The Lost Coast

Riding through the Redwoods was spectacular. We pedaled through massive trees in old growth forests and saw many animals, including this impressive buck. It was extremely windy leaving Arcata, pushing us 35 miles to Ferndale. The tiny historic town is the perfect entry into the lost coast. Fitzroy had an ear infection so we stayed another … More The Lost Coast

Island Adventures

Thankful to be on the road again and eager to see Alvin and tell him of my good luck in Whitehorse, I drove most of the way down the Cassiar.

Sun and soy beans

Day 5 – from Fremont, OH This morning I’m spoiled with wifi and coffee in the town of Fremont. I was going to head to Cedar Point today and ride the rollarcoasters but there is too much of a chance for thunderstorms, so my inner twelve year old will have to be satisfied with the … More Sun and soy beans
