4,000 Feet

Wow. Three summit passes and 4,000 feet of vertical climbing in one day. I did break the speed limit going down the other side of one summit when I hit 40 mph. That was fun. Tomorrow we enter the wilderness of western Idaho. According to the maps it appears the next 2-3 days we probably won't have cell phone contact, internet contact or a wireless connection.

Breaking the speed limit. . . hmmm . . . I wonder if a bicyclist could be ticketed? We shall certainly miss you and Mary's updates over the next couple of days. It sort of reminds me of space ships losing contact with Mission Control. Continued Blessings!

The Wilderness of western Idaho. Oh, dear! Are you riding through trees, trees, and more trees? Dark with decaying logs and too much undergrowth? Watch out for bears...and Bigfoot.

Great blog! Sounds like you are off to a great start on your journey and enjoying the little steps and interactions along the way. The pictures and Mary's blog are just great as well. Wishing you safety and enjoyment back here in GR!
