Bill and Kathleen's TransAmerica trip, summer of 2014

Commenting is closed

Congratulations!!!!!!!

Down the homestretch! Beautiful Oregon all the way now to the coast. I'm preparing for the withdrawal of not checking in daily to see how u r doing!

127 miles? Yowzers. Tell Bill I very much appreciate the Union Pacific pix. I miss the constant sounds of switch yard at North Platte. Are you seeing the very, very long coal trains? Full ones headed east; empty cars headed back to WY. I'll wave today as i fly overhead en route to SF for NAAHP advising mtg

Amazing! Thx for the Platte river picture! Jaw dropped yesterday to realize you were already in WY!

Happy 30th! The Rockies are just up the road!

As u approach Garden City, you'll be due south of north platte!! Santa Fe trail? Awesome. At least your tandem makes far more than12-13 miles a day, avoids rutted trails/mud, understandably hostile comanches, and lurking cholera. Moreover it doesn't require caretaking of oxen -- just a dedicated stoker!

The western meadowlarks will now cheer you onward thru Kansas!

You guys are amazing! I love reading the narratives of the adventure you're on!! Sending lot's of love from all of us in California!

Hi Kathleen, Hi Bill, It's nice to see that YOU are having a good time. love, Joli, your sweet and lonely kitty

Already enjoying following your trip of a lifetime! Pedal on knowing I'm sending thoughts of a tail wind each day (wish I could deliver a tail wind -- but must acknowledge my limits)! Best wishes from the Shenandoah Valley. Safe travels.
