Nearly Ready

I think we are just about ready to hit the road – still scared that my endurance may not be where it needs to be, but we think I’m well enough to head out slowly.  We will put my trailer on Davy’s bike for now and plan on short days.  Fortunately, there are quite a few towns coming up in the next hundred kilometers so, if I can’t do it, we can stop there and hang out a while longer.

John has been taking advantage of this down time to get some Bolivia videos put together.  He did one about northern Bolivia – where we made the detour off our expected route and had no idea what we were looking at.  He also made one about the 500 km we cycled with the Verhage family.  The last one was cycling the chaco – the narrow strip of Bolivia smashed in between Paraguay and the Andes mountains.

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 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.

    Good luck as you head out again. Just don’t push too hard.
    I loved the videos. So many adventures. It must be great to ride with another family.
    I enjoy seeing the many ways the boys find to entertain themselves during stops. 🙂
    I spent some time on the Napo River in Ecuador many years ago. The heat and humidity can definitely make exercise of any kind an obstacle but you seem to have made it through just fine.

    Take it slow and easy. You don’t want to land in the hospital again. I have personal experiences with walking (cycling) pneumonia and it wasn’t fun.

    We all live in a small world. This morning, I stopped at a small Marathon gas station on the eastern outskirts of Tallapoosa, Georgia for a cup of hot chocolate. As I was sipping my drink and talking to the lady at the cash register about my adventures and other cyclists that I follow on the internet, she came out in the blue and mentioned that she has been following your adventures for a while. I didn’t catch her name but I thought that I would share this with you.

    That is hilarious Rev!! Reminds of the time I was chatting on someone on FaceBook and she mentioned some friends who are also touring, whom she has been following. “They are here in this town now – we’re having dinner together tonight!” What a small world!
