    Hey Chuck,
    You are now in my old stomping ground from my teen years. The Gualala River used to be a superb steelhead river, was destroyed by out-of-control logging and too much fishing, but is now recovering. Hope you enjoy your ride through the wonderful redwood country. It is so special.
    Taking a short day was good. Best to not “hammer” every day. Stop and enjoy where you are.
    So good to also read the posts of others. Lots of people are following your progress.
    As you approach the Bay Area, get super paranoid about your bike. Bike theft is rampant!
    Cheers,
    Paul

    I’m speaking to a group of CEOs in Tampa today. I told them about you and your ride — you’re their hero! Mine, too.

    Sounds like you took your own good advice, and today was a great day for you. You’ve done so amazingly well so far, and the more south, the weather should be pleasant and the views outrageous. So close to the Golden Gate! But a town named Gualala? Sounds like a fake name full of brothels to me….
    Ride on, friend. What you’re doing is amazing and crazy good…and an inspiration to us all!

    Chuck,
    Are you pedaling towards Big Sur? Gotta do some time on the coast route and take in that invigorating salt air! So glad you’re safe and still ‘rock’n” Keep it churning, we’re with you all the way. Good chatter in the locker room on your adventure. Ride safe, buddy.

    We had two wonderful days on island, but now the cruddy weather has come back. Still hoping for a few good days before trading the outdoors for the indoors.

    Downhill is good!

    Do the Cali girls all whistle at your biker calves as you roll by?
