Jenner to Santa Rosa

     Leaving the coast was a much needed break from hills and from the dew filled air. The coast has such a dramatically different feel than even 5-10 miles inland. Jenner was beautiful, we met a man that owned the community center, and he let us stay at it. Everyone in the town of…

Biking WA – Mukilteo to Bellingham

  Rain started as a sprinkle as we drifted beyond the trees and the rivers and streams. Light playful rejuvenating rain.

What a different experience it has been since we hit Santa Barbara. Next was Malibu, we camped on a hill near a construction site and behind a grocery store that’s was settled in a little forest. We actually door knocked for a little bit asking million dollar home intercoms if they had space for 3 tents. It…
