However, I think I have learned that my comfort level can be pushed further than I ever thought it could and I can keep on going. I still am not used to people looking at me either with amazement or like I am crazy when they hear I am biking across the country; I think either reaction is meant to be a compliment to my ability or at least my attempt. I am amazed everyday that I finish another day! I can now say with confidence that I will finish this goal of biking coast to coast–and if I can do it anyone can, but I would definitely advise you go with Bubba. He told me from day 1,before I ever sent in my entry that he would take care of me and he has. His staff and crew make every day enjoyable!
Jeff told me on my last birthday that I was not over the hill yet, but we would get there together, and boy have we…hill after hill after hill and a couple of very low times thrown in along the way to test our (my) resolve! Nobody said it would be easy. It is nice to be able to accomplish this together, and I believe it has actually made us feel younger and stronger.
We are not done yet, but we will be soon, and like we have tried to do with every day that preceded this, we are trying to savor every new experience and sight so that we can relive it in our memory for many years to come.
Tomorrow, we cross another border into the state of Mississippi. Tonight we rest in Franklinton, LA.
