Fabulous Fun in Florida

It’s 1:58AM and Cristina and I are still going…tonight was the night we planned to finally catch up with our photos, stories and blog entries that we want to someday share with you all.  We’re hoping to “catch up” and share great stories, photos and more from this wild Family Book Tour we’re on.  For now, we’ll start with baby steps and just share our 4-day adventure in Florida.  We’ll then try to back track and take ya on some adventures from Cali out here…but first things first…

We left New Orleans just after the most intense thunderstorms we have ever heard pummeled our trailer all night, only giving us a few winks of sleep.  We then had a long 12+ hour ride to St. Augustine, FL where we crossed tons of dumping thunderstorms and had several close calls with some horrific drivers on the road.  But we finally made it to Florida and had nothing on our agenda the 1st day but to relax, hit the warm beach, soak in some much needed sunshine and enjoy.  A tandem ride to the beach, splash park, pool mission and bbq made a killer “day off” before gearing back up for the next day’s mission of work.

I did a record 5 radio interviews in one day then rallied the family off to our event in Jacksonville at Lakeshore Bicycles where Mark and his crew bent over backwards to make us feel super welcome.  They had a popcorn machine, drinks, food, chairs and Mark even lugged his huge big screen from home.  The media did a great job covering the event so we had a nice turnout and almost all the seats were full.  The reception was super positive, we sold enough books to eat and pay gas and we met some great friends we’ll no doubt be able to re-visit next time we swing through.

So we’re off to bed now, but wanted to share some photos of our adventure here in Florida before rolling north to Charleston, South Carolina area where we’ll be staying at the Mount Pleasant KOA.  Very excited!

Book Reviews

“Bianchini’s A Bicycle Built for Two Billion is not about the bike. It’s a life odyssey of epic proportions. Few of us live from the heart. Jamie reminds us how.”   –– Les Stroud (Survivorman) Related

An exhilarating debut memoir that chronicles a fallen entrepreneur’s eight-year world tour on a tandem bike. Bianchini’s extraordinary chronicle begins with his often tumultuous childhood and showcases his enduring love of bicycle-riding. He sometimes felt overshadowed by his large extended Northern California family, which fractured when his parents divorced, but his outings on his bike

Once I started reading I just couldn’t put it down. The story ended up being so much more than I had expected…more engaging, more unpredictable, more emotional. Jamie shares his own life journey even as he shares a perspective of the world few of us get to see in any country let alone many across

Total Adventure “Even though I already had a connection to this book because I had met Jaimie and Garryck in Japan, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the writing and story layout was. I read 100 pages the first day, simply because I couldn’t put it down! Both then and now, Jaimie has reminded

Very pleasantly surprised with this book! Bianchini takes a big bite outta life in this adventure (and sometimes pays the price). His honesty is well, honest and his heart seems to be fixed in just the right place. This is definitely ‘feel good’ terrain but with a goal in mind. I highly recommend “A Bicycle
