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.
You can check out his blog at simplespokes.com.
We broke down and bought a GoPro Hero3. We probably should have picked one up earlier, but we were new to the concept of taking a bicycle and pedaling it across the United States of America. Enough said.
So, why did we pick up a GoPro Hero3 camera now? Glad you asked. We are gearing up for some more adventures, just not on bikes. Maybe.
Our children are getting older and we aren’t getting any younger.
Can you blame us?
Our picture may not be your picture. We understand. But, we also understand that now is what we have. This is how we choose to spend our ‘now’.
What does all that mean?
We will be putting the GoPro to good use. We will be torpedoing our Bucket List. We will be uploading the adventures as we go.
A smart friend mentioned that it would be nice if he could subscribe to our site to be informed of new posts.
We decided we would put his input to good use and give readers a heads up when we have a new post. You will notice a subscription form on the sidebar. If you want updates…subscribe!
We would also like to ask a favor that requires less than 30 seconds of your time.
One of the ways we funded our odyssey was by trading some of our things for the awesome experience to come. The majority of our funding came when we sold our Jeep Wrangler.
Another way we did (and do) turn a dollar is by our readers doing their Amazon shopping using our link on the sidebar. We will be mentioning this occasionally because it costs you nothing while earning a few cents for us. Please put the link in your favorites and use it when you shop Amazon.
If only 30 of our readers did this, it would help. If 60 of our readers did this, it would make a difference. If 100 of our readers did this and invited their friends to do it also, well, we would buy an island and let you live there. Okay, not quite. But, it would help.
Dakota and Luke are doing well plugging back in to school. The piano will be tuned on Thursday. They are working with me to learn a song. They are hard teachers.
The hospitality of Virgil and Susan has been remarkable. We thought they would have tired of a boring family like ourselves, but, not as of yet. Each evening we share a meal with them.
A war hero husband. A doctor wife. Good company.
