17% Grade. 2 Kilometers. Au revoir brake pads!

I don't really have a lot to write home about now. I'm in my fabulous tent, burrowed in my cozy down bag, icing my knee. My legs are coated in tiger balm. My palms are beginning to blister (from gripping handlebars for dear life on harrowing 17 percent downhill grades), my face is wind and sunburned. I just biked 45 miles over heavy headwinds in the marshes, steep rolling hills along the coast, and across another majestic mountain pass who's great red face was calving into the hungry sea. I feel AWESOME.

Down to 30 lbs of gear thanks to all the food we ate. Mountain pass, here we come!
