|i arrived 2 hrs late in norfolk due to cancellation of the united flight
from c.r. this morning. so i flew via twa to st.louis rather than
o'hare...which didn't hurt my feelings. smooth flights, perfect weather.
the fellow (one of the biker's husbands) who had said he'd pick up me &
another rider (who came in at 1) stayed around to wait for me; he had
called around & found out that i was on twa. then he drove the 2 of us the
30 mi to yorktown. sooooo nice of him.|
|we missed much of the meeting, but got enuf to get us on the road tomorrow.
these adventure cycling maps are really neat. now if i can just read them
well. i'm going to finish loading up my bike (pump, bag, purple cow
horn....the essentials), then we're to have supper down the road at 6:30.
with not quite 4 hrs of sleep last night i expect to be dozing VERY early
tonight. breakfast isn't 'til 7, then we'll meet for the bike-tire dipping
at 7:45, then off to colonial williamsburg & jamestown. 48.5 mi
tomorrow....to hopewell, va.|
|the person who got my bike out of the box & put it together said it wasn't packed very well. in fact, the odometer is broken, so someone will help me put on a new one that i'll need to buy. since following the maps depends on my knowing distance between locations, i need the odometer.|
