Bill Bliss Story #2
My first memory of Bill Bliss was back in 1991. He was leading a ride down to GWBR, so I decided to come along. This was my first time, so Bill showed me the route. Bill had been riding this route for many years, going south of Hollister on Hwy 25 on some very isolated roads. Bill showed me all of the places to stop for water and food. We ate breakfast at Jerry's in Hollister, and Bill would always tip with a $2 bill, saying it was more special that way. I've used this same route every year since then, leading a group or riders down to the Rally. But it was going along with Bill that first time that made this route possible.
