    Dear Kevin,

    I’m impressed, if you happen to ride through Houston please visit.

      Welcome Abraham. Sorry, no plans to visit Houston any time soon. I hope all is well.

    saludos Kevin. Me gusta saber de personas que están cumpliendo sus sueños. Sueños que muchos de nosotros hemos postergado por diferentes circunstancias.
    Felicidades por tus viajes.

    I enjoyed talking with you today just north of Longview, WA.
    Hope your day ends well and you find a good place to rest and relax as the sun sets.
    You certainly have gotten around on your bike.
    You should be lecturing me.
    Don’t let your tolerance levels creep your bike load up and up.
    See if you can demo a aero bar. Go for one with fixed arm support pads.
    I purchased a fitted bike and found that it was a waste of money (fitting and build). I discovered as I age so does my body so after a few years I’m changing the dimensions (seat to handle bar height and distance, Seat to pedals etc.). I suspect your aging and should look at some dimension changes to alleviate places that are bothering you.
    Best of luck and happy travels to ya.
    Art B

    Oh boy, that earthquake must have been waiting for you to leave Hokkaido.

      Yes I left on Sunday and it hit on Thursday. I rode close to the epicenter apparently, about 12 km away. I remember seeing many houses built right next to tall cliffs and thinking I sure wouldn’t live there.
