- Day of Rest
Our lovely and talented publicist, Kelly Dayley, joined
us today at the Garff home. We call her our publicist, but in truth
she is the one doing all the behind-the-scenes work that keeps this
thing running. It wasn’t immediately apparent who had ridden a bike
to Lafayette and who had arrived by plane, as the four of us were
ready to get out and do something (we played some absolutely awful
tennis) while Kelly spent the greater part of the day passed out
on the TV room couch.
We had some quality sharing time this evening with Craig
Stevens, the man who rode this route in 1971. He showed us pictures
and journal entries from his ride and we showed some video from
ours, which we realized was VERY BORING. We’ll have to edit and
compress it into a highlight reel before we show it to anyone else.
