Kentucky & Southern Indiana, I am surprised & actually kind-of impressed:
Want to go through the country on an epic journey, without getting too hot or too cold? Well, you pretty much will be coming through our region/state, won'cha? That's just what this nutjob had to do. While bicycle tourist dollars are not going to single-handedly revive our economy, it's nice to have these folks coming through. Nothing in life is more fun than rolling into an new town on your bicycle and finding an open diner or grocery store.
