      Thanks Lars! I’m so glad I could inspire you 🙂 I will definitely be passing through Los Altos Hills so I’ll be in touch!

    When your riding through Northern Cali (Davis-Portland on the tentative schedule), give me a call and you can stay with me if you would like in one of your rest days! I love you and I want you to know how truly inspired I am by what your doing! I don’t know what route your taking, but there is an exit off of the I-5 here in Redding for Portland!

      Thanks Alex! I’ll definitely let you know when I decide the specifics 🙂 I’m so glad to hear I could inspire you, I hope what people take away from my trip is that everyone had within then the capability of fulfilling their dreams, they just have to decide to do it.

      Thanks Ashley! I actually have just revised my plan a little so I will be up in the Chico/Davis area for about a week at the end of March, so I may be taking you up on that 🙂
