1068 miles in ?? hours (If someone wants to calculate this feel free – assume 8 hours saddle time for day 1).
I thought that it would be nice to give you guys, particularly the late comers, an overview of the first two parts of my trip today – and to give shout outs to some particularly helpful people. It is hard to believe that I have already done over 1000 miles, but there it is. There have been times of immense nervousness (I was down to my last tube just 15 miles out of Surprise – 300 miles to the next bike shop), weariness (the night trip to Desert Center), but mostly just joy and wonder, which is what I wanted. I have been in California for three weeks, it is time for me to move on and see the rest of the country. I hope you all come along with me.
