Jennifer In Oklahoma - My Internet Researcher

Special thanks to Jennifer in Oklahoma for all her help. What a friend!
Jennifer served as my researcher during the final planning stages and actual journey.
In many instances,
I needed to know where lodging existed in the small towns I would be riding through, and
Jennifer helpfully identified lodging in places
like Salome AZ,
Glenwood NM, Tatum NM,
Aspermont TX, New Boston TX
and Brent AL, to name a few. Sometimes she would even call ahead to learn rates and compare with other inns.
Oh and there was more: Jennifer researched bicycle shops along the route,
including the great find of the bicycle shop (Kwik Keys) in
Greenville, Mississippi. She also provided the best rates she could find when I bought
my one-way airline ticket from Jacksonville to San Diego and
even researched the best way to ship my bicycle back to Colorado.
If I had any concern about a matter while on the bike,
I knew I had Jennifer to call who would get back to me in a
timely fashion. And this is an attorney and single Mom with two kids ... How about that?!
Again, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Jennifer in Oklahoma.
There are already pictures of her on my personal web page by the way. We once
wandered around Buena Vista and
made a very special visit to the
historic Alpine Tunnel on the Continental Divide.
