My butt might never be the same again...

Ah, RAGBRAI. I'll post more later with pictures, but I have a crazy work week this week so this will have to do for now.

Highlights:
* The best breakfast burrito ever
* Being awoken by a PA system at the campground at 2am telling us all to evacuate immediately to the storm shelters
* Riding the last 50 miles on Tuesday with Blink, who totally kicked it slow with Kori and I as we tooled along at 12-13 mph and then bothered him for the last 30 miles to tell us what his bike computer said as both our Garmins lost battery.
* I am still sitting on a pillow and am beginning to wonder about this chamois butter stuff...

And my roommate just called. RAGBRAI is going through Ames and Nevada (the town where she works). Apparently some jackass dumped tacks all over the road into Nevada to welcome the 10,000 riders coming through. So everyone is rolling into Nevada with flats. I just can't believe some people.

I have a nice big long string of technical words to describe the very tacky person ...

"the very tacky person" Ha, that's funny! Not the tacks, I mean the line.

I had one of those burritos yesterday and holy corn on a stick it was good! BEST EVER, I wish I had gotten two.

Yeah, it was nice meeting both yourself and Kori, you guys are awesome. Hope you recover and smack your race this weekend.

Go get'em!

Tacks! I can't believe the gall of some people. RAGBRAI-ers come here and spend money, support Iowa, and they are treated like that!? Grrrr.

Hope your butt feels better soon!

Burritos...mmmm...

As for the tacks - I say they follow the wisdom of Dumb and Dumber: "Kick his ass sea bass!"

Nitmos said...

Burritos and biking? Hmm, I would have thought those were 2 things never to combine. Glad you pulled it off.
