Strange that it’s difficult to find time to write, when I don’t have a job to work around. Packing, riding, socializing, messing with my phone, eating, drinking, and socializing some more, take a lot of time. Pat Doody and I rode from Carlsbad, CA to San Diego yesterday and I’m now camped at Dave Buckley’s and Beth… Continue reading San Diego!
I haven’t written since Oct. 16th! I’ve been busy- cycling, hiking, eating, drinking, talking, exploring!:) Today, Oct. 30th, I’m in Java Love Roasting Company in Sedona, AZ, with Jenny.

We’ve been together for a… Continue reading Filling in the blanks…

I’m in Avila Beach, CA, sough of the lovely town of San Luis Obispo, home of California Polytechnic Institute. A friend of Brian Smallwood’s bought us a beautiful… Continue reading Quick update!
Joost (yoost) and Marion Linders, from The Netherlands, just make me smile. We crossed paths eight times between the Interurban Trail in Seattle and lunch in Mendocino, CA. When Murray and I met them in Seattle, I said, “You don’t have hills in The Netherlands!” “Yes, we do,” said Joost.”We have one.” 🙂 They are… Continue reading Joost and Marion
I arrived yesterday about 6 p.m. I had pushed hard, 142 miles in two days, to get here. I was motivated by the thought of the lovely home of Lisa and Bob Mayer in which to rest in SF, by a shower and washing machine, and by seeing friends Maryn Juergens (Steve and Peggy Sue’s daughter) and… Continue reading San Francisco!
I can’t get the picture cropped successfully, but you’ll get the idea (and Mark Rakes will tell me how to fix the picture. 🙂 In August, Jenny Wayman and I were on our way back from Sandpoint and we passed a cyclist walking his bike along highway 95. In search of good cycling karma, we stopped… Continue reading And we meet again…
