We met up with an Ausie named Ron, who was cycling in the opposite direction toward Los Angeles from Chicago. He was carrying all his gear on his bike. We spent a few minutes comparing notes and telling each other what to expect ahead. Claire shared some Gatoraid with him and off we went in opposite directions. I was told that traveling Route 66 has become the sixth most popular vacation activity in the world. So far we have met two groups from France, some Ausie's, and an older couple from Switzerland, who was also carrying all their gear on their bicycles, traveling the same route as Ron.
