Hike, Run, Ride!
; In looking forward to touring in 2021 I've decided, instead of taking the train to St. Louis for last years' deferred tour, I'll drive! I plan to visit some national parks, do some hiking and some trail running along the way. For a person who doesn't enjoy long drives, I'll load up on audio books and limit the number of driving hours per day, making for a longer crossing.
I bought an atlas and with several tour books on National Parks; I'm looking forward to visiting Death Valley, Grand Canyon, and others, car camping my way to St. Louis. When I arrive in St. Louis, a gracious WarmShowers host will allow me to park my car at their house for the 700 some miles of my bicycle tour.
All the planning for the bicycle tour was already done and with a few tweaks, I'll be ready to hit the Katy Trail and beyond.

I've pedaled from St. Louis to the Katy Trail's endpoiint. I cycled back to Sedalia and hopped aboard the train back to St. Louis. I gave my (loaded) bike to the baggage person who hoisted it into the baggage car for its journey. (He was a montrously powerful person who made it look easy :-)

Thanks for checking in, Ray! I've had past experience loading/unloading from Amtrak but this time, it's riding all the way.
