Two long days. Said farewell to Francois. Rode 225 yesterday and 185 ish today. Road a real nice, flat old railroad bed for about 125 miles yesterday and today. Carl had about 5 flats, I had 1. These days happen on the tour, sometimes things happen that throw the schedule off. But... I could be working or sitting in a pizza shop in the gaza strip having bullets whip by me, so if say I'm pretty lucky. Lots of lakes in Minnesota and beautiful areas. Pretty lucky folk to live in these parts.
