Most Challenging Ride Ever!

August 5, 2011

My journey has certainly been one of the most EXTREMELY CHALLENGING rides EVER! Two days ago I came to a halt in Healy, due to high winds up to 20-25 mph.  temperature is in the low 50’s.  I had planned on staying overnight in Healy before I ventured off again but I was determined to get back on the sattle and peddle my skinny ass another 47 miles. Which in fact I did it!

I stopped at a bar lounge after my 47 mile ride and met three men who saw me on their way to the same lounge I stopped at with a look of determination on my face.  When I was talking to the three men, they commented on how they passed me up on the road,  turning to each other and saying, “SUCKS TO BE HIM!”

I now have three  meals left.  I’m almost to the end of my journey and I do have to pat myself on the back for one hell of EXTREMELY CHALLENGING RIDE!
