Crushed out 66 miles today. Started in the gray 49 degree dawn and proceeded to blue skies/solid sun. The coast continues to be stunning.
In Port Orford, we met two young badasses. As we were eating lunch on the sidewalk outside the grocery store, we saw this 16 and 17 year old high school student pair ride up. They are good friends from Missouri whose parents let them fly to Seattle and do a summer solo trip tour by themselves to San Francisco. Basically, they are badasses because (as Adam, Janna, Brianne, and I agree) we could never imagine doing that at that age. They did a Kickstarter/Indie Go Go to raise money for the trip, they are 100% supported to do this by their parents, and they are absolutely brave/courageous to do this. Tonight, they joined us at our campground and we all chilled inside a laundry room inside the RV park talking about life late.
Tomorrow, we enter the redwoods in California.
