He's baaaaaaaaack...

I'll let him tell the story, but to satisfy curious minds, Chris is back and alive. Not exactly his intended outcome, but I think in the long run it'll turn out to be a victory in one way or another.

On a personal note, I don't want to drive for any extended period alone. Again. Ever. (ok, at least not for a while). I had my own endurance race this weekend only it involved a car, a dog, several inadequate maps, some written discriptions of the Grand Loop course, two shady gas stations, a HUGE Mountain Dew, getting lost, and being awake for 33 of 36 hours, driving at least 14 of those, and crying for probably at least 2.

After all of that, we're both home safe and sound. We spent Monday and Tuesday relaxing, resting, and eating. We even went on an hour ride last night on dirt with the road bikes. New experience for me, but still surprisingly fun.

Lots of funny stories to come, but I don't want to ruin the surprise of Chris's write-up.

I can't wait to hear about what happened, but I'm glad that both of you are back safe and sound. And I'm also glad that school is done for you for the year, so that you are able to take the time to recover with him
