Pacific Coast , Seattle to Los Angeles ... June 2nd

on May 31st I will be hopping on an Amtrak to Seattle so I can ride my newly built Surly Troll down the Pacific Coast ... I will be going slowly (probably no more than 40 miles a day on average) camping every night (no hotels or warmshowers hosts) stopping every 5 to 10 miles (this is a pot smoking bike tour) ... video recording (jesse jinx morrow @ youtube) taking pictures (jesse jinx morrow @ facebook) cooking non-vegetarian food (but I never pass up a good buffet) not riding when it's raining (for the most part)

I have toured from Austin to st. Augustine ... then up to d.c. ... across new York ... other random states ... and , Thailand ... I plan on going back to ride asia in October ... but first ... the pacific coast tour ... it will be nice to tour in states where marijuana is legal ... I have dreamt of this tour for thousands of miles ... please don't fuck it up ... you are invited to ride along as long as we get along ... I usually prefer to ride alone ... for various reasons ... but this tour is different than usual in many ways ...

I am fairly familiar with the California coast ... I've even walked from san diego to san Francisco in 1995 as part of a political walk (to help legalize hemp/medical marijuana) ... so , I have a clue as to where i'll be camping and such ... i'll even meet up with some friends along the route ... so please , be cool ... and , one more thing ... no spandex ! I do not want to be associated with those type of riders ... nothing personal ... but it's hard making friends when you're smuggling plums ... I felt at the beginning of my tour that it's important to look like a casual guy on a bicycle ... and I feel that way even more so now ... I have heard many stories of "haters" harassing "bicyclists" on the road ... throwing stuff at them , etc. ... the one thing these "cyclist" have in common , is that they are all wearing spandex ... one "cyclist" even went as far as to call these harassers "spandex haters" ... I have experienced maybe one golf ball ... in texas ... and my friend was wearing spandex shorts ... other than that ... I have had no issues while bicycle touring (aside from drivers not paying attention or being way too courteous) ... now ... if I were wearing a one piece racing leotard ... lol ... I couldn't fathom ...

so ... just call me if you are serious about this ... (562)234-5520 ... you can message ,but ... I may forget to check my inbox ...
