A New Adventure for a Librarian

Topic: 

Laurie Chipps quit her library job and abandoned her apartment and her many friends to explore new avenues....on a bike.

But Chipps, 36, said she still wasn't happy — a state that led to her decision to ride a bicycle 4,229 miles across the United States. Chipps' trip — which will take her from Yorktown, Virginia, through 10 states before ending in Astoria, Oregon, — begins today.

"I'm kind of ready to trade all the concrete for more forests and streams," Chipps said. "I'll try to put it simply: I had everything in my life, but a couple of years ago, I felt unhappy and not content with what I had."
