I don't know if I mentioned it, but this summer Sarah and I cycled coast to coast across the USA. I did? Oh, sorry to be a bore, but we just received some photos in the post from Greg Siple, one of the founders of the Adventure Cycling Association in the USA.
The route passes by their offices in Missoula Montana, and the map noted that you are welcome to come in for an ice cream. Despite the fact that it was raining that day, we thought the offer was too good to turn down, so in we went. Once we got there we were introduced to a few people who were welcoming to a turn, Greg was one of them. He explained that since year dot (in this case dot being 1976) he had been photographing the people who came by and cataloguing them. There were some very cool pictures up on the wall - along with some historic bicycles.
So here we are, the 128th and 129th people to pass through their offices in 2009. I think we got there in early-mid July. The pictures are so grainy because they were scanned in from film, printed out on normal 80gsm paper, then scanned in again at our flat. I quite like the effect actually, it feels kind of historic. Like old time pioneer pictures or something.
