This is Neil, he just graduated high school and is with the group we met yesterday. Here he’s ready to bomb Connors Pass (6% grade for 3 miles) on his long board. Baller.

Stopped to make leftover Aidell sausage sandwiches for lunch right before Sacramento Pass. A nice driver stopped to ask if we needed water since there were no services until Baker, and he later randomly found our blog through the Rivendell site! Hi!

This is Bruce, Neil’s dad. He is wearing $2000 14k Ray Bans that he bought over 20 years ago. So savvy. He is the funniest, sweetest guy.
