yesss first day is complete!

Writing from this small blackberry, apologies for spelling errors!

We started our day by racing to the train, pictures in the ocean meant waves in our shoes….oops!

We knew it was going be tough but didn’t know what it was going to feel like.

We had a steady climb for most of the day, at times crawling at 5mph.

We’ve already run into someone else riding cross country to florida as well! Love adventurous spirits, we’re camping together tonight

We stoped for the night in alpine. Sun burnt, shaky legs and not ready for an intense 16 mile climb sharing the interstate. The local bike shop kindly let us throw our tents in their back lot.

No dogs today, a few close calls with not- so lovable cars.

The mtns are beautiful. Soo green and spatter with bright flower farms.

Appreciate all the kind words today, we definitely needed them as we rolled up the mtns!

    Read about your story in the Des Moines Register. I graduated from Osage in the mid 80’s, but now live in Urbandale IA. Wish I was with you guys. That first day had to be a big change from the flat farmlands of northern Iowa. Got snow here Tuesday night. Hope to get on my bike this weekend. Riding a trainer inside just isn’t the same as enjoying the outdoors. Good luck and God’s speed.
