I Had no reception at all today, not even at lunch, but made it to bodega bay dunes state park. Will try to update more after setting up camp- it was a loooooong day!
I nearly forgot- two other things happened today. First, I found that my Brooks saddle is well and truly broken in. I did about 45 miles with regular shorts, no bike padding, and I was quite comfortable. Finally! For some people these things never really do get comfortable. Second, I … Continue reading
I decided to keep going, and to call it a night quickly if I didn’t feel good about it. The day was actually really easy, except for one really steep switchback that I walked up. The day started foggy, but I was on a pedestrian path for the first five … Continue reading

I made it to Weot tonight, and that’s about 65 miles today. Not bad! Will try to post some pictures soon.
