Over at www.crazyguyonabike.com tonight I spotted a journal of an 81-year-old bike tourist who is getting ready to leave on his dream tour -- from Sacramento to St. Augustine. From what he's written, he's highly experienced and well prepared, and ready to leave in a few days. His wife is suffering from Alzheimer's and apparently is in a care facility, but is headed back home in a few months. So he is going to take off on his dream tour while he can.
Here's the link to his profile -- at the bottom of this profile page you can then click on the link to his journal, "Solo Tour of the Southwest."
As you may know, if you register at CrazyGuy you can leave comments in his guestbook as well...
