50 States!!! Congratulations!!!!

Hey, y'all! My name is Nathan, and I ran into Breezy, Squeeze, Strider, & Mama from Seattle, who say they camped with you in Tetons N.P. and wanted to leave you a message! We're in the Florida Keys right now, and they're just about to finish their journey!
Great job making it to Alaska! Best wishes from your fellow biking friends!

Hey we camped with u at tetons

Just found out about you two. You probably went by my place in Greenbelt MD on April 15th.
Going to Alaska? I've taken a bike on the ferries and know some friendly people there with houses in Anchorage and cabins, drop me a line.
Mike aka Horse with No Name

You two are some of the neatest people we have ever met! Was an honor to have you stay in Larry Stripey. We will keep you in our prayers! Ride on Jenny and Ontwa!

Respect to you both. Your tour makes my present journey look pretty tame.
Have you worked out a way to reply to individual comments within the app? I would like to be able to do that but have not found a way.
Regards
Mark

This is seriously amazing. I am a map guy, and am so happy to have seen this finally! Not sure how I missed it, but keep it up and I can't wait to make the coolest map ever for you guys when you're done!!

NYC Times Square! Cool!

Wow! Cool tour.

You blessed me with your stop for water. I will be praying for your safety as you continue your journey. You are truly awesome. Please e-mail me when you reach Connecticut and let me know you made it safely. curryfarmsupply@#windstream.net. I would love to hear from you.

Congratulations on reaching New Mexico!

I spoke with you outside the IGA in Heber today (Jan. 25) about the elevation and road to Holbrook. I couldn't stop thinking about your adventure and just had to do a Google search for a couple bike-riding through all 50 states. My very best wishes to you for a safe journey and success in your mission. I'll be following along.

Take a shower!

Can't wait to see the pictures!!

Im so excited for you guys- Watched you on the San Diego news on your Dads computer Adam, So Awesome!!! He is so Proud of you both and we all are too!!!!! Continue with great success!!!!! Keep posting!!!!! :)
