Chuck to Travel (by Bicycle) from FL to CA!

Never Forget Your Dreams. ~ Korczak Ziolkowski

This is one of Chuck’s favorite quotes, and it comes from the sculptor of the great Crazy Horse Mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota (big surprise, huh?). It is a quote Chuck has always taken to heart. Building an Experimental Airplane from blocks of foam and gallons of epoxy, then flying his VariEze would be one example. Becoming a cyclist and setting out to ride your very first ‘Century’ (that’s 100 miles in one day) at the age of 61 would be another. Of course, becoming a full-time RVer also counts.

Now, Chuck has his sights set on riding his bicycle (yes, I said BICYCLE) from St. Augustine, FL to San Diego, CA (about 3,100 miles) along with a fellow cycling club rider, and good friend, Bob. He tells me that ever since my Five Points of Life Ride from Bar Harbor, ME to Key West, FL back in 2000 for LifeSouth Community Blood Centers, he has wanted to do a similar ride. With Bob’s planned trip and willingness to include Chuck in the journey, he decided that there was no better time than the present.

This man never ceases to amaze me! I know he’s very excited about his upcoming tour and is training rigorously while learning all about self-supported cycling, tents, cooking gear, and B.O.B.s. If you don’t know what a B.O.B. is, see that thing attached to the back of his bike, below:

That’s an awful tiny bicycle ‘RV’!

Chuck, a man who never forgets his dreams…
