Joe’s driving today and Tom is sweeping. Once the kitchen crew finishes with the breakfast and lunch prep, and have put things away . . .
. . . we are about ready to go. Make sure all the luggage is loaded,
. . . make sure all the rest of the gear is in the trailer . . .
. . . and with one more review of today’s route, Joe and Tom, Jenny, Joe and I were on the road. Jenny has a cold coming on and decided not not ride today. She slept in the van while Joe and I shopped for groceries at Safeway in Ft Bragg and then hung out for an hour or two at Starbucks, while he did his daily paperwork. Including a report of my ‘incident’!!!
. . . and I got a new Specialized flashy colored helmet to replace my cracked Bell (which I bought in Ireland to replace the one I cracked there last year when I crashed)!!! mmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . . is there a pattern developing here?????
KOA tonight and everyone who wanted to pay extra was able to get a cabin . . . five of us boys slept in tents!!!
