    Woo hoo! Congratulations on finishing your trip! Sorry we have been playing telephone tag… I have your keys… You will be good to go!

    WOO-WOO! Chuck…amigo, you have arrived at the US/Mexican border safe, sound, and ahead of your predicted number-of-days traveled deadline. Good On and Congratulations many times over. We should have given you a San Juan Island flag to plant on the border’s dotted line. Now, we all wonder when and in what manner you’ll be returning to the island? I say you’re going to trade you bike in for a surf board and head to the Baja for the winter, but the locker room thinks you’ll ship your bike home and come along with it. Either way, you’re the pride of the San Juans and we look forward to your safe return. Great Trip, thanks for taking us along!

    Hey! Congratulations on a sometimes tough trip.
    So good to see the photo of Martha and MaryAnn on their own bikes!
    You’ll have to get used to the chilly weather when you return to Friday Harbor. We’ve had pea soup fog and drippy mist for days.

    Congratulation, Chuck! So proud of you! When will you return to FH?

    • Chuck,

      We have been following you since meeting you at the shop on the day of your departure. We are all pretty impressed here in western North Carolina, and thankful for your safe journey.

      Pete, Amy and the kids
