    It’s great to hear some real story. Really wonderful. A few quotes from a lecture Collyn did last winter at the DoLecture: “Adventure isn’t a trip you take, it’s everything you do.” “Don’t just tell your stories, Do your stories.”
    We are getting our share of that big mothah of a storm front. Rained hard!! all day Saturday. It’s raining right now as I get ready for work. We had our first head injury rental bike accident yesterday….a girl hit a metal grate on Argyle, fell and struck her head. May have broken her nose. Were it not for that crash, we’d have had a perfect year. I think she’ll be alright.

    Rest assured that the weather you have experienced has been hanging out on San Juan for three days so we’re thinking what the heck are you doing riding in that crap? With 63 miles to the border of cool, bitch’n Cal, you’ll be in sun, roses, more taxes and ‘different’ peeps in short order. Keep your wheels on the right side of the road and look out for everyone on the road…’ll see them before they see you. At least that’s the defensive way to ride the road. Ride safe, buddy.

    Hi Chuck,
    Neither wind, nor rain nor hail shall stop you on this ride! We’re doing a sun dance for you for the rest of your ride.
