Good Morning everyone. It is 5:45 and Rick is taking a shower while I guzzle coffee.
Unfortunately Rick only had about 3 hours of sleep. He gets insomnia and refuses to take a sleeping pill so he can sleep well. I had 6 hours of sleep, could have used 8, but my ride will be alot easier then Ricks. I would drive and he could sleep while we drive to Shenandoah but he probably won't do that. Poor guy. I would hate to do a 40 mile bike ride on 3 hours sleep. I asked him if he wanted to cancel the ride though and he said no so its still on.
We are not sure how to dress. If the motel will let us check in this early we can change clothes there. Both of us will have to layer dress as right now it is only 51 but it should get to 78 by this afternoon. A lot of motels won't let you check in though until 1 pm. We are hoping since this one doesn't have that much business they will bend the rules for us. If not we will have to be already dressed to ride.
My camera is ready. I am ready. I have my last problem in mind and think I have the answer. Since I don't have bike pants with padding in the right places to keep my bottom from getting sore I am going to be wearing some incontience pads of my late father in laws, stop laughing! They are the same size as the pads in bike shorts and will pad my bottom in the right places. Didn't cost me a dime. Necessity is the mother of invention.
I have 2 bottles of 5 hour energy drink. Rick is definately going to need his.
Is anyone else having trouble with spell check? It wont work for me for the last 3 days. Oh well. See you all tomorrow.
