Demetri was another roadie we ran into just outside of San Diego who slowed to our snail pace to chat. We talked about ultra running and touring as my heart was exploding to keep up to him as we climbed a hill at walking pace. He was one of many roadies we ran into on our way into San Diego and it was the best welcome we’ve had to a big city so far.

John in Orcutt, for inviting a couple of strangers in off the road and sharing your love of beautiful automobiles.
Frederic our warm showers host in Lompoc, a man with exceptional taste in very fine wines and the funniest dog in the world.
Kellie and Dave our warm showers hosts in LA, who provided a much needed reprieve after cycling through Compton in the dark.

Mom and Kelly for coming out to Oxnard to visit and drink wine and eat too much food and everything really.
