Nancy & Dan Nelson

Dan & Nancy are a great couple who enjoy life. They live in the dark woods South of , but spend the coldest time of the year in Costa Rica. They both love cycling and almost have finished their trip across the , even though Nancy has lost a large part of her leg in a motorcycle accident several years ago.

They have prepared a special type of tandem, with one recumbent part and one regular part and have done 3 of the four parts so far, hoping to finish next summer!

In their spare time, they both play the ‘Irish Fiddle’, though they actually master a range of instruments. If you are ever in the Irish pubs in Olympia, check them out during one of the great ‘sessions’ they have there!
