July 28 Day 19-San Simeon State Park to Santa Maria 78 miles 2800 ft climbby Terry Toland on 07/28/11
Todays ride is dedicated to Cutsforth. Thanks for your support Steve!
The morning began with a surprise visit at our campground from Judy and Ken, Kevin's Mom & Stepdad, his sister Deborah and 3 of her lovely kids Britta, Brook and Brandon! Judy and Ken brought us fresh grapes and almonds from the Central Valley and Deborah brought us home made energy cookies. All of the delectibles helped get us down the road.
That wasn't the end of our visit. A couple hours later, the entire gang rallied up at the Great American Fish Company in Morro Bay for an outstanding lunch.
Flexibility is still key to finding lodging. We had to modify our route to Santa Maria to find lodging for the night.
Kevin experienced his most dramatic flat yet. A nice metal spike the size of a nail. For those tracking the Flat Tire Pool, its Kevin-5 vs Terry-3. The faster you go, the less you can see those foreign objects...at least thats my theory.
