    NNC for reals

    Great ride today, my buddy Jim and his wife (well, mostly him) do the camp host thing up at Blue Mounds state park for the month of August (as well as July this year). Frankly, you couldn't force me to live in a 27 foot tin can for 2 months, I feel zero need to camp considering I live in he middle of the the woods. Anyway, last night he said he would be home today, when I asked if he would be able to ride, I got a non commital "probably". This morning he sounded less sure. So, I took off around 11 after I put the new deck* on my trailer. I headed into the wind (NE) and was 10 miles out when he texted me, I called him back and he said that he was ready to ride. I said I would head his way (he lives 9 miles south of me. I assumed we would meet on his side of the middle as usual, so I flipped and sprinted for 13.8 miles and met him about 2 miles from his house! 13.8 miles at a bit over 17 miles per hour! As is the turned out today, every time I changed direction, the wind shifted, TO A TAILWIND!! That just doesn't happen! We hit the southern apogee and headed west, on another brand freaking new road from the bed up, with 3 foot wide, paved shoulders and a tailwind. I got about a 1/2* mile ahead of him (in 3 miles), then, we headed north, wind followed FROM THE REAR! I turned east to get home and the wind shifted again.... Coming out of the West. I hit the bottom of the driveway with 53.76 miles and 2381 feet of ascending.*
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I'm sorry, T0G, but that sounds too perfect. I'm guessing you actually crashed out at the end of your driveway and hallucinated the rest. Get better soon, my friend.

    I'm about the Cloth. Great post about a miracle.
