    I would love to come up and be part of a cheering/support crew but I have to be at work that Monday so it's doubtful.

I really like the concept, so perhaps I'll figure something out with Nutella in it.
    Tobin,

    I rode with Jason Sager, Old Schooler (Shawn), Gerald (G-), and some others in El Paso before the Chupucabras 100K several years ago, and Jason shared with us his race food: Marie's cookies with peanut butter, strawberry jelly, and Nutella spread in between to make a sandwich. He would individually wrap each sandwich in Saran wrap and carry them on the ride/race. You'll still probably experience the crumbling aspect depending on how and where you pack them, but you should make them one day and give them a try on the bike. They'll be cheaper than buying the packaged goods.

    And your story is inspiring. Good luck in Leadville!

    Ring Mastering complete. For a little while.

    The weekend was a tremendous success and why wouldn't it be. The cast of characters (racers, staff, volunteers, officials) were all World Class.

    Georgia & I were discussing rafting & kayaking on the Poudre River (she's from Ft. Collins).



    Todd & Max passed Jen & I on a ride in Durango last summer. Both of them remembered passing & chatting with us (I was really surprised they remembered). Max claimed he had a hangover, Todd claimed that Max always rides with a hangover.



    Heather & JHK made it to the ranch but skipped the race due to sickness. They caught some bug while in S. Africa at the World Cup the weekend prior. We chatted a bit about LV100 as JHK raced it last summer and Heather supported him. They both gave me lots of tips and JHK gave me the cassette from the wheel he used in that race ( Thanks Jon R. if you're reading this ) I'm taking it back to Leadville again but this time I power the chain that turns it around in circles.

    My riding partners this past weekend was a group from Puerto Rico. They had come out to RJP a bit early on Friday to pre-ride but the Ranch was closed. Seeing as how they had traveled so far to come and race, and one of them was racing the Pro event the next day, I invited them to go out with Doug & I on our morning scouting mission where we were looking for down signage and places that needed additional signage/tape. They were very appriciative of the tour guiding that Doug & I were able to provide.

    Hadji Corona on the front here. He took 41st out of the 67 person Pro Mens's field.

    Saturday: rode to Canyon Dam and picked up George & Marco and then headed to RJP. Hit some very nice roads West of Wimberly & S. of Dripping Springs, some of LA's favorites that he trained on, preparing for TdF. Wayside, Fisher Store, Ledgerock, Mt. Gainer, Mt. Sharp, Creek Rd. ect... We arrived at the ranch and I switched bikes and rode a lap with Sandy and after that we worked to take the rest of the signage down from the race, picked up trash, water bottles and enjoyed the nice Hill Country views.

    When I started going out to work on RJP, it never crossed my mind that I would/could ride my bicycle out to there. It was a really great ride and I'm ready to do it again.

    Often....I find myself asking myself what I have learned from the journey....We are lucky to be here, on this beautiful planet. We are lucky to have the short amount of time that we are granted. And we are lucky that our beautiful planet hasn't killed us (yet).

    5/13 Friday - a bit over 100k to Kenedy, TX. I took S. Presa out to 181 and rode by several places that must serve the most delicious Raspas, Barbacoa & Tamale's on planet earth. I rode for a brief bit with two cyclists on that street and asked them both if they owned a car. The answer from both was "no" and that is what I had thought... they were pure commuters. We were riding together, but the reasons why we were riding were different, they were riding home from work. I was riding to the beach from work. This morning, I bet the rode back to work while I drove to work.



    The RV Parks in Kenedy were all booked up so we spent the Friday the 13th camped in the WalMart parking lot. Most Walmarts allow you to park an RV/Trailer there overnight. When I asked the manager if it was OK her reply to me: "One night only". Her tone with that reply was: "this is not your new home buddy, don't get used to it".



    5/14 Saturday - Kenedy to Port. A.

    Skidmore, TX. This super nice lady, Rhonda while ringing up my water at this convenience store said a brief prayer for my safety for the rest of the journey. She warned me about all of the crazy people driving on the road. I told her not to worry, the crazy people were all still asleep and she got a good chuckle out of that. Thanks for your prayer Rhonda.



    Sinton, TX. I pulled up to Rudy's BBQ (not the Rudy's that we all know, it was a local establishment) and DJ Young Guns were out front spinning country music tunes and chatting up a storm on his microphone. This guy gave me some very enthusiastic props over the microphone. The funny thing was, there was no one around to hear him.

    Magnificent!



    I've never been on the Port A. Ferry on a bicycle before.



    Ending a long-ish ride at the beach is the way to roll.
