Australian. Living in the United States. Writing. Riding. Living. Those are not in order. Those three things blend together to form me. Take it or leave it.

But always ride on.

    i’ve enjoyed reading your blog.

    Similar to our friend David of Sufferfest, we are doing some first person video stuff but more in the mountain bike, adventure racing categories.

    I would be real interested in your review of our stuff. Let me know if you’re interested and we will get you set up.


    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Just came across your blog from a twitter list and wanted to let you know it’s gorgeous! Awesome design. Good luck with your trip. I’m heading out on a 6 month motorcycle trip to Alaska and back down next week. Will keep up your posts as I can.

    Nice meeting you today after the G.W. Bridge. There’s no contact e-mail for you.
    I started a New York Cycle Club Message Board forum on your topic:

    And I’ve sent your web site info. to two friends who cycled across country recently – Michael and Maggie.

    Have a great trip!

    I’m not a tweeter person (working on it though…tag heiferbison). You had a tweet today about ‘NOT Taking cooking gear. Consider taking the stove, a small bottle of fuel, a spoon and a meter cup. Seek comfort on a cold wet ride…Knorr’s chicken soup or such (tea).
    You will be meeting people while camping, to ask for a small amt of fuel is not a big deal.

    I’ve truly enjoyed following your blog since I watched your 100 miles to nowhere last year. Your accident was most unfortunate, but I sense that you will be back on the road soon and can’t wait to hear more reports of your travels. Ride on!

    I love your story, I found it by reading Fatty’s blog today and shot over during the lunch hour. I’ll have to go home tonight and catch up on the story; I feel like I’m getting interested in Lost on the last episode. I see references to “TransAmerica” a couple times. Is that a reference to just your ride or to some mapping and planning guide. I hope you get better soon and resume your trek.

    Warm Regards,

    Boy when you Aussies crash you do it right. No half measures with that one. Hope you are doing OK with the turmoil. But chin up – you will be back riding in no time and can put the smack down on the crash demons in your past.

    Love reading your posts and vids. Good luck mending fast!

    Hi Noodle

    Sorry to hear you are injured… reading your blog via Fatty. Love to hear the Aussie/American accent… I’m from N.Z. and have followed Fatty for a while now… Go kick some arse (when your wrist is no longer kicked LOL)

    Hey Janeen,

    Fellow Aussie here! Wishing you all the best and I’ve helped a little by posting an article on Digital Buzz – http://www.digitalbuzzblog.com/precious-the-bike-with-a-brain-for-livestrong/

    Love it.

    Hey Janeen,

    I just sent you a note on twitter. I rode across in ’06. We followed a similar route to Colorado into Utah, but then headed south and eventually made our way to San Diego.

    When you get to Kansas look for a town called Cassoday. Once there, check out Cassoday Cafe. It’s an all you can eat buffet. GREAT food and people. Ask for the peanut butter pie. I’ll check my journal when I get home for other reco’s.

    It’s not an easy trip. And the idea of giving up will creep into your thoughts. Often. Just take it one day at a time.

    Keep pushing and pulling those pedals!!!!

    It looks like your route is on the Katy Trail in Missouri. I talked to my wife, if you would like a warm shower and a soft bed when you are near Columbia, MO. Let me know.
    Keep the faith and keep rolling.

    Found you today…thanks for all you are doing. I lost my son Todd last month, his wife a husband, his children a father. Cancer sucks. Livestrong was there for us and through you I am here for Livestrong.

    Hey Janeen- Just saw you pulled into Summersville, MO. My old home town. Graduated from SHS in 1987. Small town but great people. Enjoy your incredible adventure- my husband and I follow you everday. Its an incredible thing your doing – I lost my Grandpa this last February – he was a wonderful man – Great sense of humor just like your writing. LIVSTRONG!!

    This is the BEST blog design I’ve seen. I am amazed that Janeen has the energy to WRITE after the long days she’s putting in. And she writes very well. What a gal!!

    I would love to know more about the “team” (God, I hope there’s one!) that’s supporting her. Is it all virtual?

    Also, it would be nice to have more detail on the map on the yesiamprecious.com page.

    Hey Janeen, a fellow Fatty here. I am jealous of you! I SO want to bike across America. I live in the Denver Metro area of Colorado. If you need a place to sleep, shower, and eat call me! I’ll drive to where ever and bring to my house. 303.467.1783. Hope you don’t mind cats.Linda

    Hey Janeen, you are so awesome! Just saw the finish picture, wonderful. Wish I was there to greet you, and buy dinner. If you are going to be in Seattle, let me know. It was because of you I did the “100 miles of Nowhere” ride this year. Amazing, simply amazing. I am so excited and proud of you. Loved reading all of your blogs and seeing all the pictures. Job well done!!!

    I’ve really enjoyed your Transamerican adventures!

    Congratulations on getting Precious and Zimmerman to the beach, and on raising all that money for a great cause!

    Looking forward to the novel, and your next epic adventure (I can’t wait to see where you are taking us next!)

    All the best!

    Hey Janeen,
    here’s Sebastian, the German guy you met at the border to Kentucky…I just wanted to congratulate! You can be extremely proud…you really made it!
    I was not so lucky…The heat in Kentucky was at some point just too much for me and the milage I wanted to make every day was perhaps also a bit too much. However, at some point I decided not to suffer any more and rented a car for the remaining miles to San Francisco. It was nevertheless a nice trip, although I was of course quite disappointed about myself being not as a tough rider as I thought. But you are! And again you can be extremely proud of yourself, that you made that trrip all on your own.
    Whenever you should come to Germany leave me a message…I’d really like to ride some more miles with you!

    all the best from Freiburg (Germany)

    Noodleator, I want to thank you for linking me to Hyperbole and a Half. Now I have something to read & ponder this winter awaiting you book & next adventure.
    Now you are stuck in my mind’s eye as the Nadle’s friend, the serious half.

    Someone refered me to your blog because I have a dream, and you may be just the one who can help me with it!

    I would like to travel from Vancouver to Montreal (Canada) by bicycle in 1 year and a half from now.

    I am not in top shape, but believe I have plenty of time to train before the trip. Do you have any tips for me, on successful work outs?

    I’d love to hear back from you,

    Hi Janeen,
    I came across you and your blog on Dailymile, for they have logged you as one of the most funniest riders.

    I really love your blog, your style of writing. I started cycling quite recently, that is when I moved to a new city (Bangalore, India), mostly to kill time.

    But after reading your deeds I am both filled with excitement and awe.

    You are great, Its awesome to see someone doing what she loves. For most of us its just a dream.

    Janeen, I’ve some things I would like to send you. The items are new…oops 1 isn’t and i’m not sure all will fit (one will for sure…it is aimed at Precious, just to keep him in line).
    I you are still in Portland, could I send the small express box to the Monaco Hotel (tomorrow, shipping)?
    I’m sure you have visited River City Cycles, just north of the Monaco.
