Only 3974 Miles to Go

We rode about 36 miles yesterday. That was our shortest day of the entire trip. I started out the day with four flats! How does that happen? Well, I got a flat the day before (the first of our trip) and changed the tube without chnaging the tire. This is normal procedure. However, it took a few more chnages yesterday morning to figure out that I had a big tear in my tire that kept causing the tube to pop. Luckily, this all happened before we ever got started.

The group completed the first day in fine fashion. We had an amaziong spread of food waiting for us at the end of the day. We were in bed by 9PM; feeling exhausted from our short ride. Tomorrow we are heading into NY!

    Rough day huh??

  2. Hey Barry, Tara, and Katrina! The day got off to a rough start...for sure. I hope you all are well and Katrina is growing up big and strong. I bet it is getting hot in Missouri. So, stay cool and keep in touch.
