Last night around dusk a couple rolled into the campground on a tandem bike. I waved at them, they waved back and setup camp at the next tent space over from me.
They introduced themselves as Sam and Julie, Sam was originally from London and Julie from Alabama. Julie had been living in Brooklyn when Sam’s job in London was phased out and so he decided to bike across America.
While preparing to start the trek in New York City, Julie and Sam met. Sam kept in touch with her and Julie flew out to meet Sam after he reached the West coast and days later, yes days later, they were married… That was four years ago and now they’re headed to South America on a belt driven tandem bike with an internal hub.
… And now you know… The REST of the story.
As for me, I’m headed along the Trace this morning and plan to turn South midday and work my way toward the next national forest which I think has a $7 campground with electricity and that should charge me up enough to make it to New Orleans without another pit stop for power.
