I got to the airport 4 hours early, dressed In my cycling gear and box all packed. My flight to LA was pretty good, I met a nice guy called Sono who was on his was to visit his girlfriend and we also go move seats to the front row for extra leg room. Arriving in LA I didn’t mess around, I drove straight to San Diego, parked the car, are two subways and then slept. I had a nightmare I the night (sleeping in the back of the car) unfortunately it came true, I did indeed forget my bike sat nav. What a tool. So I’m going to have to make do with maps. It’ll be alright, sat navs stead me out anyway. I woke up at 4 ate the remainder of the subway and then returned the car. I headed to the coast and got there for 6.45. So here it begins 3,058 gruelling miles. Oh and it’s raining.
