We made it!
From Canada to Mexico - down the west coast, for the most part. With some stretches on the interior of Oregon and through the southern California desert - just for kicks.

Updates were made as we traveled on our journey adding text entries, pix, and videos. As with previous journals, read at your own risk-- language and content is spontaneous and at times gramatically correct. But this will give you a taste of what we went through. Overall it was about 1950 miles from border to border. All in 22 days of biking. Plus 2 rest days (one in Portland and one in San Fran).
