Some stories for lunch time

So we are stopped for lunch now and I thought I would share with you some of the people we have met the last few days.

Yesterday some dude stopped on his bike to start chatting with me. Turns out he just got done with a 9 month stint going from canada to mexio the across the US or arround it not sure wich. He just got back 2 months ago.

Yesterday again this older than me guy 60s I think pulls up next to us with a set of panniers and touring gear. We were in torry pines at that point (san diego) and he had ridden down from Santa Cruz. He averaged 85 miles a day! He said he was just in town to visit his grandson for a while. Wow what an inspiration. He told us he did the same trek we are doing back in 2001. His advice, "cross country is more ental than physical". Well I guess I am looking forward to those mind games.

More to follow

More "ental than physical"? Ok, guess you've got an excuse...you ARE riding a ridiculous number of miles a day. On a bike. Across the country.

He!
