Bio: We are Bill & Nancy Schettenhelm. We were both born and raised in Southern Michigan, and went to the same school. We now live in Cashmere, WA, which is the geographical center of the state of Washington. We are now 66 (Bill) and 62 (Nancy). We have always enjoyed the outdoors, but not until the early 90's did we take up biking. We originally road our own bikes, but when Nancy had major back surgery in 2000, the doctor told her no more biking unless it was on a custom built tandem that would not jar Nancy's back. Bill was a little apprehensive at first, but soon discovered it was much more enjoyable to ride together on a tandem. After much checking around and consideration, we decided to have a Co-Motion built. A great investment, and we have really enjoyed this bike. Once we started to ride a tandem, we bought a tandem talk and that made it easier to talk back and forth. We went on our first bike trip with Adventure Cycling Association to Utah for a week and had a wonderful time. Then on April 19, 2004, we headed back to Michigan on our tandem, to attend our high school reunion. We had a trip of a life time. Since then we have completed 2 trips across the United States. The Northern Tier and Southern Tier routes. Primarily following Adventure Cycling bike maps. This year (2008) we started our Atlantic Route tour in the Florida Keys and biked to southern North Carolina. (After our 2 month trip to Michigan, we promised our Grandchildren we would limit our rides to 30 days at a time!) We plan to complete both the Atlantic and Pacific routes within the next 2 years. Our daily motto--- "It's A Good Life"
Contact: Feel free to e-mail us if you are contemplating a trip and would like to ask us questions about what we took with us or our routes.
