It's Saturday and now I'm officially back in California. My knee has given out again. After 40 miles of riding I am back in the van hoping that somehow I can get better and ride again today. We are at a truck stop that has wireless internet.

We made baked potatoes last night. Incredible. Best meal of the tour. They were crisp and yummy with cheese, sour cream, and butter. MMMM MMMM GOOD! So healthy.

Well, I've become quite an expert on fixing tires. I had 4 flats yesterday. 4!!!! that cost me $12 in tires alone. DOH!!! I don't know what the deal is, but my back tire keeps popping. So far, so good with the latest tube.

Monica has also joined me in the van today. She lasted 22 miles. Jenny Choi is still charging forward. She leaves so early and just keeps going at her own pace. It's incredible. Good for her. Well, I'm going to go ice my knee. Be well everyone.
Peace, mike park
