At the end of day three, I wrote on my phone:
The day Joann said "yes"
The day my kids were born.
We had to deal with getting Fletch's tire fixed, so the plan was to drop off the tire at Davis Equipment, go eat breakfast, then go ride the Gateway loop, then Ray aka Corporal Goose shows up. I met Goose in my trip last year and he has already became a legend in his own mind, 74 years old, 6'5" and can out ride guys half his age; he can also dole out more crap than 5 normal men, I think he actually wrote the instruction manual on "how to codge", he's loud, obnoxious, and one of the finest guys I've had the privilege to meet.
To be continued...
