I’ve decided to try to transfer some of our bike journals and pictures over to my blog. There’s a lot. Wish me luck. And be sure to check back once in a while for the continuing stories.
Bike Trip 2002
This was our first trip on the quad (4-person) bicycle. We all journaled as much as I could force make happen. The spelling of the kids is unedited (with some translations in parenthesis). They were 7 and 8 years old at the time.

Jb: Left Dr. Al’s at 8:50. Spent pretty much the whole day walking up hills. Stopped for ice cream and met up with Richard. Helpful, nice, old man. He kept hanging around and even following us around…even out to the state park. He gave us directions and bought us coke, ice and cake treats. Must be lonely. Must’ve been after 5:00 by the time we got into the campsite. We ate salad, tomatoes, blueberries, and bagels for dinner. Too late to go over swimming. I went to bed early. DH took the kids up to the shower and then they played in the tent while he showered. Woman next door is temporarily living here with her adult mentally disabled child.
