    Question - "What does having a dream mean to you?"
    Answer - "A dream is a goal glimmering in the distance; it is an inner calling which, when accomplished,
    serves as the rite of passage into wisdom." Erden Eruç - Sep 17, 2004

    Access to internet has been spotty lately. I am posting a quick update to mark my progress under the MAP link. ORS MAP link still works, and the Ocean Rowing Society has been kind to track my progress there. On the ORS MAP page, please click "Cycling from Cameron to Bodega Bay."

    I have also just added the Google Earth file for the cycling track since Cameron. Please click here.

    I reached Page in Arizona, next to the Glen Canyon Dam upriver from the Great Canyon. My ride along Rt 64 in northern New Mexico, then into Arizona through the Navajo Nation and their sacred Monument Valley has been absolutely spectacular. The cool weather at the 3000 meter elevations have now been replaced by a intense dry heat at 1200 meters. I may have to ride at night in southern Nevada after all, but I like my sleep -- we shall see.

    It is great to have Nancy's company during this ride although the lack of mobile phone service is creating some frustration. Her mobile phone has coverage, mine does not (different provider). That's what we get by deregulation and free markets where service is secondary to profits. I had better cell phone coverage in Africa!!! So we plan the day in the mornings and she finds me up the road, then drives ahead to find lodging and comes back to tell me. We have only had to tent twice until now, otherwise the nights have all been spent in hotels.

    I am on schedule to reach Bodega Bay on 21 July. I am looking forward to my friends joining me there that afternoon.

    Erden.
