Changing this from a ride plan to a ride tale. The journey has begun. Much to the amusement of a local surfer, The man in the snowboarding suit literally dipped his toes in the Pacific this morning at about 6:15.

Dennis (Bigfish) was there to ride with Phil for the first tank and provide documentation with what appeared to me (at that early hour) to be 7 or 8 cameras mounted on various parts of his bike and person. Seeing him with his riding gear on and a camera mounted on the top of his helmet, I had the distinct impression that one of the Teletubbies had come to witness Phil's departure. I believe that the two of them walking up from the water, so attired, caused a psychotic break in one of the perennially, illegal substance soaked, Ocean Beach sea wall sitters as several police officers showed up to quell his ravings. A dramatic start to what I hope is a smooth, enjoyable and otherwise uneventful trip.

The man is riding with a heart filed with love and a noble cause.

Go Phil, GO!!!

I hope he's not too uncomfortable. At 15:31, he's near Deming, NM, and the local temp according to the NWS is 95F, and it's 100F in El Paso.

Ugh.


Experience gained is directly proportional to the amount of equipment ruined.

Yea, Its going to be a warm trip for Phil. It was great to be able to ride the first leg with him. Phil didn't even take a bathroom break or remove his helmet. He's pretty hard core.
Stay tuned for some video of the first leg. If I don't get it done tonight, look for it tomorrow.

GO PHIL GO!!!!! Stay COOL my friend.

Just gave him a call. Must be out of service area as I got voice mail. Left him an encouraging message. I encourage all to do likewise. Once he stops in a good area, he'll get all our messages. That'll be a real lift. He'll be getting into the hard part real soon. The sun is about to go down, & he's been on the road in the heat now for fifteen plus hours.

West Texas in the dark is not a friendly place. Help him along, folks.
