The Greater San Fransisco Area

Continuing my quest to travel the world.

It has been my quest to cycle around the world for a very long time, although I have ticked off 16 countries to date, I still haven't achieved the ultimate goal of cycling the world. I cannot wait any longer for the conditions to be perfect, age is catching up with me, so it is now or never.

scaredy cat.


Lake Michigan.
I have a confession to make, I am scared of deep water, and all the things in deep water. I cannot do water sports and can only go on a boat if I don’t look over the side into the water. So crossing big bridges by bicycle is very scary for me. The Golden Gate in San Francisco was very scary and I had to look straight ahead  and cycle as fast as possible. So the bridge over the strait from the upper Michigan peninsula to the lower Michigan peninsula that joins lake Michigan to Lake Huron is my biggest fear. The bridge goes for many kilometres and spans very deep water. I have been almost panicking about it for the last few days and now it is upon me.  However it looks like I might be in luck as they don’t have a cycle lane and bikes must be put on a shuttle to the other side.

Fighting to see the other side of the lake.
There's that bridge.

Talking about stupid suspicions. I was watching the TV in the motel last night ( yes another motel – as there are no campgrounds in this area), and there were people trying to find a Sasquatch. They had ‘evidence’ of its existence: a turd that was very human like! but not human, a thatch of red / brown hair that was DNA  coded as something like a human but not. A recording of guttural noises ( that sounded a lot like a Deer in heat), and trees that had been ‘bent’ into odd shapes that no human could do, human scientists and doctors who had apparently seen and even touched a Sasquatch but the most ridiculous thing of all was the heat sensor that detected something in the woods. There are many things in the woods, Deer, Bear, Squirrels, rats and bats to name just a few. They were determined that a Sasquatch exists. Silly people.
