    Girls Bike Open Road
From N.Y. to Oregon
They were just eating supper when we found them—two pretty,
sunburned young ladies with vibrant personalities and new ideas
about how to travel. Their names are Sarah Moskowitz, 21, and Eu
genie Charpentier, 20. For 15 weeks they have been touring the
country on bicycles.
“We talked three years before our parents would let us take the
trip,” Sarah said. “We worked for three years to get the money, too.”

Pitt college has a coed band
major and when asked how she
liked her job she bubbled, “It’s
marvelous ... I look over my
shoulder and there are 120 men
. . . following me!”
—Utah Chronicle.
The girls live in New York city,
and work as bookkeepers.
Before the trip is over the
young travellers will have visited
over 20 states, and 3 nations. “We
went into Mexico,” Eugenie
laughed. “It cost us two cents
to get in, and a penny to get out.
Canada? Oh yes, we’ll go up to
Vancouver at least.”
“This is the first youth hostel
we’ve found in any state,” the
girls said. “It’s certainly grand.
We have a round trip train tick
et for six months time. We stop
where we please, take our bi
cycles, and just go everywhere.”
Clothes are no problem to the
enterprising pair. “We carry four
seasons of clothes,” they ex
plained. “When we stop some
where we take out what we need
and send the rest ahead to our
next stop.”
. They liked Washington, D.C.,
thought Florida was lovely
enough to cover entirely, and en
joyed the Mardi Gras in New Or
leans. In the next two months
they will take in the McKenzie
pass and the coast highway up
to Seattle.
“About 56 miles a day is what
we make on good roads,” Sarah
said. “And it isn’t expensive. It
costs us under $10 each a week.
Sometimes we can get a good
room for $3 a week. If we stay
somewhere just one night it costs
more.” Both girls were of the
opinion that a youth hostel sys
tem throughout the country
would cut travel expenses in
“We’ll be back,” they said,
“just as soon as we can save
some money and do this all over
