No, I did a couple of double centuries about a century ago, (ok, 35 years ago), but the longest my wife and I have done together is a 200k, which is barely more than a century. Given our current condition, however, we couldn't even begin to do that. But ... one day we will again. We have no interest in PBP, but do want to get back into distance riding for a long tour someday, and brevets are good shake down rides.

Do you know what day you plan on your stop in Dade city?

Ok. Let me know when you nail it down a little tighter. We're only 20 miles west of Dade City, and depending on the day of the week I may be able to offer a place to stay overnight / some companionship for a few miles.

Bill

No problem. If you choose to take advantage of the offer, we have a spare bedroom with a king size bed, 3 couches and/or plenty of floor space, plus 3 showers. We'd figured either hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill if you guys wanted to protein-pack, or my famous Chilly Willy's Ghetti-chili if you want to carbo-load!

Entertainment for the evening would be sitting around watching caveman TV, (a bonfire), while regaling one another with tales of daring-do from another time, `cause the older we gets, the faster we was or the further we went. And you know, the first liar don't even stand a chance!

No hurry. Just give me a call when you've figured out the logistics.

That'll work, and if you guys decide to spend the night in the area, we have a 30 amp, (camper), electrical hookup and a dump station right here.

Love to. We both might even be in good enough shape to take the tandem so we don't slow you down and ride up and back to our truck.

I'm sending my contact info.

No problem Glenn. As it happens, I haven't been on a bicycle since we last emailed. Out life has been a really sad country song .... literally. Just before Christmas we had a pet of 13 years go down; one of my brothers-in-law passed; our rental tenants moved unexpectedly and left the property a mess; and my 83 y/o mom fell, broke four ribs, and I became primary care-giver. All since December 15th!

So, all that getting-back-in-shape springtime riding I was planning on went out the window. Bet I'd have a hard time doing 20 miles right now. But you'd still be welcome to use us as hostel anytime.
