This Week On Four the Road: GoPro Hero3, A Pal, A Favor

It has almost been one month since our bikes and bodies touched the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean.

We have kept in touch with many of the awesome people we met along the way. Our friend Gil will be hitting Europe on his recumbent bike in the Spring. Eric Ewing and Makani (Tucson) just started training for the RAGBRAI. They are planning on not only pedaling the RAGBRAI, but to RAGBRAI (Iowa) from Arizona. Eric needs to shed a pound or two and is using this journey to reclaim a piece of his past, while intentionally creating his future.

Eric and Makani before claiming their destiny!

This Week On Four the Road: In San Diego with a War Hero and Some Bicycling

So, here we are.

The most miles we have done in one day the last two weeks has been about 24. It isn’t much, but we can attest to there being some hills in San Diego County.

We are staying on a ridge. When we do any shopping, laundry, etc., it usually requires going down and up several serious hills. But hey, we aren’t complaining (maybe a little).

We have been to the ocean only once but that is soon to change.
