pacific coast latitude
Tomorrow, David and I start our trek down the Pacific Coast from San Francisco to San Diego. I’ve always wanted to do an extended trip like this — as we plan on covering over 600 miles in just over two weeks. Never before seeing the Californian coast, I figure this is one great way to do just that.
The route from the Adventure Cycling Association claims highs of 80′s, lows of 60′s, and a prevailing wind at our back. With little or no rain expected, our only setback should be the heavier summer traffic which we’ll counter with our brightly colored spandex (aka ‘superhero’) jerseys and flashing LEDs.
Blog updates will be intermittent, as we stop in to visit a few hospitable friends and hosts along the way. However, feel free to follow along with the help of Google Latitude and a recent cell phone upgrade which allowed me to set up the following location gadget.
Nerdy-techy, I know, but it’ll give you our approximate location (or atleast where I last powered up my phone) and iconic birds-eye view of what we’re seeing. Here’s the link: naterr.com/latitude.htm
[note: don't always believe what you see. I have the option of manually setting my location -- so relax if you see that we're jailed in Alcatraz Island, swimming to Hawaii, or tree-hugging in the Redwood Forest up north]
