I hope you enjoyed the full moon as much as I did. So, no Moab, due to lack of interest from others. Back up plan was Boulder, but it seems like some storms might be coming through. Soooo, I guess I am headed off to Iowa on Sunday.
Today I went riding after Ray came home from work. It was pretty intense. We saw tons of deer as we worked our way uphill and then we had some nice down hill fun (I used Ray's girlfriends full suspension Trek this time and it felt Oh so nice). I ate it hard towards the end. First I checked myself, OK, then I saw the bike flying about 10 feet over my head and land in front of me. I called out to Ray thinking the bike was trashed, cuz I thought for sure the front rim would be folded at least. Turns out there wasn't any damage at all except for a couple raspberries on my low back. After we got home we gorged on pizza and melted in the hot tub and stared at the full moon above. The only drawback of the night was that I lost my sunglasses at the crash site and probably won't be able to look for them before I leave.
On another positive note, I finally heard back from BOB trailers who offered me a nice pro deal for my Yak purchase. I am psyched about this since I wasn't looking forward to spending retail price. So, big thanks to BOB for supporting my adventure.
In the near future, I plan on writing a little something about my experience searching for sponsorship for this trip. It might be helpful to some of you out there who might be thinking about doing the same for your own adventure.
Until next time...Dave
