started out with high hopes today, still feeling good from yesterday, little did we know………got about 31/2 hours into ride and just could not keep enough fluids going, we were draining camelbacks every 40 minutes, no breeze, no shade, just sand dunes. we jumped into rv at 1230, temp. over 100 and just not feeling well. we called it a day, going to start at 5am tomorrow and make up a few miles on rest day. got brakes checked, a flat fixed on rv, and a comfort shade rigged up on my bike for sun. we loose katy, our filming guru, she will be back in a few weeks. paul will miss her as she changed his flat tire which he had no idea how to handle.
as jimmy b tought me, you are eating an elephant, some times you just take smaller bites.
