Good news and bad news

July 15, 2011

First the good news: I have a bike!  Cain Park was able  to correct the problem, or perhaps I should say, identify the source.  Ok, maybe both.  On my practise rides I had one of the panniers loaded with more weight than the other.  That was the root cause of the unsteadiness.  The headset was also a tad loose, making things worse.  They worked on both bikes (I asked them to look at the bike I rode in previous rides as “plan B”) all morning.  About 2:00 p.m., Gary brought the Expedition over and asked me to check it out.  I rode it 12 miles and was able to hit 26 mph on a downhill portion. Nice and stable, no complaints.  It’s ready for the big ride.

Now for the bad news or as I like to put it: “What else could possibly go wrong?!”

The food and supplies I mailed via U.S. Postal service is MIA.  No one can tell me a thing about it, even though it was sent via Registered mail.  They just don’t know.  No wonder the country is going to hell in a handbasket.  The government can’t even keep track of a package!

I called the PO in Coldfoot and they knew I was looking for it, but they don’t know where it is.  Oh well, it’s not a show stopper.

Don’t know if I’ll post again before I leave.

Thank you for your support.  Doug
