Uphill and Against the Wind - TransAm E-W
By Dave T

Where are we now?

Fred

I lost track of Fred about 18 years ago, but with the help of the internet I found him in Colorado. Fred enjoyed Colorado so much he moved there from Washington D.C. We have email back and forth several times in the last 3 months. Apparently, I inspired Fred to get a new carbon fiber bike and ride the Famous "Triple ByPass" in Colorado. Fred is an author and motivational speaker.

[Update] - Lisa and I will be in Rocky Mountain NP in September, we plan to meet up with Fred and his family.

Diane and Clay.... Seasons Greetings, 1987!

I also lost track of Clay and Diane about 18 years ago. Lisa and I tried finding Clay in Portland in 2003 without success. After contacting Fred, he indicated that Clay and Diane were now married, have a son, and live in Iowa. I then used the internet to find them, they own and operate a bakery in a small town in Iowa.

I called the bakery and Diane answered the phone, I said "it's Dave from Michigan".... Diane said "WHO?" .. ha ha ha. She was very surprised it was me. I ended up talking to Clay for about an hour, as Diane was waiting on customers. Their voices and everything were exactly the same as I remember them.

They now ride recumbent bikes.....What the _____?????

Gene, the Coach

I haven't heard from Gene in many years, and never really expected to. I received a book and a note from him about 18 years ago, and we talked once or twice on the phone. Gene is usually in some remote part of the world or on some trip somewhere.

Gene was a great riding partner and friend from that summer of 1986. I wish he finished up with us in Astoria.

Stew and Steve from Texas

I've been in constant contact with Stew over the years. We've email back and forth many times. We've also been on many trips together, skiing out west, Tahoe, Park City, Taos NM, Breckenridge, Crested Butte, and Salt Lake City. We've had some great times together skiing.

I haven't really talked to Steve in the last 18 or so years, he is busy with stresses of domestic life I guess.

Mary Kay

from 520 South in Missoula

In 1987 I spent a few days with Mary Kay in Seattle before riding the San Juan Islands, Vancouver Island, and the west coast to San Francisco. I had a great time with Mary Kay, but lost track of her after a few years of corresponding (she probably got married). I never kept in contact with any other girl from Virginia City or 520 South.

Rich

Whereabouts unknown. Rich completed his trip in Florence Oregon with the BC group. I thought he returned home from Missoula.

Sheryl

Whereabouts unknown. Sheryl left the BC group in Missoula and continued on with a brother and sister team. Unknown if she ever completed the journey. I thought she also went home in Missoula.

ME

I graduated from college in 1988, and worked for the Ford Motor Company. After a few years working for the man, I decided to start my own company. I founded an ISP in 1995, which now is a local and long distance telephone company.

I met Lisa because of a bike ride called the "Zoo-de-Mackinac". Our first date was a climb up to Mt Sneffels, 14,150' near Telluride Colorado. We married in 2004 on a beach in Maui, Hawaii after dating for 5 years. We travel and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible, especially in the mountains of Colorado and the west. We spend a good part of Michigan winter in our West Maui home on Ka'anapali beach. We live by Gene's creed!

Aloha, and Mahalo (Thank You) for riding along.

Dave T.
