Day 1, leaving San Francisco

[slide height=”300″ width=”400″]
After a quick bacon & eggs breakfast at Steve & Cathy’s we headed down to the ferry terminal to catch the first ferry to Vallejo. We were running short on time so we didn’t get a chance for a group photo & sparkling cider toast before we had to board the ferry. Thanks to Steve, Cathy, Mike & Maggie for taking care of us and helping us get on our way. We decided to be ambitious on our first day and set west sacramento as our destination for the day.

About 10 miles out of Vallejo we ran into a couple from London who were tranaming east to west and were just about to complete their journey. They started they’re journey in Yorktown in late May. Harry & Celia had some good advice for us about the terrain we’d be facing ahead.

As we moved inland the terrain was amazing, reminiscent of the set of There will be blood. Gradually the landscape changed as we moved into more fertile valleys dotted we farms and orchards.

Due to not getting a super early start, a couple wrong turns, and an ambitious goal we ended up getting to our campsite after the sun had gone down. Sarah shattered her previous one day mileage record of 55 miles as we put in over 80 today. Exhausted and sore she is already passed out. Tomorrow we start to climb, as we begin to make our way into the foothills of the Sierras.
