I think my nickname / trail name should maybe be ‘double zero’. I seem to take two days off quite often. This time was a little different from normal though – I actually felt like riding out. Josh, Jenny and Tre, however, were taking a rest day here and I submitted to peer pressure. Actually, our schedules from here to the next town stop of Del Norte are looking the same and I’m super excited at the possibility of traveling with this group for a little while. I may not be able to keep up during the day, but I should be able to make it to the same camp at night.

Like I said, I had the itch to get moving today. Instead, I sat all day, rotating between the park, bike shop and coffee shop (and later various pizza establishments). While I sat in the park this morning, I saw someone ride down the street on a Penny Farthing. I hopped on the unicycle to chase him down. I wish I could have watched the scene from a third party’s perspective.

Not a whole lot to report today. We’re stealth camping along the Arkansas River tonight and I’m having a blast with this new company.
