Day 3 - A little lost and always last!
Today was not such a good day. I am too exhausted to write much. Platoons 1 & 2 were last in the pack. Platoon missed the off ramp for the first stop so Platoon 2 stayed with Platoon one and we kept on rolling. Finally topped on a freeway on-ramp. Sat there deciding what should be done about this mishap. After a good 30 minutes of sitting in the sun whomever was in charge decided we should start rolling towards the next stop and hopefully the main pack would catch up to us and we could rejoin them.
It did work but we rolled through El Paso, Texas on the freeway at 40 mph. The cars were not very happy at the 25 bikes in the middle lane going 30 miles below the speed limit.
If you can believe it, the day got worse after that. I am just happy that I AM NOT THE ONE THAT MISSED THE OFF RAMP. SOMEONE ELSE EARNED THE NAME WRONG WAY TODAY. (names have been changed to protect the innocent)
A good night's sleep is needed. Tomorrow will be better!
