Day 3: No shower. That's right folks, this is our 3rd day of biking and camping without a shower. We woke up after a long night of trying to keep warm and battling some crazy wind. Traffic along the highway was starting to pick up, so we quickly gathered our things and packed up camp. As we walked our bikes to the Ragged Point Inn we realized that TODAY IS OUR 2 MONTH ANIVERSARY!! We each got a cinnamon bun to celebrate and talked about how amazing our trip has been so far.

After eating and cleaning up, we got on the road. We had another long day of climbing ahead of us, and wanted to get as early a head start as we could. We biked about 12 miles and then pulled over at a little convinience store to get some food. As we were goggling over the outrageous prices a fellow biker stopped in and asked us about our trip. We told him a bit and he invited us to each lunch with him as he waited for some friends who were meeting up for a day trip. As we waited Tim told us a bit about his biking travels and eventually he offered us a ride from Lucia to Big Sur. Apparently the road was a bit treacherous and cell service would be spotty until well outside of Big Sur. Hearing about the road made us nervous so we made plans with Tim to meet at an inn in Lucia. He was going to finish the day ride he had planned, and then come back and pick us up.

After a couple hours of relaxing, Tim pulled up in his truck and loaded our bikes up. We got to enjoy a beautiful ride into Big Sur and did not regret our decision to bypass all of the mountain climbs we drove over. We got into Big Sur just before nightfall and thanled Tim for the ride. After parting ways we biked into the campground, paid the $5 for our site, and then set up camp. While pitching our tent another biker started talking to us. His name was Terrance and he had been biking the coast since Montreal, Canada. We talked about our experiences, and even realized we had passed some of the same tourists along our way. It was nice to be able to get advice about the roads ahead and to give advice about his future bike rides. After cooking dinner, we got ready for bed and were much more careful about packing our food up than last night. Good thing too, because we heard animals rummaging around all night.
