Push America: The South Route

The South Route of the 2011 Journey of Hope team has had quite a different experience from the other two routes.   Like the North Route, we also started in San Francisco, but instead of heading east right away, we spent almost a week heading straight south along the coast till we reached the L.A. area.  The coast was absolutely gorgeous!  But as we went south, the terrain changed drastically.

Foggy Bridge | Push America: The South Route

We spent day 3 traversing the mountain pass of Big Sur, a 100+ mile day that took about 12 hours to complete.  The views from the mountain were incredible!  After a foggy morning that was reminiscent of Skull Island, we climbed above the cloud-line and could see for miles from the sides of the cliffs.   After that day, however, the land has been flat, with a few rolling hills here and there.

A Not So Hot and Sunny California Spring

I just got home from a month long kayaking trip in California and I’ve got to say it wasn’t exactly the hot and sunny California that I remembered. Actually, it wasn’t hot and sunny at all, more like cold and rainy. And the water levels? They were a bit high most of the time. It was one of those things you just had to embrace. We wore dry suits and had cold hands. We life-styled and did other obscure activities. We did on overnighter in the rain. It was sweet.

I started off the trip in San Francisco visiting my big brother during what is claimed to be one of the best parties in all of California- Bay to Breakers. It lived up to its hype for sure, and involved walking like 10 miles in costume. I dressed up as a devil chicken. Next up was some time spent around Sacramento, finding things to do when the water levels weren’t exactly conducive to kayaking. Ever heard of kite skating? Stand up paddleboard surfing? I also managed to sneak in 49 to Bridgeport run of the South Yuba.
