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.

We mentioned that we are staying with Virgil and Susan currently. They were kind enough to offer us a vacant rental property (below market value) to rent for as long as we are here.

Virgil has been called a ‘National Treasure’ by a few folks (including his doctor). It turns out, there aren’t many Virgils left. We were fortunate to catch him in his fine duds this afternoon. The girls took some pictures and did a short video with him.

We are proud to say that we met Virgil. Not just that, but have gotten to know him. Our children have gotten to know him. We are all better for that.

We have a couple of new pages that will be added soon. One of them will be about adventures. The other a pixel page. They should be of interest to you.

Good night friends.

  1. 24 miles in one day, and I thought running a 5k was hard. I like what you have been writing and I love that I can sort of follow you guys on your journey. Keep the great posts coming and I will continue to read your inspiring articles.

  2. I have to second the guy that commented, I love your posts and what you and your family have been doing. I like reading about real life adventures and your posts are short and sweet but I love them.
