We are now in So Cal! It's been a whirlwind of activities, and soon we will start our little epilogue -- a ride back to Phoenix from Huntington Beach, California. It's monumental because Christi will be on her own bike and Tauru will be using the guidance from Christi since his vision is waning (role reversal).
After almost 16,000 miles, Christi has learned how to ride a bike. As for Tauru, the tunnel vision is worsening, the central vision in his right eye is fading and issues with glare is making it hard for him to discern objects -- it's time to relinquish captain-ship.
The last week in Fairbanks was filled with activities. We spoke at Access Alaska (organization that helps folks with all disabilities), got on the local news, spoke with doctors at an ophthalmology convention, participated with Access Alaska and Wall Busters to celebrate the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) at the state fair, and donated our bike. Yulp, we no longer have the tandem!
Then off to Anchorage by way of hitch-hiking. 360 miles in roughly 9 hrs with 6 rides, and an opportunity to raise awareness about blindness. In Anchorage, we also had a whirlwind of a time. Got recognition from Mayor Dan Sullivan, got on two local TV news, got on a local radio station, and spoke at the Alaska Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
We're enjoying Huntington Beach and our Warmshowers host, Jamie, and then we'll be back on the road again soon en route for Phoenix, Arizona. Home. Home, here we come.
Spread the word and help us Raise Awareness!
