Hi, Everybody! After postponing our trip for a whole week due to terrible weather in the forecast, which meant canceling all our hotel bookings and re-booking, we knew we would leave on the newly planned day, rain or shine. Well it rained, the weather was acually worse than on the original planned date of departure. Yesterday was our fifth day on the road, and the first day was the only time we had to ride in the rain. Thankfully we are not in the area that has been hit so severely by flooding, by the way.
Eventually I’ll write a journal, this is just to say hello. I’m really sorry not to write the journal in real time, but I’m not up to spending most of the evening writing on a shared laptop. I wanted to let you know that I’m enjoying everyone’s posts although I’m not getting around to commenting much.
The big news is that Janos and I did our birthday ride yesterday, 81 km for me and two more for Janos, an 83 km day. Patting myself (and Janos) on back.
