Coastline Crawl, May 09

Kierstyn and I spent 2 weeks bicycle camping from Eugene, OR, south towards San Francisco.  We got wet.  We got dry.  We had blazing sunshine.  We had chilly fog.  We had RVs the size of small mountains skim past our handlebars.  We had long downhills and what felt like longer uphills.  And we had folks like Mike who treated us to not only a campsite in his pasture but also a bottle of wine and firewood.  An excellent connection with the world.  Enjoy the images below.  Also, see Kierstyn's Picassa Album.  And also a little map showing our route.
