There is something special about spending a week, basically alone with yourself for large portions of the day. It is not something that normally people get to do. There is always the phone, errands, work, the nagging thought in your head that you've forgotten something important, something to draw you away. I expected to enjoy my time like this, without distraction. I expected to see some beautiful coastlines as we rode through California. But having not spent any time there other than in large cities like San Francisco and San Diego, I did not expect the beautiful countryside we encountered. It was so varied: Rolling hills, vineyards, hayfields, strawberry fields, mountains, flatlands, and everything in between.
