Being on the road for 71 days and with less than two weeks to go, our thoughts today, turned to home. We all admitted that we missed our wives and family and were ready to get back into the normal routine of family life. The trip has been great, more fun than I expected, but living life with a single focus (pedaling West) is, in it’s own way, limiting. Our effort everyday is the same, get up at dawn and start pedaling, determine where to stop for food and lodging and keep pedaling. When we get to our destination, we plan the next day. We look at the distances, elevations, weather and wind. At this point I long, not only, for a return to family life, but the variety that such a life brings.
