i'll get to the Zebras in a bit…
i finished riding 36 with the sun on my back all the way to the ocean, only in the last few miles did i hit the fog and the temperature dropped dramatically
the rest of the day was spent with the ocean on my right most of the time or surrounded by big Redwoods
….until rounding a corner i thought i had ridden thru a time warp and i was in an african savanna in the middle of a field was two Zebras!!! yes i'm not losing my mind, and having lived in Kenya years ago i can tell you these were big and healthy
i ended the day in a State Park, i must have had a puzzled look on my face, "are you Ok?" an English accent asks me
i reply, "$40 for a campsite, am i missing something here?"
"nope thats right, you can pitch your tent by us if you want, no problem".
this is how i met Matt, Nicola and there two kids Cosmo and Sky, they were world travelers now settled in California. they understood $40 was most of a days budget for a traveller, so we ended up in the same pitch talking the night away about life on the road around the campfire…and BTW they had the BIGGEST tent i have ever seen, they were now car campers
