We made it back to Utah safely, and that’s what counts I guess. Some random stuff from the drive:
The most snow we saw the whole drive was on the Cajon Pass… It was already snowing at the base, which I’ve never seen. Being the Monday after a holiday week, I figure it was a gift from Himavat to the locals of Big Bear after being overloaded with kooks for two weeks.
Three kids and two adults in a station wagon for 12 hours is getting to be a bit much. I know that’s how everyone did it when we were kids, but wagons were bigger! Saving my pennies for something bigger…
Haley- “Do you know where Justin Bieber lives?”
Me- “No. You want to visit him?”
Haley- “Yes, to tell him he is the best singer EVER!!”
If anyone finds a Reynolds Assault 46mm full carbon clincher with a blue Continental tire on it along the 15 between Yermo and Primm, please return it to me. Seriously. Gut wrenching. I know I won’t get it back, but I hope someone that rides finds it.
Oh yeah, this wasn’t on the trip, but during the trip… I rode about twice what I normally would in a week and gained 2.5lbs. Do the math.
Oh yeah (again), Kelly has officially commited in writing to making her grand reappearance in the bike racing world! I am holding you to this, sweetness!!
