My nomadic life became a full-time adventure in 2001. This is how it happened. After decades of weekend to week long camping, climbing, snowshoeing, kayaking and cycling trips it was time for a true adventure. It would take all summer to complete and was my fortieth birthday present to myself. The goal was to cycle the American west coast from California to Washington, taking my good, sweet time to enjoy the beauty of one of the most magnificent coastlines in the world. Living all summer with only the gear in the panniers turned out to be the most wonderful summer of my life.
