a quick update on my rest day, my dad and i had a late breakfast at dennys,
i tried to read for a while but fell asleep, beers with dad, lincoln and alex. we watched my dad ride my bike in motel lot then headed off for mexican dinner.
today, wen. an early morning with dennys breakfast to go in rv, we backtracked 15 miles west of wickenberg to mile marker 95 and unloaded. it was alex and i and we had clouds for first time in 10 days, it was great. it started with a long climb but we had a great descent and we were really knocking off the miles. just after noon i was waved down by a couple on the side of road, they were Miami U alumni and had been at the send off in san diego with some other alumni. they had been following blog and were headed from phx to vegas and thought they might catch us, a very gracious couple and we had a nice visit. we now had a really stiff headwind and were slowed a bit but we were heading for a break and guest swap. it was great to have my dad in for a quick visit, but the awesome people from the parking spot had pulled in and they grabbed him and dropped off my good buddy from home, mike miller. mike had fresh legs and was pushing us but he realized he was dehydrating and needed a beer, we called it a day at 79th and thunderbird, 56 miles under our belt. thank you for your support.
