    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.

    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.

    I’m wroting history of a family divided to USA and Finland. My father Matti Pirkola was a cousin of Martha Adele Maki who married with Emil Koski. Emil Koski’s son was Kevin J Koski, born August 5th 1934. I know there are lots of Koski surnames in US, but do you happend to be son of Kevin J Koski, mentioned above? Or do you belong to the family some other way.
    I’ve been following your rides with great interest. Undortunately I’m too old to bike that long journeys (71).
    Hopefully you find time to answer me,

    Hannu Pirkola

      Hi Hannu, well Koski is Polish, not Finnish, but on my mother’s side I do have Finnish ancestry, the surname is Kilpela.

    Kevin I am up for church having an early coffee them I’ll sit at church and wait for first Sunday school class. Did an in situ art sculpture celebrating my husband’s life. A sister passed and he is going through a huge stressor of grief. A cousin, 86 yrs youngy had 2 strokes, she may not return to her home. Such a transitory life But on to life, yours is so dynamic. Bless and keep you in your travels.
    I saw s past post of you boarding on dunes. We had gone to Colorado’s Great Sand Dune Park and had no sleds or boards to ride. And the kids got parched. Your boarding looked great and made me reintegrate what an invredible adventurer you are and so fearless! Safe journey again and God bless.
