Wandered around Silver City with my parents this morning while waiting for my part to arrive. I got the call around noon and we rushed off to get it installed and to get me back on the route.

Today’s thirty some miles were all on pavement. There was a big climb, but the riding went by quickly as my parents leapfrogged me in their car. Every few miles, I’d round a bend to see their camera lenses aimed at me.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet, but I’ve come to accept my new trail name, Butterfeet, as I’ve been dubbed by the Queen Bee. Supposedly, I trip over things a lot. Today, as I crossed a busy intersection on foot, my feet tangled multiple times. I may now actually be more graceful riding a unicycle than walking.
