Eve-ville 100 – Post Party

When I finished, it was way after we thought it would be because of the thunderstorm delay.  Everyone needed to get back home.  They had already broken down camp and everyone was pretty much ready to pull out.  So they did.  LP and the girls went with me down to the lake to try and do an “ice bath.”  I waited for everything else to get packed up in the truck and we all pulled out.  LP and...

Eve-ville 100 – The 24 Hours Before

                              It was time to leave for Eve-ville.  Gary, Kimberly, Shane and I were riding together.  They met at my house at 6:30ish that Friday morning 9/6.  It was an 8-hour drive.  We went to get Gary and made it to Grindstone around 3:30 p.m.  The plan was for Gary, Sheila and Jello to ride the course on...
