Day 1

I rode about 72 miles today to Marblemount, WA.  I rode in the rain most of the day.  I went the wrong way for about ten miles and caught my front tire between the shoulder and asphalt and tipped over on my bike.  Hopefully, I got that out of my system and all is good ahead.  A big thanks to Seth DeMoor and Steve Seguin  for coming to Washington and sharing this personal story through OneBillionStories.com.  Having them there made the day more memorable and real.  Had a wonderful send off with family - mom, sister, wife, and two daughters - with my back tire dipped in the Pacific Ocean.  It was a beautiful setting.  Camping in an RV park near Marblemount tonight.  That's all for now.
