Episode 3: Getting Back to Basics!
Day 9 through Day 16 of the Duty, Honor, America Tour had us wondering if the pace would slow down at all! As you will hear, Doug may have had the easy job: cycling for 4-6 hours every day! Debra had all the other jobs that were tough to fit into a 24-hour period: RV driving and maintenance, taking care of Daisy (including seeing a veterinarian), handling social media, planning where we would stay each evening, picking Doug up wherever he finished that day and taking him back there the next morning to start up again, having meals with family, friends, and new friends nearly every evening, and recording audio and video conversations with them the next morning. Whew! Doug's cycling stats: between October 15 and October 22, 2010, he cycled 423.2 miles and climbed 19,249 feet from Portland, Maine through Boston, Providence, and New Britain (a Hartford suburb) to Trophy Point at West Point, New York. It begins to become clear—each day has its own storyline.
