Jim’s sons Tom and James took adventurous trips this summer. Tom (first picture below) biked coast-to-coast in 45 days. On June 26th, he dipped his back wheels in the Atlantic near Savannah, Georgia, and on August 5th, dipped his front wheels in the Pacific at Santa Monica, California. He covered over 3000 miles and carried his own supplies–there was no sissy van on this tour. Tom is 17.

Brother James cycled from Williamstown, Massachusetts, to Montreal. James is the subdued fellow holding the Quebec sign in the second picture below. The bikers carried their own equipment and camped along the way. James is 13. He will, no doubt, do the coast-to-coast trick within the next several years.
