Pre-trip: Driving to Florida for the big ride.

Friday and Saturday

Roger, May and I are on our way to Florida, the start of our cross country bicycle tour. It hasn't even started yet, but I'm already behind on posts. Friday we crossed Oregon to Boise Idaho.

The drive was long, but I love the rugged remote region of Eastern Oregon. Roger and I bicycled about 20 miles along the highway to keep the legs and lungs somewhat in shape for what is to come. We had a great tailwind and an even greater average.

We met another bicycle tourist out in remote Eastern Oregon. She had a big load and a long way to go. We offered her a ride to Boise where she could catch up on some chores, take a rest day and plan the next leg of her trip. Happy Journeys Chelsea!

Chelsea, on her way to New York state.

Saturday was strictly a driving day. We were on the interstate all day with no suitable place to bicycle. Roger and May thought it would be great to put in some extra miles putting us closer to some of the national parks in southern Utah. With that in mind we drove as far as Price Utah, where we spent the night.

    Price, Utah. I've spent a lot of time in that town back in the late 70s (for work).
