We are posting this blog so that everyone is updated on our last week of activity, pictures and all.....and because we are unsure of when we will have internet again to send updates.
This past week has actually been quite restful in terms of cycling. We have been busy on our rest days with last minute adjustments and preparations to our gear as well as visiting family. We started the week by visiting Box Wheelchairs in Norco, CA for some adjustments to Seth's chair (this is the company who sponsored Seth with his awesome wheelchair -- definitely check them out). Then we spent time with family in Dana Point, exploring replicas of historic boats and enjoying some beach time.
From Dana Point, we continued riding, as you guessed it, SOUTH! We stopped in Carlsbad for a night and rode through Camp Pendleton before making it to San Diego to stay with Kelly's cousin, Stacey. While we were in San Diego we got to use Stacey's car to visit Challenged Athletes Foundation (they gave Seth a grant to help cover his handcycle...fantastic folks!) and run errands for last minute restocking of our gear. Riding around town with the air conditioning, going from point A to point B without any physical effort was quite a treat, one we do not take for granted. In the following pictures, you will see that we were haunted by the flat tire spirits.
Our plans are to continue to push our pace through the Baja until we meet up with Kelly's parents around Thanksgiving. As we hit towns along the way, we will continue updating as much as possible though we will no longer have the convenience of a data plan.
Thanks again to everyone for all of your support. Continue to spread the word on the importance of movement and physicality...and do yourself a favor by doing something active today.
