1st Road Entry
Mood:  not sure
Allright I made it brother Geoff's place in Highland near San Bernadino. It's been quite a week mentally and physically. The first few days it was raining and at night I just kept thinking about  home and how long I'll be gone. The weather has been great since and no wind issues. The bike (or "the rack") as I've begin to refer to it is performing flawlessly. Every few minutes you have to come up with a new reason to keep at it. This is mostly a mental game. The climb out of Bakersfield up to Tehachapi was a bear. 4000 ft climb. just turn up the music and keep pedaling. Been splitting the motels and camping, in Palmdale I spent a night stealth camping in a vacant lot beside a trailer park. Got up and  rode 70m from 3000 ft. over a 4800 ft. pass to make it to Highland. That first leg has taken me several days longer than I had thought but I must have thought I was in shape! Anyways chillin' here for a day, a short ride to Mom's in Hemet and spend a day there then start heading east again. My legs are sore, my right knee is aching, my ass is a whole 'nother story but I have flashes as the long days go by that I can do this. Just shut up and pedal. I loaded some pics but if it seems their just endless photos of far off horizons, that's pretty much the story so far. Thanks all, be cool and catch ya' next time.   Brian
