The Swiss have arrived!

Hi every one

Thanks a lot for all your comments. We are here!

After arriving in Boston, we went to Air Canada Cargo, looking for our bikes. Everything went really smooth. The bikes were there, the Customs guy was waiting for us and it only took more than five minutes because he wanted to small talk. With our stamped forms we went back to Cargo and in another five minutes we had our bikes.

And here they come:


Then we took apart the crates:



Put everything back together again:



And here they are. The two bikes, ready to ride:



The guys at Air Canada Cargo were really nice. After a small chat with them, they even took care of disposing the crates and wished us a safe ride.

Then it took two long days to ride down to Tellico.

Here I am, getting the first roll chart mounted:



After a short lunch in Tellico, we were where the asphalt ended (for the first time):



And then came the five water crossings. Here's Sandra taking one of them:



After zig zaggin the whole afternoon through Eastern Tennessee we finally arrived in Dayton, where we're spending the night.

That's it for today.

See you guys
