At the risk of terminal boredom …


One of the most dreaded questions in the English language is: Would you like to see my vacation photos?
It ranks right up there with such questions from a wife as: Would you like to go with me to the fabric shop? Or: Why don’t we clean out the garage?
So at the risk of inflicting terminal boredom, I’m posting a yet another selection of photos from the transcontinental bicycle journey that I rode in this fall.
Nearly all of our original party of 15 carried cameras to chronicle the journey from San Diego to St. Augustine, Fla. I’ve already posted several selections of my photos. Other participants have now started posting their photos on a Web site that we can all look at.
Here are some photos by John Diller and Mike Ullner:
