About Bob Kasper

150 years ago a young Mark Twain was vagabondizing in the West, his crazyguyonabike journal subsequently published as "Roughing It."  In it, Twain wrote:  “The moral of [this book] is this: If you are of any account, stay at home and make your way by faithful diligence; but if you are "no account," go away from home, and then you will *have* to work, whether you want to or not. Thus you become a blessing to your friends by ceasing to be a nuisance to them - if the people you go among suffer by the operation."

It is time for me to vagabondize on a cross-country bike tour and become a "no account.”  Time to quit the dreary 9 to 5 government gig, sell off the belongings, saddle up, and hit the trail West with a great team for a great cause!  Here's hoping I don't cause undue suffering to those I go among.
