another day in missoula
hi It finially rained lastnight it was a little help for the fires out here that are out of controll we could have used more rain, and will probeley get more today, I am stayin an extra day here for no good reason other than i believe when out touring i shouldnt be in a hurry! besides the rain will be long gone by tomorrow, when on the road and rain comes you have no choice but to get wet today i had a choice.
yesterday i walked over to the adventure cycling hq. a few of the people i met on the road have tiold me not to waste my time as they were dissapointed, i dont know what they were expecting, but i had a very nice visit. I didnt expect anything since i know this is a business for them and they were all at their job. so i just walked in and nosed arround a bit. the reciptionist asked if she could help me? i told her i am out touring and wanted to see what the place looked like. she showed me to a room with a lot of pictures from the early days to present some good stuff to read, free bottled water, soda ice cream. then she asked if i wanted to use a computer for a while i did but it was a mac, and i dont really get along wioth macs.
then i read the lastes issue of their magazine it has a really good artical on heart training by Ed. Burk and aniother by someone else on muscle cramping.
befor i left they took my picture and hung it up on the wall. all in all i had a good visit with them.
