I saw my friend John this morning and he asked me where I was going this year. I wasn’t sure. I don’t have any plans. But, spring will be here very soon and I know a one to three month Great American Road Trip is in order. I’m thinking south to Texas and then East to Florida. Maybe all the way to the Keys.
John also commented that we needed to take the train from ABQ to LA then ride bicycles to San Diego and back. We could then take the train back to ABQ. The more I thought about it the more it seemed like a good idea. I don’t plan on doing it tomorrow, but I have put it on my schedule, although the dates are in Limbo. I’m thinking later in the year. Maybe in the fall. This post is the start of my research. I’m a researcher at heart. Plus, I now have something to start writing about again. That’s half the fun. Maybe more. I read an article in the LA Times that said “Los Angeles to San Diego: The ultimate beach ride, this 140-mile journey is fairly flat, save an infamous hill in San Diego County. Although you’ll encounter traffic, you’ll often be on bike paths, residential streets or at least a road shoulder — rare for a coastal trip. Info: Adventure Cycling Assn., (800) 721-8719, http://www.adventurecycling.org. Its Pacific Coast Route Section 5 map costs $11.75 for members, $14.75 for nonmembers.” Hmmmm, I guess I need to get the map.
