I again have spent many hours this weekend reading Crazy Guy on A Bike. I think I’m on my 5th journal this weekend. I’ve read enough journals now that I recognize names from other journals that people meet on their trip.
At bedtime Sunday evening I was reading the journal of Three Retirees Westbound on the TransAm when this line jumped out at me. “”After we chatted with some folks in the Sedalia motel about our trek, Bill overheard one of them comment “I think he’s older than us!”. My favorite quote of the trip so far. I feel like I’m about 45 or so but, at 68, am probably older than most of the people we’re meeting. Age really doesn’t matter.”” That’s the way I feel.
Three Retirees was one of the better journals I read covering a long distance and doing a fantastic job of covering the picturesque changes in the land and people across the USA. Good job Curtis, Don and Bill. I enjoyed your trip.
