In other news, my rear hub started to sound a little grindy 100+ miles ago, I thought it would make it to Santa Cruz where we planned to take a few days off. Wrong again. Within a few miles of leaving San Francisco my hub went from constant nails on a chalk board screaming to silent to dead. That was the moment that one of the sealed bearing units failed and turned my hub into a blender full of metal bits… Lovely. So we carried on.
Tara and Patrick and Everest – For looking after us in Santa Cruz, taking us sailing, feeding us, and always making sure we were always fully caffeinated.
Tom – For giving us a terrible tour of Napa, a terrible fancy dinner, a terrible conversation, a terrible day really :)
Rob – Our Warm Showers host in San Francisco. Not only did we have a beautiful place to stay in the heart of the city but Rob’s two cats (Brad & Debbie) were over the top snugglers
