Day 63 Through Riders

Ennis, MT to Twin Bridges, MT via Virginia Cityb and Nevada City

Today 43.8 miles

Total 3,426.1

“Through Riders” is a term I first heard today, though it has been something I’ve been aware of, in one way or another, since joining the Trans America Route. Everyday, we meet bicycle tourists traveling in both directions. They can be identified by their garish, dayglo, attire and the fact that their bikes are packed with gear (this, of course, includes yours truly). Generally, we stop and chat, unless one or the other off us is coasting on a downhill and refuses to relinquish even a smidgen of momentum. Again, this includes yours truly! When we talk, the same questions are always asked. Where are you from, where and when did you start, and where are you headed. Today, this lead to the term “through rider”, meaning coast to coast (similar to “through hiker” on the Appalachian Trail). The term creates a kind of hierarchy which belittles those ” heading 6 or 700 miles up the road to Pueblo”. I’ve heard people say, ” I’m only going to Missouri” and then explain themselves by saying they have commitments in late July. Such is human nature I guess.

Our campsite behind Willies last night. We showered with the hose. A thunder storm came through around 11pm.

Willie’s delivery truck. His father was a bootlegger during Prohibition!

Heading for the bathroom at the City Park this morning

“Through Riders” Jerry 71 and Lois 65, heading for South Carolina! When I asked how their marriage was surviving the trip, they both pointed at each other and said “Wah, wah, wah”!

Mike and Charlie heading into Virginia City, MT

Allison refuses to get one for our house!

That’s my bike of course!

      1. hope the quake did not affect you too much. Heard there was a medium size one close to you.

  1. Did you expect to meet so many others with similar goals and expectations? As you are closing in on the last states, ahead of schedule it seems, was it all that you had expected and hoped for?

  2. I have so enjoyed every minute of your trip….so has your probably oldest fan, my mom, who will be 95 in August. She starts her day with your travel log!

    You have made incredible progress and I can’t think of a more exciting 4th of July after spending 2 months traveling this great nation. Wind, rain, and even an earthquake hasn’t stopped you. Way to go Pat!!!!

  97. Hi there, I do think your blog could possibly be having browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, fantastic site!

  102. First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do
    not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Appreciate it!

  104. Definitely consider that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the
    web the simplest factor to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t
    recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
    Thank you
