Sam Swanson got lost again. We're still not sure if we've found him, but at least we know he's alive. We were about to call the state troopers. But he called us and he's safe, but they're still not home. We have no idea why this is the case. It's friggin frustrating. Sam rode and extra 30 miles!! He is the winner... He won the race, but unfortunately he kept going. DOH!! I think we spent a good $30 on gas looking for him. He's a good boy, but we're all a little frustrated right now. Gerry has been looking for him all night. I know he didn't even get to eat dinner.

Well, I'm happy to say that my knee is 100% better. I was able to ride the entire day. We're only 20 miles from the coast and I can't wait to see the ocean. It's going to be a beautiful experience. Steve Choi was todays tragedy. He lasted 4 miles and then rode the rest of the trip in the van. Jenny Choi is with us now and she made it.... It was like the TORTOISE AND THE HARE. She is the tortoise. Good girl.. Monica made it 50 miles, but stopped in tears as her tail bone ached and ached. Poor girl.

For dinner I made freeze dried potato soup with rice and green beans. We had no electricity so I made the food in the bathroom of the campground. It was weird because it was a communal bathroom so people were probably wondering why the heck there was a big pot of rice in the bathroom. Hmmmm....

Well, so good. Excited for tomorrow. Be good.
Peace, mike park
