    I am the wife of the laundry challenged cyclist, and the mother of the author. I’m looking forward to the book because then I will hear the real story. Hope you guys are still having fun!

    Missed Allans call today, but did hear from him yesterday. They were in a place called Crescent City, California. It is located on the North California coast just 20 miles south of the Oregon border. They were staying at the Curly Redwood Lodge. The coastal weather temperature was a breezy 60 degrees (or around there) I believe it was laundry day for some who chose to wear underwear. He said today would be a tough ride. They are all in good health and good spirits.
    We miss you


    P.S. Cindy wants to know how your blisters are and Shelley wants to make sure that good luck charm is working.

    Hey there,
    As a relative outsider, I have to say “way to go guys” on an amazing venture! I work for PJ’s brother, Warren, so I knew a bit about the trip but to see it unfolding on this site is great!
    As a novice, but now very inspired cyclist, I feel for you (well, ok, I am female and haven’t gone commando on the bike, so maybe not to the same degree!). Can’t wait to read the book! Keep at ‘er!

  12. I go 30 days without underwear all the time. Maybe I can start a reality TV show. lol. Anyways, I can’t tell you how proud I am of you guys. You’re all in better shape than I am. Looks like you’re having a great time. We all enjoy the pictures and the updates, so keep ’em comin’.

    Hi everyone, today’s update is: they are in Giberville?? California some 200 miles north of San Francisco, They have another big hill coming tomorrow so they are resting, the one hill mentioned last report turned out to be 6.5 miles long !!!! Al said it was kind of like going up Wildwood hill only 10 times longers (+/-). Sore ankles and the sore R (ass) h, otherwise everyone is safe and sound, keep up the great you guys , 1500 kms down and 1300 more to go,
    “ride like the wind grasshoppers” be careful and have fun!

    Whoops, I forgot to mention that Alan wanted Shelley to know that the good luck charm (Angel) is working and he appreciates her giving it to him. It has kept them safe and he makes sure he has it with him daily.

    Hi ya Allan
    I was thinking about you guys the other day as I was out biking in the rain. Thinking putting on sun screen is way more enjoyable than putting on rain gear. Is there any rubber left on thoes tires? As I was going to say tread, but there was none to start with!!! Keep up the good work. Regards from the MacKenzie Clan.

  20. Hi Gang-
    Usually I envy a cyclist who has got a day off of work and is riding while I labor away, stuck in the shop. You guys have all carved a chunk of time out of your lives for this trip and given us true reason for envy! Congrats!
    I was wondering:

    on those big downhills
    a) sitting up and coasting
    b) head down and hammering in the big gear

    for enegy
    a) candy bar
    b) banana

    first thing at the end of long day in the saddle
    a) a hot shower
    b) a cold beverage

    Keep the rubber side down.

    Hi Real and Janine and the rest of the commando crew. Keep those pedals moving and pictures comming.

  22. Karen Williams

    So proud of you, sounds like everything is going great for you guys.
    While you are biking your butts off, I am sitting on mine at school all day!!
    Anyways, just wanted to say “Hello” and to have fun on the rest of your trip.
    Ta Ta For Now,

    Hi Gruncle Al (great uncle) Is grandma really MUCH younger than you? Put some underwear on everyone, pleeeease?!?!?!?! (Sometimes there is just too much information!) Grandma showed me this website and I wanted to write a letter thingy. I think it is neat what you old-ins are doing. Good luck and ride safe everybody.
    From your greice Jesika (great 11-year-old neice.)

    Its good to hear from you!

    (A) Hills? It is a crime to waste a good investment in elevation ( unless of course you are on a mountain bike and dont have big gears

    (B) energy? a Banana to start of course but they dont travel well ,so Power bars keep ya going…unless of course there is beer available.

    (C)End of day? How about a cold beer IN the shower.

    Thanks for the comments…We have made good use of the tools, cables, tubes, and spokes.
    see you soon
