It's been a while since my last post. Boy, hit's been a very busy and super enjoyable time. First odd, I did RAGBRAI and met up with some friends and made some new ones along the way. After 7 days of cycling, I did 480+ miles. Day number 6 was the toughest ride OI had ever done. It was pouring down rain during the first 50 miles , with wind and hills added in. Saw many folks SAG in, but I was very determined not to allow the conditions to have me give in. After the ride, I visited family and an old friend that I had not seen for over 20 years. God, it was good to see him and his beautiful bride. Just two days after getting home, we took off for Cabo San Lucas where we enjoyed the sun, the beaches, the food, and the people. Cabo was sort of a reward for my wonderful Cuchi, who took care of all while I was doing RAGBRAI. She and our son mentioned that it was their best vacation ever. So, overall, myself and my family have had a busy, but wonderful time. Now, I'm back and have 2 weeks to get it together and take off for the "Hotter than Hell 100" bike ride at the end of August. HOOAAA!!
