Day 34 – Saturday, July 21, 2001

Lafayette, CA - Day of Rest

            Our lovely and talented publicist, Kelly Dayley, joined us today at the Garff home. We call her our publicist, but in truth she is the one doing all the behind-the-scenes work that keeps this thing running. It wasn’t immediately apparent who had ridden a bike to Lafayette and who had arrived by plane, as the four of us were ready to get out and do something (we played some absolutely awful tennis) while Kelly spent the greater part of the day passed out on the TV room couch.

            We had some quality sharing time this evening with Craig Stevens, the man who rode this route in 1971. He showed us pictures and journal entries from his ride and we showed some video from ours, which we realized was VERY BORING. We’ll have to edit and compress it into a highlight reel before we show it to anyone else.
