FIRE FIGHTER CYCLE
This is Victor he is from Bulgaria. His wife died a few years ago and he was so sad and lonely. He sold his home and everything he had and bought a bike and is riding the rest of his life he says ....because it makes him happy. I had tears in my eyes listening to his story of his wife's slow death, but at the same time so proud of his courage and a way to find peace in his sorrow. I shared a few of my Clif Bars with him as he made his cereal mix at a bench. We then rode together for a few days. I met him here in southern California.
He was on his way to Tierra del Fuego he said "where the road ends" It does, that's the southern tip of South America. Victor had found his peace .
I am a fire captain and cancer survivor.
