Back in the 'Burgh

Home again. When I woke up the other morning I felt as thought I had just had a wonderful dream about going on a bike trip. It almost seemed unreal and from another time and place. I think that is part of what I love about the bike trips other than the scenery, helping others and many other things; its outside of normal time and space. Life is simplified and a wonderful break from the normal routine.

This was especially true since I lost my phone and was "disconnected" from our now traditional forms of communication. Because of that I also neglected sharing the tales of the road which I hope to do over the next few weeks. I know that sharing this way might limit the immediate feeling of participating in the adventure. But I hope the stories will be sweeter because I will have actually had time to process what I share.

On the beach in San Diego, we made it!
So stay tuned and thank you so much for all your support! We are a team and together we raised $3700 to help Pennsylvania families! Thanks again!

Strawberries!

Today we rode through the strawberry fields and saw them picked. I love seeing how things are made! (grown) The picture included is from a strawberry package in Pittsburgh and today's strawberries were the same brand. It was really cool to see thing first hand. And for the record strawberry fields smell a thousand times better than those with livestock. :)
