Sunday, chuck, mike, john and i headed to san antonio. great morning, fair pavement. we intersected with a buddy of mike’s on his way to his ranch in uvaede, we had a great visit, great guy, trey had given us our dinner recommendation the night before.
we exited off hwy 90, reconnected with lincoln for a late lunch and decided to push to the hotel. we are now in hill country and added 1500 vertical in the last few hours of the day. we were tired when we pulled into hotel, but cold beer awaited, we also were greeted by mike and sue rushmore, friends from co. in to join us. i crashed early.
monday morning we were greeted by local abc news crew for an interview, they were very nice but it must have been slow news day. we pushed off and hugged frontage roads to work our way to austin. our lunch was at a local volero station and then we said goodbye to john marquardt and mike carothers, i am not sure how we will identify roadkilll without them……..
we pushed on and were soon joined by john willian, a long time family friend who escaped from a conference in austin to join us for a few hours before heading back to austin for a dinner, a great visit. sue, mike, chuck and i had a little pizza and agreed to push on to austin tomorrow, only 52 miles away.
