My photo albums of PBP and France!

Here are photos from a 90 hr free starter's perspective. No crowds at the start or finish but a great time overall! Thanks Hugh Kimball, Susan Otcenas, Gary Prince, Andy Speier, Chris Heg, Rick Blacker, Mark Roberts, Mark Thomas, Joe Llona, Joe Platzner and many others for keeping me going! And great to start off and come into Brest together as "Free PBPers" Also, thanks to Barbara Blacker and many others for all the great food at the gite near Uzel.

This is one of the best trips ever! Heidi, Elena and I are learning french language and culture and are seeing very fascinating landscapes and scenery in the Riviera, Provence and Rhone-Alps!
