Today we left our hotel. Me and Daryl were feeling ok. We asked a person about the terrain. He said that there is a big climb and then the rest is flat. We rode for a while. When we hit the desert it was neat. The shadows stretched on for a long way because the sun was low in the sky. Finally we made it to the hill. It was long and steep, well only the first part was steep. Finally we crested it and we could see miles and miles of desert streching out in front of us. We rode the rest of the way. Finally we made it to town, but not before we went through a tunnel. It was short though, and had dim lights on the top, but we put our blinkies on and went though. When we got to a good place to put the bikes Mom left to look for a hotel. Me, Dad, and Daryl waited, and waited, and waited. Finally Mom came back. She had two choices: A 60 soles hotel and a 50 soles one. We ended up with the 60 soles one because it had windows to the outside.
Davy’s Journal March 25
About Nancy Sathre-VogelAfter 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.
What are we doing now?
Nancy is an artist and metalsmith making wearable art from recycled metal and antique components.
John is busy either hiking or planning his next long-distance hike.
Davy is studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Boise State University.
Daryl is studying Computer Science and Software Engineering at University of Texas Dallas.
