    Do You Know This Argentina to Alaska Couple?

    On my ride today, north of Eureka, CA, I met a couple that is touring from Argentina to Alaska. They started in January, 2009. I noted their web site, which was something like www.miranda.ch, but I forget the exact spelling, and can't find it.

    Anyone know of these guys? I'd like to check their progress.

    No, good try, but it was a Swiss man and woman.

    Oh wait - I just reread your post. They started in Argentina in January. That's perfect then. Anyway, I'll put out feelers and see if I can find them.

    Read my "funk" thread. Other than that, I suppose we're doing OK. John is sick today, but he'll get over it... Thanks for asking!
