Bikecentennial / Re: Wish I was there

Hello, I was there but it was 1980. Started on the VA coast in April and yep, met June Currie 'The Cookie Lady' and have pics (slides) of her and her dad standing with our bikes. From there we went through to Kansas City.  My two friends and I decided to take an Amtrak across Kansas, weren't looking forward to the headwinds. Got off the train in La Junta, CO, got back on the bikes and decide to re-route to go along the front side of the Collegiate range in CO. Ever-so much more scenic and some beautiful camping! Got to the Tetons in WY. There we went rock climbing for two weeks (staying at The Climbers Ranch outside Jackson Hole). The plan was to wait for a pre-packed van we had left with a friend on the east coast. They drove it out to meet us in the Tetons. From there we drove to the west coast, and on the way stopped to pick apples in WA state for the Fall season. Dipped my hands and feet in the Pacific Ocean near Seattle. Spent the winter x-c skiing in Winthrop,WA. Oh, the stories I could tell. What an adventure at 26!
