Made it to the Midwest

We arrived in Michigan at 12:30am, not too bad with the full car we had, plus two dogs. That makes an 11.5 hour drive..it was certainly not boring though! We hit a hail storm in KY, that had ice accumulation on the roads..crazy..I did get pics. We also had a really close call with a cop..we were sure he was pulling us over, but all of a sudden he got off the highway, phew! But, would you believe we did NOT stop at Starbucks or Moe's? This could be a first ever for us. We did get a burrito, though, and had enough BURN in the car to keep Eddie going.

Many thanks to George at Bike29.com for getting me my last minute parts..unfortunately..I forgot the handlebar I ordered has a 31.8 diameter and I forgot to bring the right stem..d'oh!

Not to get too ahead of myself here, but I've already decided that if we don't get more than 2 women to sign up for the Fools Gold 100 miler I'm going to do it. We need 3 women in the category to pay out the full amount..I would hate to see that money go to pay out more of the guys since I know the women are out there.

Sounds like a nice drive! I'd race but am in no condition physically or mentally for a challenge that huge! :)

Did you conquer your dilemma?

Have fun out there Nam!

I've seen the info on the race, and your tempting me, but I have a race up here the same weekend.

I hope you plan to do it again next year. I've already put it on my short list of races I want to do.

Good Luck this weekend!
