San Francisco to Vacaville


Today the best description is HOT! 100+ degrees!! Add headwinds and hills. We struggled. We fell short of the campground we had planned to stay at by 15 miles. We ended up in Vacaville at 6 pm. Under these conditions we are happy to be in the air conditioning with a pool outside our door. Did that dip in the pool feel good!

Maybe I was a little hasty in my "may the sun shine all day long..." blessing!

Good one Leslie! I'll be making arrangements not to carry my stuff on my back next time. It took 35 min to get to work and 75 to get back; 100 degees, no stops! Perhaps the Gang of Three will reach Sacto on Sat then?

And I thought it was hot in Arroyo Seco yesterday (at the Zabala vineyard) but I wasn't riding a fully loaded bike. Wow. You guys are amazing.

Hey Leslie, your blessing was fine and we had that the first three days, without the heat.

John, The Gang of Three reached Sacto. as advertized on Friday, but only after an emotioally taxing 68.5 mile day.

Diana, Where you in the Pinot or the Sharah? Anyway I bet it was hot on the banks of the mighty Arroyo Seco River. Counting clusters? or shoot thinning? Curious minds what to know.
