Random Highlights.... And a farewell!

Amy and I wanted to point out some random highlights of the trip.

First of all, we added up all the mileage.  We biked 1829 miles!  

According to Amy's bike computer we burned nearly 50,000 calories!

Lucas' sweet tan line!

Amy didn't want to show a picture of it, but her thighs have nearly doubled in thickness!  

Yesterday we went to the San Diego Zoo.  It was pretty awesome.  The zoo is huge!  
Here are some random pics and highlights.

This Orangutan rolled around this lawn for about 10 minutes.... It reminded me of when I was super tired after  biking and would have no interest in walking.  If I could have, I would have rolled around!  He's onto something!

 Tomorrow Amy and I will be dropping my parents off at the San Diego Airport, marking the the true end of our bike trip.  But the adventure isn't over yet!   Amy and I's adventure will be continuing over the next month or so.  I have a couple job interviews and many places to see in between those places.  Amy has been applying to a few jobs as well.  We'll be headed to New England, back to family and friends while we figure out our next step in life....

I want to thank you, yes, YOU!  Thank you for following our blog and leaving comments along the way.  Your support was so appreciated!  It has been a wonderful adventure and hopefully it is only one of many to come!!

I look forward to reading about your next adventure!

Keep the dream alive.
Lucas and Amy

I would also like to thank Ronnie, Jerry, and Lucas for supporting me throughout this adventure and all of the many friends we saw along the way for their wonderful hospitality! THANK YOU!!!
